Global 7500 To Make Touchdown In Atlanta for Super Bowl

With business aircraft operators descending on Atlanta-area airports  for the 53rd Super Bowl, Bombardier Business Aircraft is using the event to kick off a world tour of its flagship Global 7500. The newly certified, 7,700-nautical-mile twinjet will be on display at Signature Flight Support’s Atlanta DeKalb Peachtree Airport (PDK) facility, where the Canadian aircraft manufacturer will also have a support team on standby for any operational or maintenance needs of customers flying in for the big game.

“This year, Bombardier jets will be on display at more locations than ever before,” said Bombardier Business Aircraft senior vice president of worldwide sales and marketing Peter Likoray. “Our Global 7500, as well as our entire fleet, is taking to the skies to bring the show closer to customers. The Super Bowl is the first major stop on the Global 7500’s schedule of weekly worldwide appearances in 2019.”

The first Global 7500 has been retired from flight-test duties but has been painted and will be used as a company demonstrator.

The company will have its mobile response team (MRT) technicians on site at PDK along with two MRT trucks, ready to get any operators needing maintenance assistance back in the air. Last year’s Super Bowl attracted more than 1,500 business jets from around the world, and this year’s event is expected to do the same, Bombardier said.
