First flight for New Bombardier Global Vision Flight Deck
Bombardier’s Global Vision cockpit successfully completed its first Bombardier test flight on a Global Express XRS aircraft today.
The Global Express XRS aircraft departed from Bombardier’s Downsview facility in Toronto, Ontario, at 10:20 a.m. EDT and returned to Downsview for landing at 3:28 p.m. EDT. Upon completion of initial flying the aircraft will be ferried to the Bombardier Flight Test Center in Wichita, Kansas, where it will complete a rigorous flight test program, resulting in Transport Canada, FAA and EASA type certification.
Scheduled for availability on Global 5000 and Global Express XRS jets, the Global Vision flight deck pairs the latest technological advancements from Rockwell Collins – the Pro Line Fusion avionics suite – with superior design aesthetics to create the ultimate flight control environment and provides pilots with an unprecedented level of situational awareness and comfort.
