Bombardier Business Aircraft announced that Global aircraft have achieved more than 2,500 takeoffs and landings at Aspen’s airport since 2000.

Bombardier said that the Global business jets demonstrate renowned agility and deft landing capabilities at Aspen/Pitkin County Airport, which is nestled among Rocky Mountain peaks at approximately 7,820 feet (2,384 m) above sea level.

On the 4th of November 2016, Bombardier Global 7000 has completed its maiden flight in Toronto, Canada, at 10:25 a.m. EST (2:25 p.m. UTC). This flight marks the start of a flight test program for the newest member of Bombardier’s Global aircraft family, which is scheduled to enter into service in the second half of 2018.

Peter Likoray, Senior Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Bombardier Business Aircraft, stated: “For outdoor and ski enthusiasts, there is no better way to spend a vacation than taking in the beautiful mountain views of Aspen.”

Bombardier claimed that the Global 6000 aircraft is the largest purpose-built business jet capable of smoothly mastering the high altitude Aspen airfield.
