Aircraft details of the new Global aircraft family will be revealed at the NBAA convention and exhibition. The launch event will be held at the Bombardier Pavilion located in the NBAA static display park, at the DeKalb Peachtree Airport, on Monday, October 18. 

?Our commitment to offer innovative new products goes beyond being the industry leader,? said Guy C. Hachey, President and Chief Operating Officer, Bombardier Aerospace.


?Bombardier has a solid product development strategy that combines advanced technologies with environmental responsibility. Our intention is to grow our leadership position and the time is right to move forward with our extended Global aircraft family.? 

?The Global aircraft family will build upon the existing successful Global 5000 and Global Express XRS jets in the large business aircraft category,? said Steve Ridolfi, President, Bombardier Business Aircraft. ?We are focused on introducing aircraft that maximize efficiency while offering ultimate flexibility for our customers.

A world-leading manufacturer of innovative transportation solutions, from commercial aircraft and business jets to rail transportation equipment, systems and services, Bombardier Inc. is a global corporation headquartered in Canada. Its revenues for the fiscal year ended Jan. 31, 2010, were $19.4 billion, and its shares are traded on the Toronto Stock Exchange (BBD).

After acquiring Canadair and restoring it to profitability, Bombardier acquired in 1989 the near-bankrupt Short Brothers aircraft manufacturing company in Belfast, Northern Ireland. This was followed in 1990 by the acquision of the bankrupt Learjet Company of Wichita, Kansas, builder of the world-famous Learjet business aircraft and finally the money-losing Boeing subsidiary de Havilland Aircraft of Canada based in Toronto, Ontario in 1992. The aerospace arm now accounts for over half of the company's revenue.

Bombardier is the fourth-largest aircraft company in the world in terms of yearly delivery of commercial airplanes overall, and the third-largest in terms of yearly delivery of airplanes overall. Bombardier is listed as an index component to the Dow Jones Sustainability World and North America indexes.
