Best of the Best 2013: Business Aircraft: Ultralong-Range: Bombardier Global 6000
When a jet can travel nonstop for 12 hours, it should have a spacious and comfortable cabin. The Bombardier Global 6000 (514.861.9481, www.businessaircraft.bombardier.com) has such range (6,900 miles and a cruise speed of 581 mph) and such a cabin. The cabin is quiet, long (48 feet 5 inches), and wide (8 feet), and depending on the configuration, it can seat as few as eight passengers or as many as 19. Natural light enters the cabin through 28 extra-large windows and floods the space. Passengers can access the roomy baggage area while in transit. The cabin also includes an aft stateroom with an optional stand-up shower and an area near the cockpit where a pilot can rest during a long trip. The Bombardier Vision flight deck is equipped with an industry-first heads-up display that features synthetic-vision capabilities. Bombardier began delivering the $58.5 million aircraft last year.
