The cabin of the ultralong-range Bombardier Global 6000 ($62.31 million) is among the most spacious and comfortable in the private-aviation industry. It’s more than 42 feet long, nearly 8 feet wide, and 6 feet 2 inches tall. Even at 51,000 feet, the pressurization feels like you’re flying at less than 6,000 feet. It can be configured to seat as many as 19 passengers, or it can include an aft stateroom with its own lavatory, club seating for eight in the main seating area, and a work space with a table that seats five.
A comfortable cabin is essential when you fly as far and long as you can on a Global 6000. The jet takes its name from its range in nautical miles, which equals just over 6,900 statute miles. That’s greater than the distance from San Francisco to Moscow. The jet has a cruising speed of 562 mph and a 195-cubic-foot baggage area that’s accessible from the aft lavatory.
Originally marketed as the Global Express XRS, an upgraded version of the Global Express, the Global 6000 has been in service since 2006. “It’s still a great choice until the Gulfstream products [the G500 and G600] come into play,” says Robb Report Private Aviation Advisory Board member Bill Quinn, the founder and president of Aviation Management Systems in New Hampshire.
