BRIEF HISTORY – GLOBAL EXPRESS XRS
BOMBARDIER GLOBAL EXPRESS XRS (2005-2012)
The Global XRS was the third of Bombardier’s four business jet aircraft types designed to compete in the emerging ultra-long range large-cabin market. The Global XRS was the pinnacle of Bombardier’s product range. In early 2000, the ultra-long range market was a newer class of big cabin business jets capable of flying 5,000 nautical miles or more. The Global XRS has the greatest range of Bombardier’s four business jets, measuring 6,305 nautical miles.On October 6th, 2003 Bombardier announced the new variant of the Express, the Global Express XRS and was launched in 2004. It took them eight long years to manufacture it. The Global Express XRS (BD 700-1A10) is an enhanced variant of the original Global Express aircraft, with a faster cruising speed, longer range, and a more spacious and well-lit cabin. According to reports, the letters have no meaning and were picked just to boost the brand’s image. The increased range is accomplished by adding a 1,486 lb. (674 kg.) fuel tank to the wing root.
CABIN COMFORTS – GLOBAL EXPRESS XRS
As with all Bombardier Aerospace products, it features an opulent and thoughtfully designed cabin. The Global Express XRS was the biggest business jet until it was overtaken by the Gulfstream G650. It has a maximum capacity of 12 to 16 persons in three cabin sections: a forward four-seat club area, a centre four-seat conference section, and an aft three-seat divan facing two chairs. Near the flight deck the majority feature a forward galley, a crew rest chair, and a crew lavatory. The 10.3-psi cabin pressurization maintains a cabin altitude of 4,500 feet up to 45,000 feet and 5,680 feet at 51,000 feet. The cabin measures 14.73 m (48 ft) in length unimpeded, but the floor has been lowered 51 mm (2.0 in) from the Challenger to enhance shoulder width, and the windows have been moved and enlarged by 25%. The cabin is equipped with a noise and vibration-cancelling technology from Ultra Electronics which provides tranquil flight conditions. Interior layouts can be customized to accommodate office, stateroom, or conference-style rooms. In flight, passengers can reach the luggage compartment located at the aft of the cabin. At the entrance of the cabin, on the port side, are solid AirStair’s with a hand railing to ease the boarding process.The new Global Express XRS features an upgraded cabin pressurization system and two extra cabin windows, one front and one aft. A new lighting system utilizing LED technology enhances the ambient lighting in the cabin.
POWER AND PERFORMANCE – GLOBAL EXPRESS XRS
Powered by two powerful Rolls-Royce Deutschland BR710A2-20 turbofan engines each producing 14,470 lbs of thrust. The engines are positioned at the rear of the aircraft on de Havilland pylons and Bombardier (previously Shorts) nacelles. The hydraulic two petal thrust reversers were created by International Nacelle Systems. The engines operate under complete authority of a computerized engine control system (FADEC). The aircraft is equipped with both gravity and pressure refueling systems. The Global Express XRS has a range of 6,305 nautical miles. The aircraft’s high cruising speed is 504 knots, regular cruise speed is 488 knots, and long-range cruise speed is 458 knots. The aircraft can operate at a maximum altitude of 51,000 ft.. The landing distance is 3,667 feet, with a balanced field length of 6,190 feet.
FLIGHT DECK – GLOBAL EXPRESS XRS
The Global XRS’s flight deck is equipped with a dual electronic flight information system (EFIS) with six high-resolution CRT multifunction displays measuring 8in x 7in, a twin Rockwell Collins digital radio altimeter, and standby airspeed altimeters, artificial horizon, and heading indicator. The aircraft’s avionics system is based on the Honeywell Primus 2000 XP II, which features triple digital air data computers, an automatic flight control system from Thales Avionics (formerly Sextante Avionique), dual flight management, a terrain collision avoidance system TCAS II, and an electronic ground proximity warning system (EGPWS).Thales Avionics has certified its head-up flight display system (HFDS) for the Global Express. The HFDS has a wide field of vision (40°x 26°) and a holographic optical combiner. The communications equipment include HF and VHF radios from Rockwell Collins, as well as twin transponders and communication management systems. Coltech’s selective calling system has five channels, as does a Honeywell flight data recorder and a cockpit voice recorder.
