Bombardier has announced that Global 7500 aircraft started arriving at the company’s Montreal facilities last month, where high-precision completion work is being carried out on this industry-defining jet.
Skilled workers at Bombardier’s state-of-the-art Centre of Excellence in Dorval, Quebec, have been building and assembling complete interior sets including kitchens, state room beds, dining furniture and Nuage seats for multiple customer aircraft since the centre’s inauguration in 2017.
As part of the development program, interiors are validated on the ground in a one-of-a-kind Bombardier-designed test rig that replicates the conditions of flight related to airframe motions and flight loads using a production fuselage mounted on a pneumatic bed. This process allowed for the validation of the interior’s fit and finish well in advance of its actual installation on the Architect, the fourth flight test vehicle.
Bombardier is now using this unique tool for the interiors installation process of its production aircraft to ensure enhanced operational efficiency and an uncompromised experience for customers.Email Post to a Friend
