Bombardier Delivers Fifth Business Jet for Saab’s Airborne Surveillance Solution

Bombardier delivered a fifth Global business jet to Swedish defense supplier Saab’s Linköping, Sweden, location. The aircraft is ready for conversion into Saab’s airborne early warning and control solution known as GlobalEye. The aircraft was delivered to Saab from Bombardier’s Toronto manufacturing site and underwent interior completions work at Flying Colours in Peterborough, ON, prior to arriving in Sweden.

“Bombardier Global aircraft are ideally suited for conversion into specialized assets, and we are recognized around the world for our collaborative, flexible approach and unparalleled expertise,” Steve Patrick, vice president of specialized aircraft at Bombardier, said. “Our Global 6000 aircraft and increasingly its successor, our Global 6500 aircraft, are known as the go-to platforms for high-altitude, long-endurance missions that require significant payload capability with ample available power, hosted on a reliable platform featuring advanced avionics and systems technology. Bombardier’s signature smooth flight technology provides a comfortable environment for operators and highly stable platform for sensors.”

“Saab partners with industry leaders, which is why we chose Bombardier’s Global 6000 aircraft as the platform for our advanced airborne early warning and control solution. We are looking forward to continuing our collaboration with Bombardier and Canadian industry,” Carl-Johan Bergholm, senior vice president and head of Saab business area surveillance, said.

Flying Colours supports Saab through the introduction of a practical and functional interior for mission system operators.

“Designing a special mission interior necessitates an intelligent approach, ingenuity and imagination,” Sean Gillespie, executive vice president for Flying Colours, said. “Our work with Saab showcases the high levels of technical expertise delivered by our experience, knowledge and the exceptional talent within our team.”
