Bombardier grew out of a young mechanic’s inventive and entrepreneurial spirit. Born in 1907, Joseph-Armand Bombardier built his first “snow vehicle” at the young age of 15. His motivation? To help people travel across the snow-covered roads of rural Québec in Canada.
Thus, in 1937, Joseph-Armand Bombardier achieved his first major commercial success with the launch of the seven-passenger B7 snowmobile. Five years later, L’Auto-Neige Bombardier Limitée was officially founded to manufacture the 12-passenger B12 snowmobile. A series of other snow-going vehicles followed for ambulance, freight transport, mail delivery and school transportation services.
The Learjet Corporation acquisition in 1990 allowed Bombardier to launch the Learjet 60, which would soon become the top-selling aircraft in its class. This iconic private jet has since been reinvented and perfected by Bombardier engineers. The latest version, Learjet 75 Liberty is built on legendary Learjet strengths and successes while leveraging the latest aircraft technology. The jets feature a new modern design interior, a next-generation cabin management system, superior aircraft performance and low operating costs.
Its transformation complete, Bombardier is now a global leader in aviation, creating innovative and game-changing business jets. Our products and services provide world-class experiences that set new standards in passenger comfort, energy efficiency, reliability and safety.
In late 2021, we launched the Challenger 3500, featuring the most technologically advanced cabin in its class and a full range of productivity enhancing features. And in 2022, we introduced the world to the industry’s new flagship, the Global 8000, an aircraft combining the fastest speed, the longest range and the smoothest ride with proven reliability and the healthiest, best-connected cabin in the industry. We are continuing to expand our service offerings, providing exceptional, around-the-clock support to customers worldwide operating our growing in-service fleet of more than 5,000 aircraft.
In 2022 we established Bombardier Defense to offer unique aircraft solutions to meet the growing needs of special mission operators. Our aircraft are taking on a full range of demanding missions, from urgent humanitarian assistance, head-of-state transport to airspace calibration, infrastructure validation and battlefield and border surveillance.
As our aircraft soar to new heights, Bombardier continues to keep a keen eye toward the future. In 2022, we revealed our EcoJet research project , an ambitious, innovative platform aimed at advancing groundbreaking technologies in sustainable aviation.
