Production of the third-generation Global 6000 started in 2012. Its flexible wing and 97.5 lb/sq ft (476 kg/m2) wing loading, the highest among its competitors, gives a comfortable ride in turbulence. On long trips, its fuel burn during the first hour is 5,000 and 4,000 lb (2.3 and 1.8 t) for the second, then for the third 3,000 and 2,500 lb (1.4 and 1.1 t) afterward. A Checks are scheduled every 750 hours, and C Checks every 30 months. Engine reserves amount to $260 per hour. Over 315 Bombardier Global 6000 jets were delivered by March 2019, while its competitors include the more fuel efficient 6,200 nmi (11,500 km) Dassault Falcon 8X, the 6,500 nmi (12,000 km) Gulfstream G600, and the 6,900 nmi (12,800 km) G650.
Bombardier’s Vision flight deck is upgraded with Rockwell Collins Pro Line Fusion avionics from the Express/XRS Honeywell Primus 2000. It has improved acoustical insulation compared to its predecessor. By 2018, competition from the Gulfstream G650ER pressured it to a $40 million value from $62 million in 2016. It offers higher cruise speed and improved cabin layout and lighting. The range of the Bombardier Global 6000 is increased by adding a 1,486 lb (674 kg) fuel tank at the wing root. Bombardier claims it takes 15 minutes less to fuel the Global 6000 than the original model, thanks to improved computer systems and mechanical refinements.
