With the roar of a lion, Bombardier Aerospace celebrates the achievement of 75 firm orders for the ultra-long-range business jet Global Express.

A troupe of traditional Singaporean lion dancers, joined by John Lawson, Bombardier business aircraft's president, sales, entertained show visitors.

"The aircraft is receiving a warm reception in international markets and we expect firm orders to continue climbing in the months ahead as the aircraft proves its capability in flight test," says Lawson.

While 70% of the world's business aircraft are based in the US, 50% of Global Express orders have come from elsewhere, bucking the trend.

"We believe that has much to do with the global possibilities of the aircraft which can fly 6,700 miles (12,400km)," says Lawson.
