Bombardier's Global 7000 and Global 8000 aircraft will use the fly-by-wire technology in development for the company's CSeries regional airliners by Parker Aerospace, the airframer said today. Bombardier announced seven new suppliers for the ultra-longrange high-speed business jets set for entry into service in 2016 and 2017, respectively.

The airframer also selected Rockwell Collins to supply its Pro Line Fusion integrated flight deck for the 7000 and 8000, making Fusion common among all four Global aircraft (including the Global 5000 and Global 6000). Components for the Fusion system will include Rockwell Collins HGS-6000 head-up displays with synthetic vision, but not touchscreen displays. A forward-looking infrared sensor vendor has not yet been chosen for the enhanced vision system.

Other vendors selected today include Messier-Bugatti-Dowty for the main and nose landing gear, Meggitt for the wheels and braking system, and Liebherr for the air management system.
