Barbados has been epic!! 4 days of adventure on the island centring around the @bushyparkbarbados Festival of Speed. We’ve had a mix of weather, cars, planes and some hilarious moments. Can’t wait for next years! Now on route to Miami :)! @jensonbutton_22 @wallacepjw @willstevens_ @zane.maloney.racing @bushyparkbarbados @oxfordvaughan
On Monday, Bombardier confirmed that the first examples of its next generation Global 7000 private jet are undergoing final assembly at its factory near Toronto, Canada.
Thus far, the Montreal-based airplane maker says its three Global 7000 test planes have conducted over 500 hours worth of flight testing.
"The Global 7000 aircraft's flight validation program is making steady headway because of the aircraft's reliable and mature configuration while in parallel, solid progress of the testing on structural and systems rigs is supporting certification activities as per plan," Bombardier Vice President of product development and chief engineer, François Caza, said in a statement.
With two more test planes under construction, Bombardier says it's confident the Global 7000 will be able to complete its testing and certification program in time to enter service in the second half of 2018.
The long-delayed Global 7000, a victim of Bombardier's recent financial troubles, is expected to be one of the most capable and expensive private jets in the air with a price tag of $72.8 million.

INSANE drifting fun in the GT3RS last night @bushyparkbarbados with @willstevens_ following behind in the GTE Ferrari. Unfortunately the night drifting that was a lot better than this practice run didn’t come out on the GoPro so here is just a taster with a lot more in my story from Will filming externally... from a race car 😂
Today the show opens @bushyparkbarbados ! We have planes racing cars, F1 cars, Supercars, GT cars, Karting stars and much more. Can’t wait to get out in some of the machinery here today. Hopefully everything has air-con 🙄
• To have the opportunity to drive the mono in the mountains in Wales was amazing. And soon have one at home is a dream coming true. Thanks for everything @pushkargodambe @discovermono you guys are the best 🙌🏻• #bacmono
At the track today as well as exploring some of the island before the big open day tomorrow @bushyparkbarbados Festival of Speed! Make sure you buy your tickets today! Can’t wait to get out on track with @jensonbutton_22 @estebanocon @willstevens_ @wallacepjw and the rest of the crew!
A soaking wet start to the day ended in beautiful sun setting glory at Oulton park coaching @powderflow in his beautiful @discovermono and Porsche Turbo S Gen2 as well as Mark in his lovely handling Porsche Cayman. Tomorrow we are @angleseycircuit doing some development testing in a special single seater :) 📸: @andrewlofthouse
