Bombardier unveils Soleil lighting system on its Global 7500 aircraft

Posted 1 May 2019 · Add Comment

Bombardier Business Aircraft has unveiled the Soleil lighting system on the award-winning Global 7500 business jet.

 

Designed and developed exclusively for the Global 7500 aircraft, the innovative Soleil lighting system is aviation’s first circadian rhythm-based cabin lighting technology fully integrated with the Flight Management System, and it introduces the revolutionary Dynamic Daylight Simulation feature, which can help combat jet lag.

“We’re pleased to showcase the innovative Soleil lighting system on the Global 7500 aircraft,” said Peter Likoray, Senior Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Bombardier Business Aircraft. “The Global 7500 jet is the world’s longest-range purpose-built business aircraft with an unrivalled cabin experience. Along with the aircraft’s master suite with a full bed, stand-up shower and exceptionally smooth ride, the Soleil lighting system helps passengers arrive at their destination feeling more rested and refreshed.”

The Soleil lighting system’s dynamic daylight simulation uses specific combinations of red and blue light wavelengths that studies have shown to help stimulate or suppress the production of melatonin – which assists in regulating the sleep-wake cycle and can help contribute to synchronising passengers’ circadian rhythms to the time at their destination.

The Soleil lighting system is fully integrated into the Global 7500 aircraft’s nice touch cabin management system, and can also be customized to a passenger’s preference for either extended sleep or productivity via the system’s unique circadian adjustment setting. The Soleil lighting system can also be programmed to schedule the optimal times for meal services, allowing the cabin crew to better prepare and plan more efficiently.

The Soleil lighting system is a standard feature on the Global 7500 aircraft, which entered into service in December 2018.
