Gulfstream will be showcasing its record-breaking, award-winning fleet at the upcoming European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (EBACE) in Geneva next week.
The super-midsize G280; the high-performing G550; the all-new, award-winning G500 and G600 - and its flagship G650ER - will all be in the static display for customer viewing.
"Europe continues to be a strong market for Gulfstream, and we look forward to another successful EBACE,” said Gulfstream president Mark Burns.
The newest aircraft in Gulfstream’s fleet, the clean-sheet G500 and G600, are equipped with the award-winning Symmetry Flight Deck, the most technologically advanced flight deck in business aviation. The G600 is capable of flying 6,500 nautical miles/12,038 kilometers at Mach 0.85 and can connect Geneva to Hong Kong at Mach 0.90. The G500 is able to fly 5,200 nm/9,630 km at Mach 0.85. The aircraft is also capable of connecting Geneva to Chicago and did so in 8 hours and 1 minute, setting a city-pair record.
Gulfstream’s exhibit at EBACE will also include the G500 and G600 Symmetry Flight Deck experience, where guests can conduct a pilot-led simulated flight using the active control sidesticks and extensive touchscreen technology.
Gulfstream’s flagship, the ultralong-range G650ER
Gulfstream’s flagship, the ultralong-range G650ER, has a range of 7,500 nm/13,890 km at Mach 0.85 and can connect Geneva to Singapore at Mach 0.90 and Geneva to Santiago at Mach 0.87. The aircraft recently set a record for the farthest, fastest, nonstop business jet flight in history, connecting Singapore to Tucson, Arizona - a distance of 8,379 nm/15,518 km, in 15 hours and 23 minutes. To date, the G650 family has earned 90 city-pair records.
The iconic G550 has a maximum range of 6,750 nm/12,501 km and can link Geneva to Tokyo at Mach 0.85. The aircraft remains a popular choice for both commercial and special mission applications.
Gulfstream’s agile G280 can fly 3,600 nm/6,667 km at Mach 0.80 and easily connects Geneva to Dubai at Mach 0.84; the jet holds more than 65 city-pair records, including New York to Geneva in 7 hours and 34 minutes.
“Our aircraft offer the industry’s best combination of range, speed and performance, as demonstrated by our fleet’s consistently growing number of city-pair records” said Burns. “Gulfstream aircraft continue to win awards, set records and redefine the capabilities of business jet aircraft.”
In addition to the Symmetry Flight Deck, the Gulfstream exhibit will also feature a real-time seat configurator, showcasing Gulfstream design innovation, paired with a physical seat display to see and feel comfort and design options.
