Flagship Aircraft Demonstrates Superior Speed And Range Capabilities
SAVANNAH, Ga., February 25, 2013 — Gulfstream Aerospace Corp.’s new flagship aircraft, the ultra-large-cabin, ultra-long-range G650, recently established four city-pair speed records in five days, connecting cities in the U.S., Middle East and Russia.
“The G650, which entered service just over two months ago, is redefining what business jet operators can expect from their aircraft,” said Larry Flynn, president, Gulfstream. “Its combination of performance, range, speed and comfort is unparalleled in our industry. When you fly on a G650, you are in for an unforgettable experience.”
Milestone Achieved In Five Years Of Service
SAVANNAH, Ga., February 20, 2013 — Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. today celebrated a milestone for the fleet leaders of its mid-sized G150 aircraft. The two G150s, which are owned and operated by a U.S.-based multinational energy company, recently combined to surpass 10,000 flight hours. This achievement was accomplished without incident and took only five years.
“We are very pleased that the G150 has been such a reliable workhorse for our customers,” said Larry Flynn, president, Gulfstream. “The two G150s that lead the fleet continue to demonstrate the superior dispatch reliability and availability rates that our company takes great pride in. To reach 10,000 flight hours in just five years means these aircraft have flown an average of more than 83 hours a month. To pull those flight hours off takes a fine-tuned effort from the operator and our product support organization.”
Recent Feats Bring Aircraft's Total Records To 22
SAVANNAH, Ga., January 31, 2013 — Gulfstream Aerospace Corp.’s new best-in-class G280 aircraft recently set 15 new city-pair speed records as part of the company’s reliability demonstration program. The 250-hour internal testing program, among the most extensive voluntary reliability programs ever implemented by Gulfstream, served to enhance fleet reliability, enrich pilot training and improve customer readiness.
“The Gulfstream reliability demonstration program incorporates pilot check rides, maintenance on auxiliary power units, engine run qualifications, technical operations, publications validations and basic servicing and handling at typical fixed-base operators,” said Mark Burns, president, Product Support. “This is just one more way we are going above and beyond for our customers, ensuring they have the most reliable and high-performing aircraft.”
First Ultra-Large-Cabin, Ultra-Long-Range Jet Delivered To U.S. Customer
SAVANNAH, Ga., December 20, 2012 — Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. today delivered its first fully outfitted ultra-large-cabin, ultra-long-range Gulfstream G650 aircraft. The first aircraft was delivered to a U.S. customer. Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. is a wholly owned subsidiary of General Dynamics (NYSE:GD).
“We’re extremely proud of this aircraft and the work that’s been done by the G650 design, build and supplier teams,” said Larry Flynn, president, Gulfstream. “The first delivery of an aircraft is always an auspicious occasion and this one is especially so. This delivery represents the beginning of a new era in aircraft design and manufacturing in terms of quality, capabilities, reliability, parts availability and maintenance activities.
A U.S.-Based Manufacturer Receives First Fully Outfitted Super Mid-Sized Aircraft
SAVANNAH, Ga., November 14, 2012 — Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. announced today that it has delivered its first super mid-sized G280 aircraft. The fully outfitted business jet went to a U.S.-based manufacturer with a worldwide presence spanning 190 countries.
The best-in-class G280 aircraft earned type certificates from the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration and the Civil Aviation Authority of Israel on Aug. 30.
“Gulfstream is excited to deliver this aircraft to a dedicated customer who has worked so closely with us on the G280 program,” said Scott Neal, senior vice president, Sales and Marketing, Gulfstream. “In preparation for our first deliveries of this aircraft, we took a G280 to several fixed base operators around the United States, so their employees could familiarize themselves with the handling requirements for the G280. That was just one of several efforts intended to ensure a smooth entry-into-service for this aircraft.
Company Also Delivers 100th G150 To Customer, Announces Availability
Of Auto-Throttle System
ORLANDO, Fla., October 29, 2012— Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. is proud to announce a number of enhancements and accomplishments for its wide-cabin, high-speed G150 aircraft: four new city-pair speed records, the 100th customer delivery and the availability of an automatic throttle system.
The G150 set the four city-pair speed records in September, flying from Savannah to Barbados; Barbados to Cape Verde, Sal; Cape Verde to Libreville, Gabon; and Libreville to Cape Town, South Africa. The aircraft was on its way to the 2012 Africa Aerospace and Defence Show in Cape Town when it set the multiple records.

The much-anticipated super-midsize replacement for the G200 is, apparently, quite a little speed demon, recently setting speed records for four city pairs, two on its trip to EBACE in Geneva this past spring.
Slated to enter service by the end of the year, the G280 not only beats the performance of the older G200 it is to replace, it has routinely exceeded the performance capabilities it was expected to produce when the program was launched in 2008 as the G250. With such extensive flight testing, Gulfstream has been able to weave the data into a quick-and-easy Q&A app for its PlaneBook iPad application.
