Gulfstream Delivers First G600

Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. announced the first customer delivery of its all-new Gulfstream G600 aircraft.

The milestone comes approximately one month after the aircraft earned its US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) type and production certificates. A US customer took delivery of the aircraft at Gulfstream’s Savannah headquarters.

“We always strive to exceed our customers’ expectations, and our first G600 delivery is a prime example of that,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream. “The effort put forth by our team enabled this award-winning, technologically advanced aircraft to move from certified to delivered in an extremely short period of time. We are very proud of everyone who had a part in making this happen and keeping our promise to customers, as is a Gulfstream tradition, of a 2019 entry into service.

“The G600, with its outstanding performance, industry-leading innovative technology and stylish, comfortable cabin, continues the emergence of a new generation of Gulfstream aircraft that started with the G500TM in 2018. We have only just begun.”

The G600 received both FAA type and production certificates on June 28, 2019. The aircraft entered service after a design and test program that included flying nearly 100,000 hours in the company’s labs and more than 3,200 hours of flying in the air.

The G600 can carry passengers nonstop from Paris to Los Angeles or Hong Kong at an average speed of Mach 0.90 in an interior that won top honors in Private Jet Design at the 2018 International Yacht & Aviation Awards.

The aircraft is equipped with the revolutionary Symmetry Flight DeckTM, which includes active control sidesticks and 10 touchscreens. The advanced technology has earned Gulfstream several awards, including Aviation Week’s 2017 Technology Laureate Award, Business Intelligence Group’s 2019 Innovation Award and Avionics Magazine’s 2015 Technology Company of the Year.
