Gulfstream G600 nears end of function and reliability testing

Posted 20 May 2019 · Add Comment

Gulfstream Aerospace has said its all-new, award-winning Gulfstream G600 is nearing the end of function and reliability (F&R) testing, the final stage of flying required for aircraft type certification by the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

 

“Once we finish F&R testing, the only thing left is the FAA’s final paperwork review,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream. “Both certification and entry into service are just around the corner, so we’re excited to be close to delivering this high-performing, technologically advanced aircraft to customers.”

“The rigor and discipline of our new G600 development program is unmatched. Our unique program includes nearly 100,000 hours of flying in our research and development labs environment and more than 3,170 hours of flying in the air, producing reliable aircraft with an exceptional degree of maturity. That was our unique formula for success with the G500 and is for the G600 as well.”

The G600 completed certification tests for flight into known icing in March, with F&R testing beginning in May. During F&R testing, the G600 will demonstrate that the aircraft, including its components and systems, is reliable and functioning properly. The testing covers a range of flight conditions, including hot and cold temperatures; low and high humidity; day and night operations; low and high field operations; and varying weather.
