Posted 24 October 2019 · Add Comment

Gulfstream Aerospace has delivered more than 25 Gulfstream G500 aircraft to customers just over a year after the aircraft entered service.

 

The aircraft’s first delivery to a Brazilian customer has also taken place.

“When the first all-new G500 was delivered last September, we knew customers were receiving a mature aircraft backed by Gulfstream’s record of delivering on its promises,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream. “Thanks to the research and development behind the G500, one of the most rigorous and robust flight-test regimens we’ve ever undertaken, and Gulfstream’s advanced manufacturing, we are getting these amazing aircraft to customers with proven performance capabilities.”

The G500 can fly 5,200 nm/9,630 km at Mach 0.85 and 4,400 nm/8,149 km at Mach 0.90. Its maximum operating speed is Mach 0.925. The G500 features Gulfstream’s Symmetry Flight Deck, with the first electronically linked active control sidesticks in civil aviation and the most extensive use of touch screens in business aviation. The G500 cabin environment includes 14 Gulfstream panoramic windows, whisper-quiet sound levels, 100 percent fresh air and a low cabin altitude.
