Qatar Executive Agrees to Purchase Up to 30 Gulfstream Aircraft as Part of Memorandum of Understanding
May 19 15
Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. announced that Qatar Executive has agreed to purchase up to 30 Gulfstream aircraft as part of a Memorandum of Understanding originally announced in October of last year. The original sale called for Qatar Executive to purchase up to 20 Gulfstream aircraft, including the all-new Gulfstream G500. The recently signed final agreement increases the purchase to 30 firm orders and options that are a combination of both of Gulfstream's new clean-sheet, wide-cabin aircraft, the G500 and G600, and the G650ER. The G500 and G600's all-new design optimizes speed, wide-cabin comfort and efficiency, and features new safety technologies. The G500 can fly 5,000 nautical miles/9,260 kilometers at Mach 0.85 or 3,800 nm/7,038 km at Mach 0.90. The G600 is capable of traveling 6,200 nm/11,482 km at Mach 0.85 or 4,800 nm/8,890 km at Mach 0.90. The maximum operating speed for both aircraft is Mach 0.925, the same speed as Gulfstream's G650 and G650ER.
Gulfstream Aerospace Corp Completes Gulfstream G500 First Flight
May 18 15
Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. announced that the all-new Gulfstream G500 successfully completed its first flight. The G500 is part of Gulfstream's new family of clean-sheet aircraft, the G500 and G600, and the first of the two to begin flight tests. The G500 took off at 10:39 a.m.May 18 from Savannah-Hilton Head International Airport with Gulfstream experimental test pilots Scott Martin and Kevin Claffy at the controls. Flight Test engineer Bill Osborne provided on-board support. The aircraft climbed to an initial altitude of 10,500 feet/3,200 meters and reached a maximum altitude of 15,000 ft/4,572 m. During the 2-hour-and-16-minute flight, the crew exercised all primary flight control systems; evaluated handling qualities and takeoff and landing configurations; performed a simulated approach and go-around; and checked all systems using the Symmetry™ flight deck touch screen controllers. The aircraft achieved a maximum air speed of 194 knots. It landed back in Savannah at 12:55 p.m. local time. The G500 flight-test program consists of five aircraft, including a fully outfitted production aircraft that will allow the company to test all the interior elements and complete integration of the aircraft systems with the passenger experience. The G500 rolled out under its own power on Oct. 14, 2014, when Gulfstream also revealed a nearly 70-foot/21-meter mockup of the G600. The two new aircraft optimize speed, wide-cabin comfort and efficiency to offer customers best-in-class performance with advanced safety features. The G500 can fly 5,000 nautical miles/9,260 kilometers at Mach 0.85 or 3,800 nm/7,038 km at Mach 0.90. The maximum operating speed for the aircraft is Mach 0.925, the same maximum speed as Gulfstream's G650 and G650ER. The aircraft is powered by the new Pratt & Whitney Canada PW814GA engine, which delivers excellent fuel efficiency, fewer emissions and less engine noise. Pratt & Whitney Canada received certification of the PW800 series engine in February. The G500 and G600 also include Gulfstream's all-new Symmetry™ Flight Deck, the most advanced, stylish, comfortable and intuitive flight deck in business aviation. The cutting-edge technology comes in the form of active control sidesticks, integrated touch screen controllers, next-generation enhanced vision system, and Honeywell Primus Epic avionics. In addition to the revolutionary Symmetry Flight Deck, the G500 and G600 cabins maximize passenger comfort and aircraft performance and can carry up to 19 passengers. The optimized wide cabin also features cabin altitude of 4,850 ft/1,478 m at FL510 and 100% fresh air that boosts mental alertness and productivity while reducing fatigue. The G500 is expected to receive type certification from the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration and European Aviation Safety Agency in 2017. It is slated to enter service in 2018.
