Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation Announces Final Aircraft in the Gulfstream G600 Flight-Test Program
Aug 29 17
Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation announced that the final aircraft in the Gulfstream G600 flight-test program has flown for the first time. Outfitted with a complete interior, the aircraft serves as a cabin testbed to ensure a superior customer experience. The aircraft is the fifth to join the G600 flight-test program since it began on Dec. 17, 2016. The G600 took off from Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport at 3:07 p.m. During the 2-hour and 55-minute flight, the aircraft reached an elevation of 51,000 feet/15,545 meters at a speed of Mach 0.85. The aircraft landed back in Savannah atÂ 6:02 p.m. local time. Gulfstream will conduct repeated operations of all cabin systems to evaluate comfort, layout, noise, ergonomics, functionality, passenger interaction and appliance reliability.
Gulf Stream Announces European Debut of First Fully Outfitted Gulfstream G500 Test Aircraft
May 18 17
Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. has announced the European debut of its first fully outfitted Gulfstream G500 test aircraft by setting a city-pair record from Savannah to Paris. The aircraft flew between the two cities in 7 hours and 40 minutes, covering the 3,788-nautical-mile/7,015-kilometer distance at an average speed of Mach 0.90. In commemoration of the 90th anniversary of Charles Lindbergh's first nonstop solo trans-Atlantic flight on May 21, 1927, and to mark another milestone in the G500 flight-test program, the same G500 also achieved a flyover city-pair record between New York and Paris. The aircraft flew 3,166 nm/5,863 km at Mach 0.90, resulting in a 6-hour and 21-minute flight. The fact that the G500 is mature enough to complete trans-Atlantic city-pair records while simultaneously testing the outfitted cabin says a great deal about this aircraft's capabilities. Gulfstream's practice of embedding innovation with design is inherent in the G500. While the G500 was in the early stages of development, Gulfstream built an integration test facility to evaluate the flight deck and cabin interior in real-time flight scenarios on the ground. As a result, advancements made in the lab have been implemented on the outfitted test aircraft, giving the cabin thousands of hours of testing long before its first flight. In flight, the outfitted G500 will be used to assess the complete passenger experience for fit, flexibility, durability and comfort. As with all Gulfstream aircraft, each G500 cabin will be tailored to an individual customer's design preferences and mission requirements. Seating up to 19 passengers in three living areas, the G500 has forward and aft lavatories, a galley that can be situated forward or aft and signature Gulfstream panoramic windows.
