Gulfstream has announced today that it has delivered the first all-new Gulfstream G500, officially marking the arrival of a new generation of Gulfstream.
"We’re proud of the work we and our suppliers have done to deliver a technologically advanced, all-new, clean-sheet aircraft that exceeds our customers’ expectations and continues the longstanding Gulfstream tradition of excellence,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream.
The G500 received both Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) type and production certificates on July 20, 2018.
The G500 also established more than 20 new city-pair speed records during a high-speed world tour earlier this year. The tour, which covered 44 cities and 18 countries on six continents, demonstrated the G500’s reliability and maturity and showcased the cabin and flight deck to customers.
