  1. Updates For Gulfstream G500; G600 Programs
    Every now and then we at JF alert you to the progress of most in-development programs and the G500 and G600 test programs are no different. Since the last update these programs have continued to mature. At this point up until a few days ago, the Gulfstream G500 program amassed 3,460 flight hours or equal to around 905 flights. Since the G500 program was online before the G600 this particular program is much further along as expected. The G500 testing regime has five aircraft involved while the G600 has four to date.
  2. A fifth and final G600 test jet is expected to join the test team later this quarter which will be fitted out with a full production interior. The G600 test program is now approaching 800 test hours from 175 flights. While the G600 is expected to be certified next year, the G500 is anticipated to be certified in the fourth quarter of this year allowing for deliveries to start at the end of the year. The G500 has climbed to a maximum ceiling of 53,000 feet and flown 0.995 mach during testing.
