  1. Gulfstream G500 With Finished Interior Debuts In Europe
    A Gulfstream G500 with a fully finished production interior has debuted in Europe with a visit to Paris. The Gulfstream G500 test aircraft made its European debut 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. Additionally, 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.
  2. “The G500 and its larger sibling, the Gulfstream G600, are perfectly suited for European customers thanks to their best-in-class speeds and cabin comforts,” said Scott Neal, senior vice president, Worldwide Sales, Gulfstream. “These are aircraft customers helped design, so we want them to see the results of their feedback and to showcase our commitment to delivering cutting-edge technology, outstanding performance and remarkable cabin design. 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.” Pending approval by the U.S. National Aeronautic Association, the records will be sent to the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale in Switzerland for recognition as world records.
