  1. Planned Performance For Gulfstream G600; G500 Exceeded
    The Gulfstream G600 and G500 have exceeded the parameters outlined for them by Gulfstream initially. This is the news coming in as Gulfstream had an examples of the two aircraft at the recently concluded NBAA-BACE in Las Vegas. During rigorous flight testing, the all-new aircraft have exceeded expectations, regularly demonstrating capabilities beyond the company’s initial projections. As a result, Gulfstream is announcing new performance standards for both aircraft.
  2. Upon entry into service, the G600 will deliver 6,500 nautical miles/12,038 kilometers of range at Mach 0.85, 300 nm/556 km farther than the initially promised range of 6,200 nm/11,482 km. At its high-speed cruise of Mach 0.90, the aircraft will fly 5,100 nm/9,445 km, an increase of 300 nm/556 km over original projections. The G500 can fly 5,200 nm/9,630 km at its long-range cruise speed of Mach 0.85, providing operators even greater mission flexibility over the aircraft’s original 5,000-nm/9,260-km range. At its high-speed cruise of Mach 0.90, the G500 will offer 4,400 nm/8,149 km of range, a 600-nm/1,111-km increase over its projected range of 3,800 nm/7,038 km.
  3. “As we methodically moved through our concurrent flight-test programs, which are going exceptionally well, we recognized we had both the time and ability to enhance G500 and G600 performance and give our customers a business-jet family that’s better than the one we had promised them,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream. “Extracting more capabilities from our aircraft has become a Gulfstream hallmark, the result of creating and maintaining a culture committed to continuous improvement, listening to our customers and exceeding our promises.”
