  1. Second Testbed G600 Joins Test Campaign
    General Dynamics company Gulfstream has flown the second G600 testbed aircraft. It has now completed the first flight which lasted 4 hours and 26 minutes and signaled the official joining to the flight-test campaign. The first test G600 took to the skies only in mid-December 2016. Once everything keeps on track and goes to plan we expect to see certification from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) of the long-range G600 in 2018. Deliveries and entry into service of this aircraft are also expected the same year.
  2. “The addition of a second flight-test aircraft just 10 weeks after the first demonstrates the rigor and discipline inherent in our development programs and continues a cadence of accomplishments that will steadily move the G600 toward certification and entry into service,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream. “Each milestone we clear validates the significant investments we’ve made in research and development, our ground-based labs and our flight-test capabilities, allowing us to deliver on the promises we’ve made to our customers.”
