  1. Gulfstream G650 Conducting Steep-Approach Trials At LCY
    Gulfstream is looking to add another accomplishment to the already well-decorated G650 model. The business jet airframer is presently engaged in conducting steep-approach trials for the G650 at the London City Airport (LCY). This airport is well known for its steep approach profile and many companies conduct trials there to help gain the related certification. Gulfstream G650, S/N6001 was responsible for conducting the trials.
  2. "S/N 6001 was at London City demonstrating its steep approach capabilities for the London City Airport Operations and Control Department," a spokeswoman at Gulfstream confirmed. "The airplane flew several takeoffs and landings, as required to obtain approval to operate at the British airport near the city’s financial district. Once approved, the G650 will be the fastest, largest, longest-range business jet to operate at the airport." LCY has a steep approach path of about 5.5 degrees.
