Overview

The Gulfstream G100 was originally known as the IAI Astra SPX, a twin engine business jet manufactured by Israel Aerospace Industries. The Astra had entered service in August 1994 and was renamed G100 in September 2002, after ownership of the type certificate was transferred to Gulfstream earlier that year.

The G100 had 4,250 lbf Honeywell TFE-731-40R-200G turbofan engines and was fitted with winglets.

In September 2002, Gulfstream announced the improved G150, based on the G100 but with a wider and longer cabin, a revised nose and uprated 4,400 lbf Honeywell TFE731-40AR engines. It was certified by the FAA in late 2005.

Production of the G100 was discontinued following certification of the G150. IAI continued to manufacture G150s in Israel and the completed airframes were then flown to the U.S. for interior outfitting.

In September 2016, Gulfstream announced the end of the 12 year production run, with delivery of the final aircraft in mid 2017.
