Overview

From 2003, Gulfstream discontinued production of the GV and moved on to the G500 and G550. The G500 is the baseline, reduced range version - a GV-SP. The prototype rolled out on 18 June, 2002 and it made its first flight on 18 July. A provisional type certificate was granted by the FAA on 11 December, 2002, followed by type certification on 8 December, 2003. JAA/EASA approval was awarded on 11 January, 2005. The first G500 delivery took place in May 2004.

The 19 passenger G550 was a fully spec’d version with more cabin volume and increased range. It was the launch platform for the PlaneView flight deck, and was also certified with an enhanced vision system as a standard safety feature. It made its initial public appearance at EBACE in May 2003, gained FAA certification on 14 August and the first delivery took place on 17 September. That year also saw the G550 development team awarded the Robert J Collier Trophy for technical and safety advances incorporated into the aircraft design.

FAA and EASA certification was granted on 9 March, 2004 and CIS certification was achieved in January 2006.

Gulfstream ceased production of the G550 in July 2021.
