Gulfstream's G500 in-service fleet has already amassed nearly 2,000 flight hours around the world. “From the beginning of the G500 programme, we worked to design and deliver a mature, proven performer,” states president Mark Burns. “As the in-service G500 fleet grows and flies around the world, our customers are proving the aircraft can do everything we promised.”
The model entered service in September 2018, and already the 10 aircraft delivered by the end of 2018 have completed trips around the world, flying into and out of the US, Europe, the Pacific Islands, Africa, the Middle East and Asia. Early customers of the G500 are based in the US, Europe, Asia and the Middle East. Combined with the operations logged in flight tests, the G500 fleet has achieved more than 7,000 flight hours and 2,575 landings.
The G500’s performance capabilities include the ability to travel 4,400 nm at Mach 0.90 and 5,200 nm at Mach 0.85. The aircraft features the Symmetry Flight Deck and offers the signature Gulfstream Cabin Experience, with 14 panoramic windows, low cabin altitudes, a cabin designed to be the quietest in business aviation, high speed connectivity and Gulfstream’s bespoke interior design tailored to each customer’s wishes.
