Gulfstream has completed the 100th customer delivery of the G500 and G600 programme. The 100th aircraft is a G500.

“We saw great demand for the all-new G500 and G600 right out of the gate,” says company president Mark Burns. “Once they entered service, interest in these innovative aircraft soared even more as operators experienced the compelling combination of the Symmetry flight deck and outstanding cabin comfort. Reaching 100 deliveries at this stage in the programme is remarkable and a clear reflection of the advantages the G500 and G600 give our customers.”

The G500 entered service in September 2018, with the G600 following in August 2019. Before the aircraft entered service, Gulfstream ensured the G500 and G600's maturity with exercises that went beyond the rigorous flight-test programme, including a high-speed G500 world tour spanning nearly 130,000 nm and achieving 22 city-pair speed records. To date, the G500 and G600 have achieved more than 60 speed records and a combined total of more than 25,000 hours and more than 13,000 landings.

The G500 and G600 ushered in Gulfstream's next-generation technology with the Symmetry flight deck, featuring the industry's only active control sidesticks, most extensive use of touch-screen technology and a data concentration network. The aircraft, which have earned numerous awards and accolades for seat and cabin design, include the Gulfstream cabin experience with 100 per cent fresh, never recirculated air, the industry's lowest cabin altitude, quiet sound levels and 14 panoramic windows.
