“With every new customer delivery, operators around the world are experiencing the tremendous benefits of the G600,” says Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream. “The G600 dominates the sweet spot of range, speed, cabin comfort and fuel efficiency, and overwhelming market enthusiasm is exceeding even our own high expectations.”
Featuring a high fuel efficiency due to the design and aerodynamics of the wing combined with Pratt & Whitney 800 series engines. The wing design reduces drag and the engines provide significant improvements in environmental efficiency.
