Gulfstream’s G500 and G600 each pass 100,000 hours
With more than 260 aircraft in service today, the G500 and G600 fleet holds more than 90 city-pair speed records combined.
Both the G500 and G600 have flown more than 100,000 flight hours each.

Gulfstream’s clean-sheet G500 and G600 aircraft have each surpassed 100,000 flight hours.

Powered by Pratt & Whitney Canada engines, both feature the Gulfstream Symmetry flight deck, with safety enhancing technology, including the industry’s first active control sidesticks and extensive use of touch-screen technology, along with Phase-of-Flight intelligence. Both aircraft are recognised for their industry-leading cabin comfort, seating and interior design, Gulfstream says.

“Our award-winning G500 and G600 continue to demonstrate impressive performance,” says president Mark Burns. “This achievement is a result of the strong demand and high flight activity we’re seeing from customers around the world. Having exceeded 100,000 flight hours further reiterates the durability and dependability of the G500 and G600.”

The G500 can fly 5,300nm/9,816km at Mach 0.85 or 4,500nm/8,334km at Mach 0.90, and the G600 can fly 6,600nm/12,223km at Mach 0.85 or 5,600nm/10,371km at Mach 0.90. Both aircraft have a maximum operating speed of Mach 0.925.

In May, the G600 received FAA certification for steep approach operations, just months after the G500 obtained it. This authorisation allows the fleet to access some of the world’s most challenging airports, giving operators even more convenience and flexibility.
