Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. today announced it delivered the final commercial Gulfstream G550™ to an international customer on June 30, further increasing the worldwide fleet of more than 600 G550s already in service.
“For nearly two decades, the G550 has been exceeding customer expectations,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream. “The G550 set a new standard for performance and reliability and continues to outperform and impress with its wide-ranging capabilities. Given our vast G550 fleet in service, we look forward to continuing to support all G550 customers around the world with Gulfstream Customer Support’s extensive network.”
The award-winning G550 entered service in 2003 as the launch platform for the Gulfstream PlaneView™ flight deck. It was also certified with Enhanced Vision System — now known as Enhanced Flight Vision System (EFVS) — as a standard feature, leading the way for subsequent aircraft to incorporate the pilot safety tool in their array of offerings.
Today, Gulfstream’s fleet includes the super-midsize Gulfstream G280™, the award-winning Gulfstream G650™ and the high-performing Gulfstream G650ER™. An all-new aircraft family of clean-sheet designs are being manufactured and include the Gulfstream G500™, Gulfstream G600™ and their new flagship, the Gulfstream G700™, which the company claims delivers the most spacious, innovative and flexible cabin in the industry, plus all-new, high-thrust Rolls-Royce engines and a range of 7500nm.
