Gulfstream Introduces New Aircraft – ForbesLife
February 25, 2015
Gulfstream introduced a new family of business jets today: the Gulfstream G500 and G600.
Not only do the two planes optimize comfort (with a wider cabin) and speed (the maximum operating speed for both aircraft is Mach 0.925, the same speed as Gulfstream’s G650 and G650ER), but they come with a touchscreen cockpit display and industry-first active control sidesticks.
Gulfstream announced the launch of the new aircrafts before a crowd of approximately 3,000 people on Tuesday.
“This is another extraordinary day in the storied history of Gulfstream,” said Larry Flynn, Gulfstream’s president. “I could not be more pleased to announce the next generation of Gulfstream aircraft.”
