FAA Certifies Gulfstream G600

, and | Business & Commercial Aviation

In late June, Gulfstream’s G600 received its type and production certificates from the FAA, clearing the way for first deliveries to begin this year. “Getting both authorizations on the same day is evidence of the maturity of our G600 production processes and speaks to the safety and reliability of the aircraft’s design,” said Gulfstream President Mark Burns, who went on to note that the FAA award came less than a year after similar dual certifications were bestowed simultaneously upon the all-new G500. The G600 performance specifications include a 6,500-nm range at Mach 0.85 cruise, or 5,500 nm at Mach 0.90. The new model features a Symmetry Flight Deck, including active control sidesticks and 10 touchscreens. The aircraft can be configured with three living areas in the passenger cabin, plus a crew rest area forward.
