Posted 6 February 2018 · Add Comment

Gulfstream Aerospace has said its all-new family of business jets, the Gulfstream G500 and G600, continue to make solid progress toward anticipated U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) type certification this year.

The G500 is entering the final stage of its flight test and certification programme, while the G600 recently completed company field performance testing.

“Both programmes remain on track and are methodically moving toward their respective type certifications,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream. “The five aircraft in each programme continue to exceed our expectations. Given the recent announcement about our range increases, this is pretty remarkable, even for Gulfstream.”
