 Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. announced that its all-new Gulfstream G500 business jet has begun a world tour to give current and potential customers an opportunity to experience firsthand the aircraft’s cutting-edge technology, unparalleled comfort and superior craftsmanship.

The 12-country tour began this month at Dallas Love Field and will conclude in June.

“This is a momentous year for the G500, with the aircraft’s planned certification and entry into service,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream. “It’s an ideal time for customers to explore an aircraft that is already noted for its large, wide cabin, outstanding performance and industry-leading technology. It also gives us an opportunity to thoroughly test and examine the fully outfitted interior as we prepare for the G500’s service entry.”

The G500’s cabin is optimized for comfort and productivity with its low sound levels, 100 percent fresh air, industry-leading altitude and 14 panoramic windows. Along with business aviation’s first active control sidesticks, the aircraft’s award-winning Symmetry Flight DeckTM includes 10 touch screens and incorporates a third-generation Gulfstream Enhanced Vision System, Synthetic Vision-Primary Flight Display and Head-Up Display II.

The aircraft can fly 5,200 nautical miles/9,630 kilometers at its long-range cruise speed of Mach 0.85, providing operators even greater mission flexibility over the aircraft’s original 5,000-nm/9,260-km range. At its high-speed cruise of Mach 0.90, the G500 has 4,400 nm/8,149 km of range, a 600-nm/1,111-km increase over its projected range of 3,800 nm/7,038 km. Five G500 aircraft are undergoing flight testing, with type certification anticipated in early 2018.

The G500 will stop in select cities, including Atlanta, New York, Chicago, Milan, Moscow, Beijing and Melbourne.
