Gulfstream G650 and G650ER have been certified for steep approach landing operations by the European Union Aviation Safety Administration (EASA), unlocking the ability for European operators of the ultralong-range aircraft to access even more airports around the world.

Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream, commented: “We are pleased to be able to increase flexibility for our G650 and G650ER European operators by giving them access to such airports as London City near the city’s financial district and even more remote airfields throughout Europe.The G650 family’s high-speed performance advantage paired with this new certification will expand opportunities for our customers with more options for remote destinations.”

The G650 family gained Federal Aviation Administration steep approach landing certification in 2019 after successful operations at airports like London City and Lugano. The aircraft demonstrated capability to perform a 5.5-degree approach and ability to operate on London City’s short runway — 4,327 feet/1,319 meters for landing. The EASA certification unlocks approaches up to 6 degrees.

There are more than 480 G650 and G650ER aircraft in service with a combined total of more than 120 city-pair speed records.
