Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. announced the all-new, clean-sheet Gulfstream G500 and Gulfstream G600 will make their first appearance at the Middle East and North Africa Business Aviation Association (MEBAA) airshow Dec. 10-12 in Dubai. These all-new aircraft will join the Gulfstream fleet, including the super-midsize Gulfstream G280, the high-performing Gulfstream G550 and the flagship Gulfstream G650ER.

The G500 can link Dubai, United Arab Emirates, with Cape Town, South Africa, at Mach 0.90. The aircraft, which earned its type and production certificates from the Federal Aviation Administration in July, has now received validation of its type certificate from the Qatar Civil Aviation Authority, clearing the way for Gulfstream to deliver the aircraft to the country. The G500’s sister ship, the G600, is capable of connecting New York with Dubai at Mach 0.87, and the G650ER can connect Dubai to New York, São Paulo or Sydney at Mach 0.87.

“We are proud to showcase our latest aircraft, the G500 and G600, along with the full complement of the proven, reliable Gulfstream fleet at the MEBAA Show,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream. “We have been delivering aircraft to this region since the 1960s and value the commitment of our customers and their recognition of the benefits delivered by the evolving Gulfstream product line.”

The G500 entered service in September and has amassed nearly 30 city-pair speed records. The G600 is slated to enter service in 2019.

Gulfstream’s chalet will be located at A13/A14 at the MEBAA airshow site, Dubai World Central, in Jebel Ali.
