Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. announced its all-new, clean-sheet Gulfstream G500 will be on display at the 2018 Russian Business Aviation Exhibition (RUBAE), Sept. 12-14, in Moscow. The G500’s RUBAE debut comes just after the aircraft earned its U.S. Federal Aviation Administration type and production certificates in July.

The G500 will join the high-demand Gulfstream G650ER and class-leading Gulfstream G280 at the event. The G650ER boasts proven, real-world performance capabilities reflected in the more than 70 speed records it shares with its sister ship, the Gulfstream G650. The super-mid-size G280 offers the technology of a large-cabin aircraft and the ability to operate in and out of challenging airports.

“Gulfstream has a considerable fleet in Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States,” said Scott Neal, senior vice president, Worldwide Sales, Gulfstream. “The G650 and G650ER continue to be tremendously successful in the region, and we look forward to complementing them with the G500. With the same high-speed capabilities and custom-tailored cabin comfort that the G650 and G650ER are known for, the G500 boasts its own class-leading customer benefits, including advanced technology in the flight deck and cabin, ultra-long range and design excellence.” 

The G500 is capable of linking Moscow with New York or Luanda, Angola, among other international destinations. It has demonstrated its high-speed performance by setting more than 25 submitted city-pair records, including Moscow to Hong Kong in 8 hours and 33 minutes and Jebel Ali, United Arab Emirates, to Geneva in 6 hours and 18 minutes.

The G500 and its sister ship, the G600, were announced in 2014 and are nearing customer deliveries. Gulfstream anticipates the G500 will enter service later this year, with customer deliveries in Russia in 2019. The G600 is progressing toward certification in the fourth quarter of 2018 and deliveries in 2019.
