Amazing news for Gulfstream right before NBAA-BACE - European certification granted to Gulfstream G500TM! That means that the aircraft can be delivered to European customers and the way for European Union registration is cleared.​

“The G500 has been very well received in Europe,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream. “Customers in the region have been drawn to the unprecedented level of technology and innovation in the flight deck and the impact that has on safety and efficiency. In the cabin, they can see the effect technology has on the passenger experience with a rejuvenating environment, advanced ergonomics, award-winning seats, and unmatched comfort.”

Well before the G500 entered service in September 2018, the aircraft had already proven its maturity and capabilities with a score of city-pair speed records set across the world. That number has since risen to 35 and includes Seville, Spain, to Abu Dhabi in 5 hours and 45 minutes; Geneva to Chicago in 8 hours; Doha, Qatar, to Shannon, Ireland, in just over 7 hours and 30 minutes; and Farnborough, England, to Las Vegas in 10 hours and 20 minutes.

The G500 can travel 4,400 nautical miles/8,149 kilometers at Mach 0.90 and 5,200 nm/9,630 km at Mach 0.85. The seat collection available on the G500 was chosen for an International Yacht & Aviation Award for its advanced ergonomics and aesthetics that can be tailored to customers’ design preferences and mission requirements. In addition, the G500 cabin features customized furnishings, a healthy cabin environment and 14 Gulfstream panoramic oval windows.
