Gulfstream has delivered the first Gulfstream G600 certified by the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) to an undisclosed customer based in Europe, further expanding the next-generation fleet around the world. “We are glad our customers in Europe can now register their G600 on the continent and easily experience the advanced technology and cabin comfort of the aircraft,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream. “Pilots have told us the Symmetry Flight Deck is a joy to fly, and customers are reaping the benefits of the award-winning Gulfstream cabin, with its advanced ergonomics, flexibility and health benefits. With the latest range increase—the third for the G600—customers in Europe and around the world will get even more out of their aircraft.”

After a recently announced range boost, the G600 can now travel 6,600 nautical miles/12,223 kilometers at its long-range cruise of Mach 0.85 and 5,600 nm/10,371 km at its high-speed cruise of Mach 0.90. Its Symmetry Flight Deck features active control sidesticks, the most extensive use of touch-screen technology in business aviation and a Data Concentration Network, all of which streamline operations and reduce pilot workload.

Gulfstream has earned awards for the G600’s interior design as well as the seat designs that debuted on the aircraft. The cabin can be configured with up to four living areas, features 14 Gulfstream panoramic windows and offers the Gulfstream Cabin Experience of 100% fresh, never recirculated air, industry-leading low cabin altitudes and whisper-quiet sound levels.  

In addition to EASA and the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration certifications, the G600 also holds type certificate validations from the aviation agencies in Bermuda, Cayman Islands, Isle of Man, San Marino and Mexico.
