Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. announced it has sold the last Gulfstream G150, marking the end of the mid-size aircraft's more than 10-year production run. The final G150 will be delivered to a customer in mid-2017.

“The G150 has had a distinguished history, spanning more than a decade,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream, “and it remains an important part of our business. Our product support organization will continue to provide industry-leading support to our G150 owners and ensure there are enough parts, tooling, sustaining engineering and personnel available to support the worldwide G150 fleet. Our Field and Airborne Support Teams (FAST) will still use two G150 aircraft to transport parts and technicians to our operators in the Americas and the Caribbean.”

The G150 entered service in August 2006. Its performance immediately put it at the top of the mid-size class of business jets.

The G150 entered service in August 2006 as a replacement for the G100. The new aircraft’s performance immediately put it at the top of the mid-size class of business jets. The versatile aircraft has the longest range at the fastest speed in its class.

Gulfstream’s fleet of nearly 120 G150s comprises operators in the U.S., Canada, Central America, South America, Europe and Asia. The G150 has a dispatch reliability rate of 99.83 percent and is certified in more than 45 countries, including the U.S., Brazil, Canada, China, England, Germany, Israel and Switzerland.

“Our long-range plan calls for us to focus on the super mid-size and large-cabin markets,” Burns said. “We have an excellent mid-cabin offering in the G280. Since it entered service in late 2012, we have delivered nearly 100 of those aircraft, demonstrating the appeal of incorporating large-cabin-type capabilities into a super mid-size aircraft.”

The final G150 will be delivered to a customer in mid-2017.
