Another milestone for Gulfstream Aerospace - the delivery of its 50th Gulfstream G600 as the aircraft’s popularity continues to rise. The aircraft was delivered to a North America-based customer.“With every new customer delivery, operators around the world are experiencing the tremendous benefits of the G600,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream. “The G600 dominates the sweet spot of range, speed, cabin comfort and fuel-efficiency, and overwhelming market enthusiasm is exceeding even our own high expectations.”

The G600, which entered service in August 2019, features leading fuel-efficiency, a result of the advanced design and aerodynamics of the Gulfstream wing combined with Pratt & Whitney 800-series engines. The wing design greatly reduces drag, and the engines provide significant improvements in environmental efficiency. Nitrogen oxide emissions are 27% lower than the latest International Civil Aviation Organization Committee on Aviation Environmental Protection’s international requirements, and emissions for carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons and smoke are more than 75% better than international requirements.  

The G600 is also significantly quieter than the latest Stage 5 noise limits, greatly decreasing the impact the aircraft has on communities surrounding airports during takeoff and landing. Along with the Gulfstream G500, the G600 was the first aircraft, business or commercial, to be certified to Stage 5 noise standards.

The G600 can travel 6,600 nautical miles/12,223 kilometers at Mach 0.85 and 5,600 nm/10,371 km at Mach 0.90. To date, the aircraft has set more than 20 city-pair speed records around the world. In addition to the Federal Aviation Administration and the European Union Aviation Safety Agency, the G600 has earned certifications from the United Kingdom, Bermuda, the Cayman Islands, Isle of Man, Mexico, San Marino and Turkey.    

The award-winning G600 interior can be configured for up to three living areas and a crew compartment or four living areas, and features industry-leading low cabin sound levels, a low cabin altitude and 100% fresh air, all of which reduce fatigue and decrease the impacts of jet lag. The G600’s 14 panoramic oval windows let in an abundance of natural light.

The G600 is manufactured at the company’s worldwide headquarters in Savannah and completed by Gulfstream’s world-class interior outfitters in Savannah and at Gulfstream facilities in Dallas and Appleton, Wisconsin.
