Just one week left till the annual Latin American Business Aviation Conference & Exhibition (LABACE) in São Paulo. So industry professionals are curious to discover what will be showcased on the static display this year. here are latest updates from Gulfsteam Aerospace - newly certified, award-winning Gulfstream G600TM; the high-speed, ultralong-range Gulfstream G650ERTM; and the record-setting super-midsize Gulfstream G280TM.

Gulfstream has approximately 230 aircraft based in Latin America. Nearly 70 percent are large-cabin models, including the G650ER, Gulfstream G650TM and Gulfstream G550TM. The region’s three largest operator bases are in Mexico, Brazil and Venezuela, with approximately 100, 40 and 25 aircraft, respectively. Gulfstream’s fleet in Latin America has grown 25 percent since 2014.

“The Gulfstream fleet in Latin America has grown dramatically since the first LABACE in 2003,” said Scott Neal, senior vice president, Worldwide Sales, Gulfstream. “This is an excellent forum for customers to explore aircraft, discuss their capabilities and connect with our Sales and Customer Support teams.

“We are particularly excited to have the G600 in São Paulo for the second straight year. The G600 is able to travel nonstop to the continental U.S. and Europe from major cities in Brazil, at speeds from Mach 0.85 to Mach 0.90, making it one of the best options for travel in the region.”

The G600 earned its type and production certificates from the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration on June 28, 2019, and is expected to enter service shortly. The aircraft has the most technologically advanced flight deck in business aviation and a long, comfortable cabin. Optional features include three living areas and a crew rest; a forward or aft galley; and a shower. The aircraft can seat up to 19 passengers. In 2018, the G600 interior won top honors in Private Jet Design at the International Yacht & Aviation Awards.

Gulfstream’s flagship, the four-living-area G650ER, has a range of 7,500 nautical miles/13,890 kilometers at its long-range cruise speed of Mach 0.85. Unlike any competitor, the G650ER provides more high-speed range utility with 6,400 nm/11,853 km at Mach 0.90.

The G280 can fly 3,600 nm/6,667 km at Mach 0.80. Departing from São Paulo, the G280 can fly anywhere in South America without refueling and can fly to the U.S. and Europe with one stop.
