Gulf Stream Overview
About the GulfStream Jet
The first Gulfstream G600 was delivered in 2019 and has a range of 6,600nm; it can accommodate up to 19 passengers. Both jets feature Gulfstream Symmetry Flight Deck avionics and are powered by two Pratt & Whitney 800-series engines.
The 19-passenger Gulfstream G650, meanwhile, is an all-new jet that flies 7,000nm at Mach 0.85 and 6,000nm at Mach 0.90, while the Gulfstream G650ER is a longer-range variant (7,500nm range at Mach 0.85 and 6,400nm at Mach 0.90).
Finally, in 2019 Gulfstream announced its latest and largest aircraft, the Gulfstream G700. This new, ultra-long-range aircraft will feature Rolls-Royce Pearl 700 engines, new Gulfstream winglets, and a large cabin with up to five living areas, while offering a range of 7,500nm. According to the manufacturer - “The G700™ delivers the most spacious, innovative and flexible cabin in the industry, plus all-new, high-thrust Rolls-Royce engines and the award-winning Symmetry Flight Deck™.”
Gulfstream Mid-Size Jets
General Dynamics acquired Gulfstream in the late 1990s, subsequently buying Galaxy Aerospace, who’s Astra SPX was renamed the Gulfstream G100 and its Galaxy aircraft became the Gulfstream G200 – both models being Mid-Size Jets. The G100 was eventually replaced by the Gulfstream G150 which has a bigger fuselage, upgraded avionics and higher MTOW.
Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI), previously co-owner of Galaxy, continues to manufacture aircraft for the Gulfstream brand, including the Gulfstream G280, a new 3,600nm long-range aircraft offering several improvements over the G200, including new Honeywell HTF7250G engines.
