Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. last week announced the all-new Gulfstream G600 earned both its type and production certificates from the FAA.
"The hard work by our team, including nearly 100,000 hours of ‘flying’ in our labs and more than 3,200 hours of flying in the air, shows our dedication to safety and our customers", said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream. The G600 flies 6,500 nautical miles/12,038 kilometers at its long-range cruise speed of Mach 0.85. At its high-speed cruise of Mach 0.90, the G600 travels 5,500 nm/10,186 km. The G600 features the Symmetry Flight Deck, which includes active control sidesticks and 10 touch screens, both industry firsts. Along with a cabin that can be configured for three living areas and a crew rest, the G600 has a low cabin altitude and 100 percent fresh air.
