Gulfstream delivers first G500
Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. announced it has delivered the first all-new Gulfstream G500.
The North American customer took delivery of the aircraft at Gulfstream’s Savannah headquarters, almost four years after the aircraft was announced in October 2014.
“We’re proud of the work we and our suppliers have done to deliver a technologically advanced, all-new, clean-sheet aircraft that exceeds our customers’ expectations and continues the longstanding Gulfstream tradition of excellence,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream.
The G500 received both Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) type and production certificates in July this year.
The G500 also established more than 20 new city-pair speed records during a high-speed world tour earlier this year.
