A fully outfitted Gulfstream G600 made its debut at NBAA-BACE in Las Vegas.

“The G600 cabin, like that of its sister ship, the Gulfstream G500, is the most functional, flexible and comfortable in business aviation,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream. “In the three years since our G600 cabin was on display at NBAA-BACE, we received considerable customer feedback and have incorporated many of those suggestions into our first production G600.”

Designed to seat up to 19 passengers, the G600 has the longest cabin in its class and can be configured for up to four living areas, including the option for a fixed bed. Divans that convert into beds are also available for those who want to take advantage of the G600’s long legs. At Mach 0.85, the aircraft can fly travellers 6,500 nautical miles/12,038 kilometres.

The G600 features industry-leading cabin sound levels, the lowest cabin altitude and 100 percent fresh air, which reduce fatigue and increase mental awareness. Its 14 panoramic windows let in an abundance of natural light while its flexible cabin allows for a high level of customization, including forward and aft lavatories and a full-size galley that can be located forward or aft.

The G600 at NBAA-BACE will continue to serve as the test-bed for the G600 cabin well into 2018. Gulfstream anticipates receiving G600 type certification from the Federal Aviation Administration in 2018 with customer deliveries slated for later that year.
