First new-generation G500 delivered

News — 08.01.19 BY Jill Stockbridge

Gulfstream has delivered the first all-new Gulfstream G500 on time. The North American customer took delivery of the aircraft at Gulfstream’s Savannah headquarters, just shy of 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.” ~Mark Burns, President, Gulfstream

The G500 enters service with proof of both its performance capabilities and cabin comfort, from the award-winning Symmetry Flight Deck to Gulfstream’s newest seat designs. Each finely honed, thanks to the more than 5,000 hours flown by the G500 for company and FAA development, demonstration and certification testing. The G500 also established more than 20 new city-pair speed records during a high-speed world tour earlier this year.
