Gulfstream Aerospace Corp., producer of the world’s most technologically advanced business-jet aircraft, will bring its full fleet, the G150, G280, G450, G550 and the flagship G650, to the 2014 European Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition (EBACE) in Geneva from May 20 through 22. EBACE is the only European event focused solely on the business aviation community, and Gulfstream is proud to showcase the benefits of its world-class aircraft at the annual event.
The large-cabin G450 will arrive in Geneva with a significant milestone on board—Gulfstream recently delivered the 300th G450, nine years after the aircraft entered service in May 2005. With the ability to accommodate 12 to 16 passengers, travel 4,350 nautical miles/8,056 kilometers with eight passengers and cruise at speeds up to Mach 0.88, the G450 can handle domestic and international flights with ease.
The G450 also offers the most comfortable and comprehensively equipped cabin in its class with three seating areas, a full-size galley and a large baggage area, which can be accessed in-flight. Its cabin environment is 100 percent fresh air, with a 6,000-foot/1,829-meter cabin altitude and quiet sound levels. Gulfstream’s signature oval windows allow for abundant natural light.
Gulfstream’s in-service European fleet has nearly doubled in the last six years, evidence of the growing demand for business aircraft. Large-cabin aircraft make up the majority of the European fleet, with more than 150 in service. With the G450 and its sister ship, the G550, Gulfstream has dominated the large- cabin market for the past decade. The range of the G450 allows the aircraft to fly such nonstop trips as Munich to Delhi or Berlin to New York. The G550 easily links Munich with Cape Town and Singapore and Berlin with Los Angeles and Tokyo.
Also at EBACE will be the company’s newest aircraft, the G650 and G280. Both offer best-in-class fuel efficiency and can quickly and efficiently link Europe with cities around the world. The ultra-long-range, ultra-high-speed G650 is the world standard in business aviation. It can fly faster, farther and more comfortably than any other business aircraft in its class. The super-mid-size G280 boasts the longest range at the fastest cruise speed in its class and has the ability to access some of the most difficult airports in the world.
For continental travel, the mid-size G150 provides the most value in its class and also provides some optimum city pairs itself—as a testament to its abilities, a G150 test aircraft set a city-pair record on a flight from Tel Aviv to Geneva.
As many business leaders know, success can be attributed to business aircraft, which saves one of the world’s most elusive assets, time. Gulfstream offers that advantage and more with its range of options and world-class performance.
