100th Aircraft Inducted Into Completion Phase
Gulfstream's G150 experienced two significant milestones recently: the fleet surpassed 100,000 flight hours and the 100th G150 rolled off the initial-phase production line, nearly six and a half years after the aircraft’s original entry-into-service.
When the G150 entered service in 2006, it was the first Gulfstream business jet to be certified by the FAA for Stage 4, the industry’s most stringent noise standards. All Gulfstream current production aircraft are Stage 4 compliant. The G150 is also certified to meet the steep approach landing criteria at London City Airport.
With 95 aircraft in service, the fleet has flown more than 100,000 flight hours and achieved more than 72,000 landings. In addition, the aircraft is certified in 11 countries and has accomplished 11 city-pair speed records, most recently Gander, Canada, to Geneva, Switzerland, in five hours and seven minutes.
Powered by two fuel-efficient Honeywell TFE731-40AR engines, the G150 has a range of 3,000 nautical miles.
