Gulfstream Receives FAA Production Certificate For G650

Company’s New Flagship Aircraft Also Earns EASA Approval

Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. recently received two important certifications for its new flagship aircraft, the G650.  The company received the Production Certificate (PC) from the FAA Atlanta Manufacturing Inspection District Office, and also earned a Type Certificate for the airplane from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA).

The PC was obtained on December 20, 2012, and confirms that Gulfstream’s production processes for the G650 are in compliance with Federal Aviation Regulations Part 21.  The FAA issued the PC after Gulfstream completed an extensive FAA Production Certificate audit conducted by the Gulfstream Organization Designation Authorization (ODA) office, which examined Gulfstream’s engineering, supplier, manufacturing and quality systems to assure the aircraft are produced in accordance with their design.

The EASA Type Certificate was awarded on December 21, 2012.  By securing EASA certification, the G650 can be registered in the 27 member states that form the European Union. “This is quite an achievement for Gulfstream,” said Larry Flynn, president, Gulfstream.  “The G650 Production Certificate is a testament to the strength of four departments within Gulfstream — Engineering, Materials, Operations and Quality — along with the Gulfstream ODA to achieve this outcome. Their efforts and the support from the FAA are to be commended.”

“The EASA certification allows us to begin our first G650 deliveries to customers based in Europe,” Flynn added.  “We look forward to getting the G650 certified in many other countries.”

The G650 earned its FAA Type Certificate on Sept. 7, 2012.  The aircraft also has Type Certificate validations from Bermuda and the Isle of Man.
