Gulfstream Delivers 100th G600

Customer Demand for Storied Jet Remains Strong

Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation—builder of eminently-covetable market-leading business aircraft—announced on 15 February 2023 that the one-hundredth specimen of its iconic Gulfstream G600 business jet had been delivered to a North American customer following the aircraft’s outfitting at the company’s Dallas, Texas completions center.

Gulfstream president Mark Burns remarked: “The G600 continues to redefine excellence. Thanks to its highly customizable cabin, fuel-efficient design, and exceptional performance capabilities, we are seeing unwavering customer demand. The one-hundredth G600 customer delivery is a testament to that excellence and surging popularity.”

Contemporaneously possessed of brawn, brains, and style, the G600—by dint of its class-leading fuel-efficiency—is capable of traveling up to 6,600-nautical-miles at Mach 0.85, or 5,600-nautical-miles at Mach 0.90. The aircraft has set more than 35 global city pair records, including Washington, D.C., to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, in 11-hours and 40-minutes; Paris, France to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in 9-hours and 42-minutes; and London, U.K. to Seattle in 8-hours and 40-minutes.

The G600 is known also for its award-winning interior and seat designs. The aircraft’s cabin is extensively configurable, and can be laid out to include as many as four discrete living areas across which up to 19 passengers can be comfortably accommodated. The G600 features the Gulfstream Cabin Experience, an architecture conducive to whisper-quiet noise levels, a refreshingly low cabin altitude, one-hundred-percent fresh-air purified by a plasma ionization clean air system, and abundant natural light from no fewer than 14 of the panoramic, ovular, largest-in-industry windows for which Gulfstreams are renown, and by which the machines are so readily recognizable.

The one-hundredth G600 delivery follows the one-hundredth delivery of the model’s sister type, the Gulfstream G500—which went to its owner in the second half of 2022. Both aircraft are powered by type-specific iterations of Pratt & Whitney’s PW800 engine, a turbofan mill in the 10,000 to 20,000-pound-foot thrust class developed for the regional and business jet markets. The gear-less powerplant shares a common core with Pratt & Whitneys’ larger, geared PW1000G, by which Airbus’s A220 and A320neo aircraft families are motivated. A relatively new design, the PW800’s first variants were certified in February 2015 to power Gulfstream’s then new, now iconic G500/G600 business jets.
