Gulfstream has sold the last G150, marking the end of the mid-size aircraft’s production run, which lasted more than a decade. The final G150 is scheduled for delivery in mid-2017.
“The G150 has had a distinguished history, spanning more than a decade, and it remains an important part of our business,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream. “Our product support organization will continue to provide industry-leading support to our G150 owners and ensure there are enough parts, tooling, sustaining engineering and personnel available to support the worldwide G150 fleet. Our Field and Airborne Support Teams will still use two G150 aircraft to transport parts and technicians to our operators in the Americas and the Caribbean.”
The G150 entered service in August 2006 as a replacement for the G100. There are nearly 120 G150s, owned by operators in the USA, Canada, Central America, South America, Europe and Asia. The aircraft is certified in more than 45 countries, including Brazil, Canada, China, Germany, Israel, Switzerland, the UK and the USA.
“Our long-range plan calls for us to focus on the super-mid-size and large-cabin markets,” said Burns. “We have an excellent mid-cabin offering in the G280. Since it entered service in late 2012, we have delivered nearly 100 of those aircraft, demonstrating the appeal of incorporating large-cabin-type capabilities into a super mid-size aircraft.”
