The Gulfstream G500 is making its German air show debut this week at Aero Friedrichshafen. The clean-sheet aircraft entered service in September 2018.
The Gulfstream G500 introduced the business aviation industry to Gulfstream Aerospace’s Symmetry Flight Deck, which features active control sidesticks. The aircraft is certified to use enhanced vision to land and is certified to Stage 5 noise standards.
The G500 can be configured with up to three living areas. It features 100% fresh, never recirculated air, and abundant natural light from 14 panoramic oval windows. It is designed for a particularly low cabin altitude and sound levels. The aircraft can fly 5,300 nautical miles (9,816km) at Mach 0.85 and 4,500 nautical miles (8,334km) at Mach 0.90 and has a maximum operating speed of Mach 0.925.
“Germany continues to be an important market for us,” said Scott Neal, senior vice president, worldwide sales, Gulfstream. “We are making significant investments in this region with the help of regional vice president of sales Oliver Bergsch, who joined Gulfstream in 2022. We are thrilled to display the G500 at Aero 2023 this week and are looking forward to showcasing this award-winning aircraft for our customers.”
To better serve customers in the region, Gulfstream Customer Support added Gulfstream Field and Airborne Support Teams in Munich on 1 April, providing faster access to a local team of technicians who can address Gulfstream aircraft needs at any time.
