Third G600 makes maiden flight


A third G600 has joined the platform’s flight test program. The aircraft made its maiden flight on May 5, flying for 4 hours and 35 minutes.

“The consistent execution of the G600 flight test program is directly correlated to our investments in research and development and is a testament to the rigor and discipline of our processes,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream. “We take great pride in ensuring we deliver on our promises and look forward to our G600 entering service next year.”

Gulfstream expects FAA certification in 2018. The aircraft will be used for system tests including field performance testing to assess handling in multiple runway configurations.

The first G600 test aircraft made its first flight on December 17, 2016, and was followed by the second on February 24, 2017.
