Real-time seat configurator to feature on Gulfstream’s EBACE exhibit


Customers will be able to view Gulfstream’s G280, G550, G650ER and the all-new G500 and G600 on static display at EBACE 2019, to be held in Geneva, Switzerland, on May 21-23, 2019. Meanwhile, highlights of the company’s exhibit will include a real-time seat configurator and a physical seat display where people can try out comfort and design options.

The exhibit will also include the G500 and G600 Symmetry Flight Deck experience, where guests can conduct a pilot-led simulated flight using the active control sidesticks and touchscreen technology.

“Backed by our growing customer support network, Gulfstream operators in Europe are assured of the comprehensive, world-renowned Gulfstream experience,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream. “Europe continues to be a strong market for Gulfstream, and we look forward to another successful EBACE.”

The newest aircraft in Gulfstream’s fleet, the clean-sheet G500 and G600, are equipped with the Symmetry Flight Deck. The G600 is capable of flying 6,500 nautical miles (12,038km) at Mach 0.85, while the G500 is able to fly 5,200 nautical miles (9,630km) at Mach 0.85.

Gulfstream’s flagship, the G650ER, has a range of 7,500 nautical miles (13,890km) at Mach 0.85, although the aircraft recently flew from Singapore to Tucson, Arizona – a distance of 8,379 nautical miles (15,518km) – in 15 hours and 23 minutes.

The G550 has a maximum range of 6,750 nautical miles (12,501km) and Gulfstream says it remains a popular choice for both commercial and special-mission applications. Meanwhile, the super-midsize G280 can fly 3,600 nautical miles (6,667km) at Mach 0.80.

“Our aircraft offer the industry’s best combination of range, speed and performance, as demonstrated by our fleet’s consistently growing number of city-pair records” said Burns. “Gulfstream aircraft continue to win awards, set records and redefine the capabilities of business jet aircraft.”
