Globetrotting G500 To Join Class-Leading Gulfstream Fleet In Shanghai
Gulfstream Aerospace Corp.’s newest offerings, the Gulfstream G500 and Gulfstream G600, will join the Gulfstream fleet on display at China’s Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport next week for the Asian Business Aviation Conference & Exhibition (ABACE). The show will mark the G500’s 19th stop on a world tour showcasing its enhanced design and performance capabilities.
Joining the G500 and G600 on display April 17-19 will be the flagship Gulfstream G650ER, the high-performing Gulfstream G550 and the super mid-size Gulfstream G280.
“Asia is Gulfstream’s largest international market, and we are well-positioned in both fleet performance and significant product support investments to exceed customers’ demanding travel requirements,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream. “ABACE is the ideal opportunity for customers to tour the G500 and G600 and experience their unparalleled performance, quality, craftsmanship and design innovation.”
More than 330 Gulfstream aircraft are based in the Asia-Pacific region, 285 of them large-cabin. The fleet has more than doubled since 2010.
The G500 on display features a bright, natural and versatile three-living-area interior to accommodate 13 passengers.
The G500 recently entered the final stage of its flight-test program, with anticipated U.S. Federal Aviation Administration type certification this year. It is capable of flying 5,200 nautical miles/9,630 kilometers at Mach 0.85.
