Description: Gulfstream GV, which was introduced in 1997, is the successor to GIV and GIV-SP family of business jet introduced by Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation in 1985 and 1993 respectively. Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation is a wholly owned subsidiary of General Dynamics. Twin-engine Gulfstream V was conceived to serve as an ultra-long-range business jet featuring the most sophisticated technology. In 2000 Gulfstream announced a further version with extended range called GV-SP which entered service in 2003 under G550 designation. G500 aircraft was introduced in 2004 as the follow-on to GV aircraft.

In 2001 Galaxy Aerospace Company was acquired by General Dynamics which added Galaxy Aerospace's Galaxy and Astra SPX business jets to the Gulfstream portfolio. Galaxy was re-designated as G200 and Astra SPX as G100. In 2002 Gulfstream launched G150 business jet to fill the gap between G100 and G200 capabilities. In 2003 Gulfstream announced that it was upgrading G300 and G400 business jets developed under GIV by adding technologies developed for GV and a new cockpit. The upgraded aircraft were re-designated G350 and G450 entering into service during 2005.

As of March 2008, Gulfstream GV family consists of eight models available at the production line with a common high speed performance and differences in terms of cabin and aircraft range. G100 offers mid-cabin; G150 wide-cabin; G200 and G350 large-cabin and mid-range; G450 large-cabin and long-range; G500 and G550 large-cabin and ultra-long-range; and G650 ultra large cabin and ultra long range corporate jet. They can cover routes ranging from 2,700 to more than 7,000 nautical miles, cruising at speeds between 0.75 and 0.9 Mach, and carrying between four and up to 18 passengers.

Gulfstream G450 is a long-range, large-cabin business jet based on the G400 jetliner. It is powered by two Rolls Royce upgraded Tay Mk 611-8C engines rated at 13,850-lb of thrust each. It can fly 4,350 nautical miles (8,000 km) at speeds of 0.88 Mach or cruising at 0.8 Mach at altitudes of 45,000-ft carrying 12 to 16 passengers. G450 features PlaneView cockpit and aerodynamic improvements over its predecessor. Other optional equipment available for G450 is next-generation Visual Guidance System, Honeywell Head-Up Display (HUD) and Gulfstream's Enhanced Vision System (EVS). In October 2016 Gulfstream announced that was going to end the production of the G450 aircraft in favor of the G500 model. The final G450 jet will be delivered in 2018.
