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.

The Gulfstream G600 is a new generation wide-cabin business jet optimized for speed, cabin comfort and efficiency very similar to the G650 and G650ER aircraft family. The G600 can fly 6,200 nautical miles (11,400+ kilometers) at Mach 0.85 or 4,800 nm (8,800+ km) cruising at Mach 0.90 with a maximum operating speed of Mach 0.925. The cabin measures 91 inches (2.13 meters) wide and 74-in (1.88 m) tall carrying up to 19 passengers in four living areas with forward and aft lavatories as well as a full size galley. The aircraft feature an industry-leading cabin altitude of 4,850 ft/1,578 m at FL510 and 100 percent fresh air that boosts mental alertness and productivity while reducing fatigue. The new Symmetry flight deck features touchscreens and active control sidesticks as well as third-generation Gulfstream EVS, the Synthetic Vision-Primary Flight Display system and Head-Up Display II. The G600 is powered by two Pratt & Whitney Canada PW800 engines with excellent fuel efficiency, fewer emissions, engine noise and a 10,000-hour time between overhaul. The maiden flight is planned for 2016, type certification for 2018 and first deliveries are scheduled for 2019. Gulfstream introduced the G500 and G600 business jet family on October 14, 2014.
