Gulfstream heading to AERO Friedrichshafen, AeroExpo

Gulfstream is hitting the road in April, first to AERO Friedrichshafen and then to AeroExpo. While Gulfstream is bringing members of its award-winning fleet to the conventions in Germany and Mexico, its presence will be missed at EBACE in May. Gulfstream recently announced that the class-leading G500 will be showcased at AERO Friedrichshafen in Friedrichshafen, Germany from April 17 through 20. The G500 offers a top-of-the-line performance and is equipped with advanced safety features and an excellent combination of speed, wide-cabin comfort and efficiency. "Gulfstream is seeing strong demand and a growing fleet opportunity in Germany," Gulfstream Senior VP of Worldwide Sales Scott Neal said. "The fuel efficiency, safety advances and performance capabilities of our next-generation aircraft are ideal for operators in this region. We are excited to return to Friedrichshafen and we look forward to offering customers an opportunity to experience the award-winning G500 at AERO 2024." The G500 entered into service in September 2018 and introduced the award-winning Gulfstream Symmetry Flight Deck, featuring safety-enhancing technology along with the industry's first active control sidesticks and extensive use of touchscreen and Phase-of-Flight intelligence. The jet has been built for performance and outfitted with high-thrust engines and an aerodynamic wing, providing up to 33 percent greater fuel efficiency than previous-generation aircraft. The cabin can be configured with up to three living areas and includes the Gulfstream Cabin Experience, providing 100 percent fresh, never recirculated air, offering the lowest cabin altitude in its class, quiet sound levels and abundant natural light from the 14 Gulfstream panoramic oval windows. This next-gen aircraft has a maximum operating speed of Mach 0.85 or 4,500 nm at Mach 0.90. The plane can travel from Munich to New York at Mach 0.90 or Munich to Beijing at Mach 0.87. The G500 has more than 55 speed records and more than 125 are in service globally. On Tuesday Gulfstream shared that it was returning to AeroExpo with the award-winning G600 and super-midsize G280 on display. AeroExpo is taking place April 23-25 at Licenciado Adolfo López Mateos International Airport in Toluca, Mexico. "Gulfstream is committed to its customers in Latin America, where we are experiencing strong demand and a growing fleet," Neal said. "The long-range advantage of the G600 and the agile performance of the G280 are ideal for operators in this region, and we look forward to showcasing the extensive capabilities of each aircraft for customers at AeroExpo." The showstopping G600 is known for its long-range and high-speed cruise performance The jet can travel 6,600 nm at Mach 0.85 or 5,600 nm at Mach 0.90 and has over 35 city-pair speed records. The G600 can travel nonstop from Toluca to Rome at Mach 0.90 and recently completed the world's first trans-Atlantic flight using 100 percent SAF in both engines. The aircraft is outfitted with the Gulfstream Symmetry Flight Deck and over 130 are in service around the world. The G280 can fly 3,600 nm at Mach 0.80 and can connect Toluca to Vancouver, British Columbia and Toluca to La Paz, Bolivia at Mach 0.84. The super-midsize jet has proven steep approach and short-field performance capabilities and has unlocked access to some of the most challenger airports in the world. Gulfstream is continuing to invest in the G280 and develop new features to enhance the passenger experience and boost safety while streamlining the pilot workload. There are over 270 in service globally. Both the G600 and G280 provide exceptional passenger comfort with 100 percent fresh air, quiet sound levels, natural light and low cabin altitude. The G600 has been recognized for its award-winning seating and interior design and the latest G280 improvements include a lower cabin altitude to further reduce the strain on the body and leave passengers feeling more relaxed and refreshed when they arrive at their destination.RELATED STORIES:Bombardier, Gulfstream to skip EBACE displayGulfstream flies world's first trans-Atlantic flight on 100 percent SAF in G600 While Gulfstream will be making stops at AERO Friedrichshafen and AeroExpo in the coming weeks, the major jet manufacturer's presence will be missed at Europe's premier business aviation event, EBACE, in Geneva, Switzerland in May.
