When the G600 was first delivered to a customer in August 2019, Gulfstream projected that the long-range, large-cabin jet would hold its own at the fast end of the category. Since then, the model has earned more than 20 speed records between city pairs, the result of proving its Mach 0.90 capability.
Gulfstream announced it has now delivered 50 G600s worldwide, with number 50 going to a customer in North America.
“With every new customer delivery, operators around the world are experiencing the tremendous benefits of the G600,” said Mark Burns, president of Gulfstream. “The G600 dominates the sweet spot of range, speed, cabin comfort and fuel-efficiency, and overwhelming market enthusiasm is exceeding even our own high expectations.”
The G600 was designed to lead in fuel efficiency as well, and promote company initiatives towards sustainable aviation goals. The wing design reduces drag, while the twin Pratt & Whitney PW800-series engines lower overall environmental impact—including a 27 percent reduction in nitrogen oxide emissions.
The jet also shows an improvement of 75 percent against ICAO Committee on Aviation Environmental Protection standards, and emissions for carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons, and smoke. It’s also quieter than Stage 5 noise limits—the first aircraft certified to this level along with its sister ship, the G500.
In addition to FAA and EASA certifications, the G600 is approved in the United Kingdom, Bermuda, the Cayman Islands, Isle of Man, Mexico, San Marino and Turkey.
The G600 covers 5,600 nm at its top speed (Mach 0.90) and can range out to 6,600 nm at Mach 0.85.
