Gulfstream delivers first EASA-certified G600
Gulfstream Aerospace delivered the first Gulfstream G600 certified by the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) to an undisclosed customer. In addition to EASA and U.S. Federal Aviation Administration certifications, the G600 also holds type certificate validations from the aviation agencies in Bermuda, Cayman Islands, Isle of Man, San Marino and Mexico.
“We are glad our customers in Europe can now register their G600 on the continent and easily experience the advanced technology and cabin comfort of the aircraft,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream.
After a recently announced range boost, its third, the G600 can now travel 6,600 nautical miles (12,223 kilometers) at its long-range cruise of Mach 0.85 and 5,600 nm (10,371 km) at its high-speed cruise of Mach 0.90.
The aircraft’s Symmetry Flight Deck features active control sidesticks, as well as what Gulfstream describes as the most extensive use of touch-screen technology in business aviation. The cabin of the G600 can be configured with up to four living areas and features 14 panoramic windows.
