Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. today announced the first customer delivery of its all-new Gulfstream G600™ aircraft. The milestone comes approximately one month after the aircraft earned its U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) type and production certificates. A U.S. customer took delivery of the aircraft at Gulfstream’s Savannah headquarters.
Kept promise to customers
“We always strive to exceed our customers’ expectations, and our first G600 delivery is a prime example of that,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream. “The effort put forth by our team enabled this award-winning, technologically advanced aircraft to move from certified to delivered in an extremely short period of time. We are very proud of everyone who had a part in making this happen and keeping our promise to customers, as is a Gulfstream tradition, of a 2019 entry into service. The G600, with its outstanding performance, industry-leading innovative technology and stylish, comfortable cabin, continues the emergence of a new generation of Gulfstream aircraft that started with the G500™ in 2018. We have only just begun.”
