In late January and after more than twelve years of production, Gulfstream Aerospace announced that it had delivered the last Gulfstream G450 even as the aircraft manufacturer prepares to inaugurate the next generation of the aircraft with the all-new Gulfstream G500.

“For more than a decade, the G450 has been one of the industry’s best-selling business jets. Appreciated by pilots and passengers for its technological advances, maneuverability, autonomy and unparalleled comfort have made it stand out above the rest,” said Mark Burns, President of Gulfstream, adding: “In its 30 years of history, the GIV series has transformed business aviation, and the G500 is already set to do the same.”

Entering service in 2005, the G450 fleet includes more than 360 aircraft, has accumulated more than 964,000 flight hours and has now completed more than 461,000 flights.
