Gulfstream G600 begins FAA certification field performance testing


The G600, the longer-range version of the Gulfstream G500 business jet, has started US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certification field performance testing.

“We continue to make steady progress toward certifying the all-new G600 later this year and beginning customer deliveries in 2019,” said Mark Burns, president of Gulfstream.”

“With the exceptional performance we’re seeing from the five flight test aircraft in this program, I am highly confident our clients will be impressed with the aircraft we deliver.

“The recent type certification for the G500 is added motivation and inspiration for us to bring the G600 across the finish line and into the hands of our customers.”

The G600 obtained FAA certification for ice shapes and stall speeds testing and the five test aircraft have so far logged a grand total of 2,290 flight hours and more than 600 flights over the testing program.
