A 27-percent increase in orders to 121 aircraft last year, compared with orders for 95 aircraft in 2004, and a further expected increase in sales is prompting Gulfstream to increase production. The Savannah, Ga.-based OEM expects to deliver a record 111 business jets this year and 127 next year. Gulfstream delivered 78 green aircraft in 2004 versus 89 last year, the most deliveries since the record 101 in 2001.
