Gulfstream’s more spacious rework of the Westwind-derived G100, the G150, received EASA certification last month. The airplane achieved FAA and Israeli certification in the fall of 2005. Gulfstream president Joseph Lombardo said, “The EASA certification is an extremely important accomplishment.” The year-and-a-half between U.S. and EASA certification was part of the plan, said a company spokesman. He explained that the manufacturer wanted to ensure it received the EASA ticket with no limitations or compulsory configuration changes, which it did. Gulfstream said that it has orders for six G150s from European customers. The six- to eight-passenger Honeywell TFE731-40-powered jet can fly almost 3,000 nm at Mach 0.75.
