United Arab Emirates-based charter operator Royal Jet last month received the first Gulfstream 300, a shorter-range, less expensive version of the G400 (the former GIV-SP). A second G300 is also destined this month for Royal Jet, which has outfitted the aircraft to perform two types of mission: one for executive charter and the other for aeromedical transport. Last month the G300 and G400 received JAA validation, enabling expedited certification and registration within 37 European nations. The equipment-laden, long-range (4,100 nm with eight passengers) G400 sells for about $33 million and the mid-range (3,600 nm with eight passengers) G300, which offers less standard equipment and fewer option packages, is priced at about $26 million.
