Gulfstream rolled out two new jets recently, the large-cabin flagship G650 on September 29 in Savannah, Ga., and the super-midsize G250 in Tel Aviv, Israel, on October 6. Both jets’ programs remain on schedule and they are expected to fly before year-end and achieve certification in 2011. The $64.5 million Mach 0.925 G650 is powered by two Rolls-Royce BR725 turbofans and is Gulfstream’s first clean-sheet new type certificate since the GII. The G250 will replace the G200 and also will receive a new type certificate as well as a new larger wing with more sweep and heated leading edges instead of deicer boots.
