Gulfstream Introduces Apps for iPad

Gulfstream Aerospace has introduced product-specific mobile applications for each type currently in production. The apps for the Gulfstream G150, G280, G450, G550 and G650 are available now in the Apple App Store.

Each app features interactive elements, including an introduction to the aircraft in the form of an interactive brochure; an interactive worldwide city-pair range map; worldwide product support information; and an extensive photo gallery.

“This is a dynamic way for customers, operators and aviation enthusiasts to learn more about our fleet,” said Scott Neal, Gulfstream senior vice president for sales and marketing. “We’re excited to be able to offer them mobile, on-the-go information on our aircraft.”

Gulfstream already offers PlaneBook, an electronic document management system, for the iPad. The app provides pilots access to critical flight information and aircraft-specific documents such as the airplane flight manual, operating manual, pilot checklist and the quick-reference handbook. The electronic version of the QRH, which includes emergency flight procedures, serves as the master document that links to all other documents for easy cross-referencing. In addition, since documents and manuals are downloaded straight to their iPad, users will have offline access to all of their important information.
