Under a bright blue sky on September 29, Gulfstream Aerospace rolled out the first wide-cabin G650 under the power of its two Rolls-Royce BR725 engines before a crowd of about 7,000 people at the company’s Savannah, Ga. headquarters. The $64.5 million (2009 $) twinjet–dubbed T1, for test aircraft one–is currently undergoing ground tests and is scheduled to fly by year-end.

Gulfstream “held its own again in the third quarter” despite a planned five-week plant shutdown, Jay Johnson, the president and CEO of parent company General Dynamics, said yesterday during a third-quarter investor call. Due to the shutdown, Gulfstream delivered 14 green large-cabin jets in the quarter versus 24 a year ago; it also delivered only three green midsize jets in the three-month period compared with 16 last year.

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.

Gulfstream is not shy about the fact that the new wide-cabin G650 may be the first of a new jet family for the Savannah, Ga.-based aircraft manufacturer. In fact, Jay Johnson, president and CEO of Gulfstream parent General Dynamics, said as much at the Morgan Stanley Global Industrials Conference held early last month: “We are already working on product development beyond the G250 and G650–that’s not the end of the line.”
