Gulfstream G500 Advances, On Track for 2017 Approval
Gulfstream Aerospace’s long-range, large-cabin G500 program continues to advance toward anticipated FAA certification next year.
The first production G500 first flew in early August, joining the four prototype airplanes already in the flight-test fleet. To date, the five G500s have logged 1,507 hours over 361 flights. Gulfstream also announced that production G500s will have 14 cabin windows, two more than the prototypes. (Photo: Gulfstream Aerospace)
