Gulfstream G600 private jet finally available in Europe

Gulfstream G600 earned its EASA and it's ready to be delivered to customers in Europe.


At its near-supersonic high-speed cruise of Mach 0.90, the G600 has more than enough range to connect far-flung cities like New York and Dubai, London and Beijing, or Los Angeles and Shanghai nonstop. As an added bonus, fewer flight hours means longer periods between scheduled maintenance visits, higher potential aircraft value and fresher crews. Gulfstream invested in the technologies that give greater speed and power with reduced emissions.

The G600 climbs on the industry’s most advanced wings, each precisely contoured from a single piece of aluminum, and goes the distance on less fuel with ultraquiet Pratt and Whitney engines. Drawing on customer feedback, Gulfstream optimized the proportions for an ideal fit and eliminated pressure points using precise, computerized machining to angle and sculpt foam bolsters. Complete the picture with elegant accents and fine leathers and textiles.

The Symmetry Flight Deck features active control sidesticks that increase visual and tactile feedback between pilots. Ten touchscreen displays and Phase-of-Flight intelligence enhance operational efficiency and redundancy while providing intuitive access to essential information. Enhanced Flight Vision System (EFVS) allows authorized pilots to land without natural vision in low-visibility conditions, increasing access to airports and reducing go-arounds.

A Synthetic Vision-Primary Flight Display, featuring 3D graphics of terrain and runways, further boosts pilots’ situational awareness. A bit of tech specs: Maximum Range 12,038 km km, High-Speed Cruise 956 km/h, Takeoff Distance (SL, ISA, MTOW) 1,737 m, Initial Cruise Altitude 12,497 m, Maximum Cruise Altitude 15,545 m. If you are in search for a reliable private jet Gulfstream G600 should be on your list.
