Gulfstream To Showcase Three Aircraft At Jetexpo In Moscow

Shane Nolan

September 12, 2010 - Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. will display three of its business jets at JetExpo 2010 in Moscow. They are the large-cabin, mid-range G200; the large-cabin, long-range G450; and the large-cabin, ultra-long-range G550.  

The aircraft will be available for viewing from Sept. 15-17 at the Vnukovo-3 Airport, Avia Business Terminal. In addition to the static display, Gulfstream will have an exhibit at the Crocus Expo International Exhibition Center, Pavilion 2, Hall 7. Gulfstream?s exhibit is No. A120. 

The first of the new generation of super mid-sized business jets, the G200 immediately captured public attention when it was introduced to the business-aviation market in 1999.


A decade later, the Gulfstream G200 large-cabin, mid-range business jet still boasts the longest range, the largest cabin and the best balanced overall capability and price in its category. Interior seating arrangements can accommodate 8 to 10 passengers. 

The Gulfstream G450 is not only the best large-cabin, long-range business jet in its class, it's also a direct descendent of the storied GIV-series aircraft, the best-selling business jet in the world. By the time production of the GIV-series ceased in 2002, Gulfstream had turned out over 500 of these world-class airplanes. Individual cabin designs will accommodate up to 16 passengers comfortably with berthing for six. 

The Gulfstream G550 large-cabin, ultra-long range business jet turned heads right from the start. Less than two weeks after it entered service, a G550 flew nonstop from Seoul, South Korea, to Orlando, Fla., covering the 7,301 nautical mile (13,521 km)  distance in 14.5 hours and setting a city pair record.  

In fact, it would go on to establish 40 city-pair records in its first five years of service. The cabin aboard the G550 combines productivity with exceptional comfort. It features up to four distinct living areas, three temperature zones, a choice of 12 floor plan configurations with seating for up to 18 passengers.


?Russia is an important part of our overall global strategy,? said Larry Flynn, senior vice president, Marketing and Sales, Gulfstream. ?With the continued growth of our fleet in the region, this represents an ideal opportunity for us to connect with current and potential customers, so they can learn firsthand about our aircraft?s tremendous capabilities and how they can handle the full range of mission requirements.? 

Several members of the company?s senior leadership team will be on hand for the air show, including Joe Lombardo, president, Gulfstream Aerospace; Mark Burns, president, Product Support; and Flynn. 

The executives will participate in a media briefing from 3-4 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 15, at Crocus Expo International Exhibition Center, Conference Hall E. During the briefing, Lombardo, Flynn and Burns will discuss the G250 and G650 programs, enhancements to the company?s global support network and other news. A question period will follow. 

Additionally, the company will conduct a regional Operators? Forum from 2-5 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 16. Such forums allow the company to provide updates and technical presentations on maintenance and operational subjects relevant to Gulfstream operators in Russia.
