“The G500 and G600 have been surpassing desires since they entered administration,” said Gulfstream president Mark Burns. “This most recent showed range increment gives additional evidence of the colossal productivity and adaptability of these airplane. The Gulfstream group is continually searching for occasions to improve airplane abilities and client experience, and we are satisfied to convey another presentation upgrade.”
