Gulfstream to Showcase Aircraft at EBACE 2012

Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. will show three of its business jets at the 12th annual European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (EBACE) in Geneva, May 14 through May 16.

The company’s static display at the Geneva International Airport will include the large-cabin, ultra-long-range Gulfstream G550; the large-cabin, long-range G450; and the wide-cabin, high-speed G150.

Additionally, Gulfstream will have a new 2,380-square-foot (221 square meters) exhibit (Booth 7061) at the Geneva Palexpo that will feature one-twentieth scale models of all aircraft, including the ultra-large-cabin, ultra-long-range G650 and the super mid-size G280.

Gulfstream senior leadership will provide a media briefing focused on aircraft certification programs, enhancements to the Gulfstream Product Support network and other updates. The briefing will be held from 10 to 10:45 a.m. on Sunday, May 13, in Palexpo, Hall 6, Meeting Room 1.

Additionally, the company will conduct an on-site Operators Conference on Tuesday, May 15, to offer updates and technical presentations on maintenance and operational subjects relevant to Gulfstream operators in Europe.

“Customers and potential customers will have an opportunity to see our aircraft firsthand and compare the reliability, safety and technological advances of the three Gulfstream aircraft on static display,” said Scott Neal, senior vice president, Sales and Marketing, Gulfstream.

The Gulfstream product line offers an exceptional combination of price, performance and value-added customer preferences in each segment of the mid-cabin to large-cabin business-jet market.

The G550 can fly up to 6,750 nautical miles (12,501 km) at Mach 0.80, a range and speed that will only be surpassed by the G650.

The G450 can whisk eight passengers and a crew of three up to 4,350 nautical miles (8,056 km) at a normal cruise speed of Mach 0.80. The aircraft on display at EBACE 2012 will feature the optional Elite Interior that Gulfstream introduced in 2011.

The G150 offers the best performance in its class with a range of 3,000 nautical miles (5,556 km). Available in three interior configurations, this aircraft comfortably accommodates six to eight passengers.
