Gulfstream Aerospace is world renowned for their creation of elegant private aircraft, combining military technology and reliability with luxury and impeccable service. This combination has created a highly-desirable and high-performing family of private jets, flying the most discerning private jet customers around the world.
So what makes Gulfstream Aerospace so popular?
Gulfstream Aerospace has some of the most iconic and sought-after private jets in the industry. For many, a “Gulfstream” is the Ferrari of the sky and many well-known A-list private jet owners and passengers are often seen flying on one, increasing its iconic status. Add to that the aircraft’s distinctive style (such as its oval windows) make Gulfstream, not only easy to spot, but also recognizable as a jet to own and charter.
RECORD-BREAKING FLAGSHIP JET
Gulfstream Aerospace has created a coveted and highly-desirable aircraft with their G650ER. Currently with a two year waiting list, the ultra-long range jet has grabbed headlines and broken several city pair records with its unrivaled power, speed and range. It’s the most advanced – and arguably, the most wanted – private jet in the world.
BIGGER IS BETTER
The increasing market demand for large cabin jets puts Gulfstream Aerospace in a strong position, dominating the very top of the market. The upper end of the market has seen stronger sales and profits in the recession and continuing into recovery, showing that for many customers “big is better”. Although Bombardier has the Global 7000 and Global 8000 being slower in development, it is waiting in the wings to make a stronger challenge.
LARGEST BUSINESS JET MANUFACTURER
Gulfstream Aerospace is now the world’s largest business jet manufacturer by revenuer at nearly $7 billion last year. The last quarter of 2014 saw its highest deliveries in three years, with profits being plowed into new product development to keep Gulfstream’s forward momentum going.
EXPANDING THE FAMILY FAST
Gulfstream has confidently forged ahead quickly with new aircraft development, seizing the high end and keeping their product line moving. The Gulfstream G500 and the G600 plans were unveiled last year, offering shorter range but at the same fast cruising speed as the G650ER, making Mach 0.85 normal. So customers can now fly like a G650, but for less distance and cost.
Within the private jet charter market, the Gulfstream family carries the same desirability. The G650ER has the same special appeal, but is still limited in availability – for now. But its family of other Gulfstreams, such as the G200, G450 and G550 (the GV) are all widely available and popular charter aircraft around the world.
