Private jet Gulfstream G500 was designed from clear sheet. G500 project was presented in 2014. First flight tests started in 2015. In 2018 FAA granted type certificate and deliveries started.
Gulfstream G500 was planned to be a private jet with most exquisite design and outstanding cruise speed. Now we can say that designers and engineers succeeded. G500 maximum speed is 0,925 Mach (that is 982 kilometers per hour) and cruise speed for maximum flight range is 0,85 Mach (902 kilometers per hour).
G500 replaces in Gulfstream model range G450 that was extremely popular for the last almost 40 years.
On-board of Gulfstream G500 you can see everything that you might expect to see on modern private jet: comfortable executive seats that can be easily converted to beds, Hi-Fi multimedia system with large screens, spacious lavatory room and baggage compartment, gallery with everything that might be needed for service of hot premium catering. During a whole flight low altitude environment is kept in passenger cabin.
Gulfstream G500 passenger cabin can be called one of the most stylish. When you order new G500 you can choose not only cabin color schemes, but also choose one of the five design styles: classic, multilayer, sports, minimalistic or ultra-modern. Classic style is what you expect to see inside a private jet and what is familiar to private jet passengers for many decades. In multilayer design there are additional touches and details that make classic interior look more modern. In sports design materials of contrast colors and textures are used, like on board of yacht or inside a sports car. Minimalistic design reminds of Silicon Valley headquarter offices. Ultra-modern design is a mixture of all the styles together.
Two Pratt & Whitney engines model PurePower PW814GA are installed on Gulfstream G500. G500 is the first Gulfstream private jet on which Rolls-Royce engines are not used. PW814GA engines were chosen because they show higher fuel efficiency, lower noise level and longer overhaul period of 10,000 flight hours.
Digital Intelligence-by-Wire™ flight system is used on Gulfstream G500. This system helps raise flight safety level and perform flights in a most steady and comfortable for passengers way. All flight data and system information are displayed on 4 main and 10 additional screens in cockpit.
