The Gulfstream G500 and G550 are business jet aircraft produced by General Dynamics’ Gulfstream Aerospace unit, located in Savannah, Georgia, USA. They are marketing names for the Gulfstream V-S . The G550’s quiet interior also improves the cabin experience. Advanced sound suppression techniques keep engine noise where it belongs―outside the aircraft.
The G550 also provides the option of locating the full-size galley forward or aft―the only aircraft in its class to offer such flexibility. Choices abound too for interior styling. Select from the softest, hand-tailored leathers, thousands of exquisite fabrics and dozens of unique wood finishes offered in Gulfstream’s design studios.
The Gulfstream G550 cockpit helped launch a safer, more sophisticated avionics platform that, years later, has become standard equipment for most business aircraft. Working with avionics partner Honeywell, Gulfstream in 2003 introduced the PlaneView cockpit, making it the most technologically advanced business jet flight system in existence. Since then, the flight deck has continued to evolve and improve, and by design, easily accepts software upgrades. PlaneView uses four liquid crystal displays to present essential flight data in larger, crisper images that make ever-changing flight conditions easier to analyze.
