Gulfstream G500, the new jet, is creating waves in the aviation community, with its all-new features of speed, design, and performance. Every detail of the private jet is distinctly personalised and the comfy interiors have upped the luxury quotient par excellence. So, get ready to fly this 91-feet-long private jet featured with a maximum speed of 0.925 Mach, which is reportedly faster than an average commercial jet.

Gulfstream Aerospace Corp’s Interior and Industrial Design teams added a feather to its achievements when it recently won the 2018 International Yacht & Aviation Awards for the all-new Gulfstream G500 seat and cabin designs. The recognition highlights the creativity, high-quality, and customer-centric design focus.

G500 resounds of luxury, and this is also reflected in the cabin that is optimised for productivity and has low sound levels, 100% fresh air, and panoramic windows. Apart from which, its award-winning Symmetry Flight DeckTM includes 10 touch screens, Head-Up Display II, Gulfstream Enhanced Vision System, and Synthetic Vision-Primary Flight Display. The mainstay of the flight deck is Honeywell’s Primus Epic system, which can power four 14.1-inch LCD displays while incorporating a third-generation enhanced-vision system delivering four times better resolution than earlier versions.

The jet can fly at an altitude of 51,000 feet and house eight passengers, and three crew members on board, and go up to 5200 nautical miles. G500 has a wonderful blend of manoeuvrability, comfort, style, and speed. And, when it comes to comfort, fliers would love the interior cabin length of 41 feet 6 inches, and the 27-inch wide seat that comes with a footrest making it easy to recline. The fliers can also enjoy the cabin experience with exciting features like control lighting, window shades, temperature and entertainment with touch-screen devices.

G500 is all set to establish itself for its unparalleled reliability, unmatched speed, and performance. And, recently the jet had a record-setting run by linking Africa to South America in 8 hours and 13 minutes.
