BRIEF HISTORY – GULFSTREAM G-IVSP
GULFSTREAM G-IV (1986-1992)GULFSTREAM G-IVSP (1992-2002)
Grumman in collaboration with Gulfstream began work on the G-IV in March of 1983 and slightly two years later it would record its first flight on September 19th, 1985. Once it received its certification from the FAA on April 22nd, 1987 and would enter service that year as well. The Gulfstream GIV-SP (SP standing for Special Performance) superseded the GIV in September 1992, with increased payload and landing weights and enhanced payload range performance. The Gulfstream GIV-SP began production in 1992 and made its first delivery in 1993. Production would cease on the G-IVSP in 2002 and later be redesigned as the G400 and a shorter range option designated the G300.The Gulfstream GIV-SP is vastly larger, more advanced, more efficient, and a longer range version of the older Gulfstream GII and GIII’s. The most notable upgrade to the GIV-SP over previous Gulfstream models is the addition of Rolls-Royce Tay engines, which improve fuel consumption and noise emissions significantly over the GII and GIII Spey engines which are well known in aviation for their noise levels. The fuselage was also expanded, the wing was strengthened aerodynamically and structurally, the fuel capacity and range were increased, the tail span was increased, and a sophisticated EFIS avionics suite with six color CRT screens was installed.

POWER AND PERFORMANCE – GULFSTREAM G-IVSP
The GIV-SP is powered by powerful Rolls-Royce Tay Mk 611-8 engines, which have proven to be so dependable and productive that Gulfstream has since utilized them in other business jet models, including the G300 and G400. These incredible engines provide a massive 13,850 pounds of thrust a piece, providing the GIV-SP with the necessary power for its 4,220 nautical mile intercontinental range. Furthermore, the engines are quieter and more fuel-efficient than its predecessors, adding to its impressive performance features.It has a maximum speed of 505 knots. The Gulfstream GIV-SP has a gross takeoff weight increase of 1,400 pounds over the Gulfstream GIV. As with the GIV, it is equipped with a Goodyear Aerospace brake-by-wire system and a Dowty fail-passive steer-by-wire system, which facilitates pilot maneuverability. Six cabin windows per side are provided by the expanded fuselage, and the redesigned wing weighs 870 pounds less while carrying over 1,000 gallons more fuel.
FLIGHT DECK – GULFSTREAM G-IVSP
The G-IVSP features modern avionics equipped with the reliable Honeywell SPZ-8000 avionics package offering numerous flight systems to assist the crew.
