BRIEF HISTORY OF THE GULFSTREAM G100
GULFSTREAM AEROSPACE G100 (2002-2006)
A subsidiary of Israel Aircraft Industries (IAI), Galaxy Aerospace Corp. designed, developed, and manufactured the Model 1124 Westwind business jet. Based off of its success it released a variant of the Westwind, marketed as the Astra. On March 20th 1985, the first production Astra flew, followed by FAA certification on August 29th, 1985 and delivered the first Astra to its client in 1986. Two more variants would be released in 1989 with the Astra SP and the Astra SPX in August of 1994.General Dynamics bought Gulfstream Aerospace in 1999 and in 2001 would go on to acquire Galaxy Aerospace Company from Israel Aerospace Industries Ltd (IAI). Included in the sale was their type certificate. Gulfstream Aerospace would assume control of Galaxy Aerospace while Israel Aircraft Industries (IAI) would continue to manufacture the aircraft and once completed, send the aircraft from Tel Aviv, Israel to Gulfstream’s facility in Dallas, TX to outfit the interior.In 2002, Gulfstream renamed the Astra SPX to the G100. Shortly after in the same year, Gulfstream announced it would be releasing a larger, more advanced version of the newly acquired G100, with the Gulfstream G150. Production of the G100 would stop in 2006 shortly after the G150 was certified. Only 22 G100 were ever produced.
CABIN COMFORTS – GULFSTREAM G100
As you enter the G100 you will notice how open and spacious it is thanks to its cabin height of almost 5’7” and a width of 4’9” and 17’1” long. The G100’s interior is typically arranged to seat seven people. The G100 is equipped with power outlets, a fully enclosed lavatory with a solid door, and a convenient galley. There is a small storage closet in the cabin of 9 cubic feet, usually reserved for the crew’s items. If an additional fuel tank is added to the G100, this private jet has only 42 cubic feet of exterior baggage capacity, which can hold up to 370 pounds of luggage. This storage capacity grows to 55 cubic feet in the absence of this additional gas tank. The G100’s maximum cabin pressure difference of 8.8 psi enables it to maintain cabin conditions at sea level at a height of 23,000 feet.
POWER AND PERFORMANCE – GULFSTREAM G100
The G100 is powered by two Honeywell TFE731-40R-200F turbofan engines fitted with FADEC (Full Authority Digital Engine Control). Each engine has a maximum thrust output of 4,250 pounds at sea level. The cabin noise levels remain impressively low on takeoff, under 90 EPNdB. On a typical day, the G100 requires 5,395 feet of runway to take off at sea level. This take-off distance climbs to 8,700 feet at a 5,000-foot elevation and a temperature of 25 degrees Celsius (77 degrees Fahrenheit). The G100 requires just 4,362 feet of runway to land with four people on board. This private jet has a maximum certified ceiling of 45,000 feet and is capable of rocketing it up to an altitude of 37,000 feet in just sixteen minutes.The G100’s range is impressively 2,910 nautical miles, effortlessly flying non-stop from Boeing Field in Seattle, WA (KBFI) to Westchester County in White Plains, NY (KHPN). For your longer journeys, the G100 can cruise at 430 knots at 43,000 feet with a fuel flow rate of 1,144 gallons per hour in a long-range cruise mode. The G100 can cruise at 470 knots at 41,000 feet with a fuel flow rate of 1,432 gallons per hour in a long-range cruising mode.
FLIGHT DECK – GULFSTREAM G100
The G100 is equipped with a Collins Pro Line 4 avionics suite. It consists of four 7.25 by 7.25-inch liquid crystal screens strategically arranged in a T configuration. To maximize efficiency, systems are organized by function, with display screens located adjacent to the operations they regulate. A Collins TWR-850 Doppler weather radar, an Allied Signal GNS-XES Flight Management System (FMS), and a dual-channel Integrated Avionics Processor System are among the avionics equipment included in this package (IAPS).
