BRIEF HISTORY OF THE GULFSTREAM G150
GULFSTREAM AEROSPACE G150 (2006-2017)
Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation, based in Savannah, Georgia, unveiled the G150 in September 2002 in collaboration with the Israel Aircraft Industries (IAI). The G150’s history and development began almost four decades prior in 1967 when IAI acquired the Jet Commander. In 1986, IAI released the first iteration of the later known G100, the Astra 1125, then Astra SP, and finally the Astra SPX. In 2001, General Dynamics, Gulfstream’s parent company, purchased Galaxy Aerospace who held the certificate for the Astra SPX. Gulfstream assumed control quickly and renamed it the Gulfstream G100. While the Gulfstream 100 (formerly Astra SPX) had the highest cruise speeds and longest range out of any Midsize jets at the time, it was the smallest cabin out of aircraft capable of non-stop, coast to coast travel. Because of this, Gulfstream designed the G150’s cabin to be 25% larger (+146 cu ft) than the G100’s. In May 2005, the G150 made its first flight. The G150 was then flown to Gulfstream’s Dallas manufacturing plant for completion. It entered service shortly after in August of 2006.
CABIN COMFORTS – GULFSTREAM G150
The G150’s almost oval-shaped cabin cross-section gave it the advantage over circular cross-section midsize aircraft. Gulfstream’s newest model features a fuselage with flat side walls and an arched top portion that is very distinct. Passengers in forward- and aft-facing chairs benefit from an extra two inches of headroom and a significant increase in shoulder space thanks to this design. Sitting on a side-facing divan increases the amount of available head and shoulder space even further. There will be fewer passengers on the G150’s divan who will have to lower their heads as they would on a circular-shaped midsize aircraft. The G150’s better cabin atmosphere is aided by a number of other improvements such as a lower cabin pressure as well as low cabin noise levels throughout the entire flight. More light enters the cabin of the newest Gulfstream thanks to the same windows used in the G200 that are wider, oval windows than the G100’s rectangular ones. Armrests have been redesigned to rotate to ensure movement throughout the cabin is as easy as possible.In addition to seven seats, with two sleeping positions available, the G150 has a number of TVs, baggage space, power outlets, a microwave, and a slew of other conveniences. Gulfstream G150 midsize aircraft offers a quiet, roomy and luxurious interior for your upcoming jet charter.
POWER AND PERFORMANCE – GULFSTREAM G150
Gulfstream went with Honeywell’s proven, rear-mounted TFE731-40R turbofan engines, each rated at 19.6kN. There is an anti-icing device built into the engine air intakes to achieve maximum efficiency. The G150’s class-leading speed is a result of the perfect pairing of strong engines with cutting-edge aerodynamic design. The G150 has broken speed records all around the country, compiling a strong argument for the leader of speed. The G150 soars above bad weather and commercial aviation traffic at speeds up to Mach 0.85 with a flying ceiling of 45,000 feet.At long-range cruising speed, it can transport four passengers up to 3,000 nautical miles. In this way, the G150 is able to travel across continents fast, easily, and non stop. With its superior range, speed, and altitude capabilities, it is the best aircraft in its class. Because of this, the G150’s popularity has continued to climb, and it has received several accolades, including prizes, records, and media attention.
FLIGHT DECK – GULFSTREAM G150
The G150 is outfitted with a Rockwell Collins Pro Line 21 avionics system. An EFD-4077 electronic flight information system from Rockwell Collins feeds data to the four 18.4cm display displays on the flight deck. Rockwell Collins FCC-4005 autopilot and a global positioning system are incorporated into the dual UNS-1C flying systems. ADC-850C air data systems, VIR-432 markers, DME-442 distance measuring equipment, an ADF-462 automatic direction finder, an ALT-55B radio altimeter, a terrain collision avoidance system TCAS-94, a Honeywell EGPWS electronic ground-proximity warning system, and a TWR-850 color weather radar are all included in the navigation systems.There are VHF-422C cockpit radios, RTU-4220 tuners and TDR-94D transponders, Baker B12135 audio sets, Magnastar flight telephones and HF 9000 radios, a Motorola NA-1335 Selcal selective calling unit, Artex ELT emergency locator transponder and a Universal CVR-30B cockpit voice recorder included in the communications suite. Enhanced Vision System II (EVS II) certification was granted by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in July 2009. New and existing G150 aircraft will be able to take use of the EVS II.
CHARTER A GULFSTREAM G150
When Gulfstream Aerospace purchased Galaxy Aerospace along with the certificate for the Astra SPX they were poised to welcome this G100 (formerly Astra SPX) to the family the only way Gulfstream knows, by increasing the cabin volume by 25% as well as updating it nose to tail for the 21st century. The G150 boasts an additional 2 inches in height as well as an additional foot in width and another 7 inches in length. With the update from the G100 to the G150, Gulfstream’s approach to any dispatch issues was head on. They took the top 20 most troublesome components or systems and redesigned it top to bottom. The dispatch rate of the G150 recorded an astonishing 99.8% making this the ideal aircraft for 6 passengers on a coast to coast flight.
