This highly versatile aircraft (up to 20 passengers) has been acquired by many armed forces and governments around the world, and holds an impressive list of world records achieved in the 1990s. Gulfstream has derived this model in G IV-X which became G 400, then G 450 by increasing again the autonomy of the aircraft to 8000 km.
The cabin was lengthened by one meter to reach 13.70 meters.
Pilot’s advice: Competitor of the Falcon 900EX (the 900 does not allow the same distances) in more economic and with a wider cabin. True transatlantic, perfect for a NY – Paris with 10 passengers on board. Private jet very available for hire in Europe (England, Spain, Switzerland, Germany) and extremely popular in the United States (68 aircraft for 75% of the world fleet).
