Gulfstream G600 equipped with Thales Fly-By-Wire (FBW) system scheduled to complete first flight
Today at the NBAA show in Orlando (FL), Gulfstream announced its G600 business jet, equipped with Thales-designed and manufactured Flight Control Electronics (FCE), is set to soon complete its first flight, a major milestone in the development of the aircraft program.
The G600 is the newest ultralong-range aircraft and offers best-in-class comfort, fuel efficiency and superior range at high speed, with a cabin that can host up to 19 passengers.
Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation has also recently marked an important milestone with the delivery of its 200th G650/G650ER business jet. The clean-sheet fully-FBW aircraft are fitted with Thales’ Flight Control Electronics (FCE), part of the business jet’s highly redundant flight control architecture.
The G650/G650ER is the longest range business jet in the world. The G650ER’s 7,500 nautical mile range (13,890 kilometers) opens up more destination pairs than ever before.
