Thales to supply the Flight Controls for Gulfstream G800 and G400
Thales announces that it will supply flight control computers for the newest Gulfstream business jet aircraft, the Gulfstream G400 and Gulfstream G800. All...
The G500 and G600’s innovative Thales-designed flight control computers are at the core of their Fly-by-Wire (FBW) systems. They will use the latest design evolution architecture, specifically developed to ensure superior performance and safety whilst reducing weight and optimising volume and dispatch rate. The flight computers will also interface with active sidestick controllers, thus making the controls more pilot-friendly.
"After the success of our collaboration on the G650, being chosen by Gulfstream to provide flight control computers for the G500/G600 shows the maturity of Thales’ products, and our commitment to provide on-schedule, innovative, superior quality solutions that yield high value-added for our customers."
