Gulfstream set to unveil new luxury-jet

There are several possibilities for the new aircraft at Gulfstream, which recently finished refreshing the middle of its product line-up with the G500 and G600.

Gulfstream is signalling that it will reveal a new aircraft design on 21 October 2019 at a private-jet conference in Las Vegas, reported Bloomberg.

In an invitation to the event, Gulfstream said, “History is made by those who dare, please join us for the biggest announcement in business aviation.”

The corporate-jet unit of General Dynamics Corporation is touting the event less than a year after its G650 was upstaged by Bombardier’s Global 7500 as the biggest and longest-range private plane. Gulfstream had held that crown since the G650 aircraft first flew in 2012.

The planemaker may offer a larger jet based on the existing G650 airframe, which would reduce the investment and time needed to bring the new model to market. Or the company could create a big new aircraft from scratch, known as a clean-sheet design.

Another possibility is filling a hole in the product line-up between Gulfstream’s smallest aircraft, the G280 and the G500 after the company stopped production of the G450 last year. There is even an outside chance that both a smaller jet and a larger model are announced at the event.
