Gulfstream G600 – Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation’s next aircraft to be certified – will make its Latin American debut as part of the company’s static display at the Latin American Business Aviation Conference & Exhibition (LABACE) in São Paulo, Brazil, from August 14-16 at Congonhas Airport.
More than 205 Gulfstream aircraft are based in Latin America, and nearly 70% are large-cabin models such as the G650ER, Gulfstream G650 and Gulfstream G550. Mexico, Brazil and Venezuela are the three largest Gulfstream operator bases within the region, with approximately 100, 45 and 25 aircraft respectively. The fleet in Brazil has grown nearly 10% since 2013.
Scott Neal, senior vice president, worldwide sales, at Gulfstream, commented, “We are very excited to have the G600 at LABACE for the first time. Much like our G550, which has been one of the best-selling long-range aircraft in the region for years, the G600 is ideally suited to the Brazilian and Latin American markets.
“Departing from major cities in Brazil, the G600 can reach the continental USA and Europe non-stop, at speeds from Mach 0.85 to Mach 0.90. It also is capable of reaching Africa and parts of the Middle East.
“Its customer benefits, including range, advanced technology, cabin flexibility and fuel efficiency, put it at the top of its class.”
The G600 cabin is among the longest in its class and provides an excellent canvas for interior personalization and customization. The G600 can seat up to 19 passengers in four living areas, with berthing for nine.
The galley can be located forward or aft, and a shower can be accommodated. The G600 on display at LABACE features a mirrored mid-cabin bulkhead and luxurious quilted seats.
