Gulfstream gets Type Certification for the G650

Having just obtained certification for the G280, Gulfstream has added another business jet to its inventory, the ultra-long range G650. Given the expense and complexity of developing and certifying an aircraft, the ability of Gulfstream to simultaneously do that for two different models is most impressive.

The Gulfstream G650 program suffered a tragic flight test accident during its development, with the loss of four test crewmembers, including this blogger’s former squadron commander, Lt Col Kent R. Crenshaw, USAF retired.
