Fully outfitted G600 takes the stage at BACE 17
Gulfstream is debuting a fully outfitted Gulfstream G600 at this week’s NBAA convention in Las Vegas, NV. The company unveiled the cabin during a dedicated ceremony on the Henderson Executive static display.
“The G600 cabin, like that of its sister ship, the Gulfstream G500, is the most functional, flexible and comfortable in business aviation,” commented Gulfstream President Mark Burns. “In the three years since our G600 cabin was on display at NBAA-BACE, we received considerable customer feedback and have incorporated many of those suggestions into our first production G600.”
The same aircraft took to the skies for the first time at the end of Augustus.

According to a company statement, the G600 has the longest cabin in its class and can be configured for up to four living areas, including the option for a fixed bed. Divans that convert into beds are also available for those who want to take advantage of the G600’s long legs.
Furthermore, the G600’s cabin allows for a high level of customization. The aircraft has forward and aft lavatories and a full-size galley that can be located forward or aft. The galley features an optional steam oven, an interchangeable beverage maker and a refrigerator that can be positioned above or below the counter. Flooring options, including stone, can be chosen for the entry, vestibule, galley and lavatories.
The G600 is designed to seat up to 19 passengers. At Mach 0.85, the aircraft can fly travelers 6,500 nm. Currently on the static display, the fully outfitted G600 will continue to serve as the testbed for the G600 cabin well into 2018. Gulfstream anticipates receiving G600 type certification from the FAA in 2018 with customer deliveries slated for later that year.
