The two newest aircraft from Gulfstream Aerospace will make their Asia debut at the upcoming Singapore Airshow.

Both the G500 and G600 flight test aircraft will be in the Gulfstream static display from 6 to 11 February. These will be joined by the G650ER, G550 and G280 business jets.

Mark Burns, president of Gulfstream said: “Customers based in the Asia-Pacific region require aircraft that have the range, speed and payload capacity to travel easily between world business centres.”

“Each aircraft we’re showcasing in Singapore, including the G500 and G600, is at the top of its class. We’re excited to have the G500 and G600 in Asia, so customers can explore their exquisite interiors, unparalleled comfort and superior craftsmanship,” added Burns.
