Gulfstream 100 SPX
A swept-wing development of the earlier Westwind (itself derived from the jet Commander, a US-design), the Astra business aircraft first flew on 19 March 1984, with deliveries beginning in June 1986. Astra Jet Corporation in the USA undertook marketing and support of the aircraft which has been produced at the rate of one per month since January 1988. The aircraft incorporates composite structure and a Sigma 2 aerofoil wing section. The rear-mounted turbofans are 3,650 lb st (16,23 kW) Garrett TFE731-3A-200Gs.

In 2001, Gulfstream acquired Galaxy Aerospace and with it, the mid-size Astra SPX and super mid-size Galaxy, which were later rebranded the G100 and G200, respectively.
In 2006, the 22-year production run of the G100 ended and the G150 entered service to take its place.
