Gulfstream G150 N116HW
Through the use of high thrust, fuel efficient Honeywell TFE731-40AR engines, combined with numerous aerodynamic improvements, the Gulfstream G150 is a fast mid-sized business aircraft. The G150 started breaking speed records even before it went into service. A G150 test aircraft established a city-pair speed record on a flight from Tel Aviv to Geneva.
On Jan. 18, 2005, the first G150 business jet rolled out of the Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) manufacturing facility at the Ben Gurion International Airport in Israel and successfully completed its first flight on May 3, 2005. The G150 received its Type Certificate from the Civil Aviation Administration of Israel and the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration on Nov. 7, 2005.
In 2006, the 22-year production run of the G100 ended and the G150 entered service to take its place. The G150 was the first business jet to be certified by the FAA for Stage 4, the industry’s most stringent noise standards.
In the first two years of service, the G150 has set 10 world city-pair speed records including New York to California, California to Hawaii, and from Aspen to New York.
Gulfstream's avionics is Rockwell Collins ProLine 21 avionics system, resulting in a fully integrated avionics system.
The G150 offers a choice of three seating configurations accommodating up to eight passengers. In the first two years of service, the G150 fleet boasts a 99.8 percent dispatch-reliability rate. The comprehensive warranty on the airplane covers its primary structures, engines, and all production components (APU, avionics, etc.) for five years.
The TFE731-40AR engines have a thrust of 4,420 pounds each for good performance from hot and high airports. These engines also meet the stringent Stage 4 noise regulations.
The G150 can reach a maximum operating speed of Mach 0.85 and climb in steps to a ceiling of 45,000 feet, well above commercial traffic and weather. At its long-range cruise speed of Mach 0.75, it can whisk four passengers some 2,950 nautical miles. At Mach 0.80, the G150 can fly four passengers 2,600 nautical miles in less than six hours. With this range and at this speed, Gulfstream's first true mid-size jet easily links New York with Los Angeles, London with Gander, Sao Paulo with Caracas and Cairo with Delhi.
