Trust us when we say that this bird is bigger than any that you ate for Thanksgiving! You’re looking at a 2020 Gulfstream Aerospace G600 that just made its inaugural landing at East Hampton Airport and parking at Sound Aircraft Services.
This glorious jet has a maximum takeoff weight (MTOW) of 94,600lbs, stands 25’3 tall, boasts 6’1 by 7’7 cabin dimensions, and features a 94’2 wingspan. The maximum fuel capacity of 41,500lbs powers the two aft-mounted #prattandwhitney #PW815GA #turbofan engines that enable the plane to have a maximum range of 6,600 nautical miles and a maximum altitude of 51,000ft at a cruising speed of Mach 0.85; that is roughly the distance from East Hampton to New Delhi, India. As a new airplane, this #G600 is more fuel efficient than its older counterparts. The engines were designed by Pratt and Whitney with state-of-the-art designs that ensure high efficiency and exceed industry standards in fuel efficiency. For example, the Talon X Combustor significantly drops the unburned hydrocarbons and smoke emitted. Older Gulfstream aircraft without the Talon X, such as the #Gulfstream GIII, have visibly smokier emissions ― not to mention the #GIII series started in the 1970s when #aircraft overall were significantly less fuel efficient. Additionally, the ultra-sleek design of the G600 airframe and #winglets provide optimal aerodynamic performance, further improving aircraft fuel efficiency.
Safety is paramount at Gulfstream, so the G600 is equipped with Gulfstream Symmetry Flight Deck™ instruments that boost pilots’ situational awareness and aid in making the plane as safe as possible. After safety comes comfort; for the cabin, operators can choose from various textiles to optimize passenger comfort. A variety of living formats, 14 cabin windows, and 100% fresh cabin air ensure passengers arrive refreshed and alert, no matter the destination. This 2020 @gulfstreamaero #g600 is truly a unique aircraft with so many capabilities that ensure comfort, safety, and efficiency. Its statute and slick paint job give it a distinguishable presence at any ramp on which it parks, including at Sound Aircraft Services.
