For more than five decades, Gulfstream has been an industry leader in providing new technology that helps pilots fly longer, faster and safer.
Gulfstream has redefined business aviation with a long history of product innovation.
Gulfstream was the first civilian aircraft manufacturer to earn Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certification for an enhanced vision system. Gulfstream was the first private aircraft manufacturer to offer synthetic vision and also was the first to develop and incorporate computer-based, in-flight maintenance review for aircraft.
With each innovation, Gulfstream enhances its newest aircraft but also extends those advancements to its earlier models, allowing those owners to keep the best of the past while embracing the future.
Available Product Enhancements
To truly deliver an elevated experience in aircraft today, the cabin must include the fastest and most reliable connectivity solutions. Gulfstream offers the industry’s first nose-to-tail data and communications program, with satellite-based networks powered by business aviation’s connectivity authority, Satcom Direct, and on-call technical support for easy troubleshooting.
Picture this approach: A large-cabin business jet is about to land during a rainy night at Portugal’s Madeira Airport―one of the most daunting runways in the world with jagged mountains on one side, ocean on the other and constantly shifting crosswinds in play.
The increased visibility from GAViS provides pilots better reference points, which improves pilots’ situational awareness and allows them to respond more effectively to changing flight conditions.
Trade bulky flight manuals for one slim, portable, easily updated, interactive tablet―that’s the advantage of PlaneBook, a software program created by Gulfstream pilots and technical writers.
Maintenance management and aircraft availability get an additional boost with the Gulfstream-created PlaneConnect program, an onboard, in-flight computer program that monitors aircraft systems and emails maintenance information to operators’ technicians.
The Gulfstream GIV and Gulfstream GV cockpits leap forward in avionics capability with a PlaneDeck retrofit, which replaces the original Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) primary flight displays with sharper, more vivid Liquid Crystal Display (LCD).
The world is not flat. So why should a pilot’s cockpit display only be two-dimensional? Seeing accurate terrain representation rather than a simple color-coded representation is a unique safety feature of the Gulfstream Synthetic Vision-Primary Flight Display (SV-PFD).
Air travel is safer and more cost-efficient with an enhanced navigation system known as Wide Area Augmentation System-Localizer Performance with Vertical Guidance (WAAS-LPV).
