Gulfstream G150 Certified For Registration In China

Coordinated Effort Between FAA, CAAC, Israel Required For Certification To Happen

Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. has received type certificate validation (TCV) for its G150 aircraft from the Civil Aviation Administration of China, a move that allows operators to register the wide-cabin, high-speed business jet there. “This is reflective of the growing worldwide popularity of Gulfstream aircraft,” said Larry Flynn, senior vice president, Marketing and Sales, Gulfstream. “It also demonstrates our commitment to ensuring Gulfstream ownership continues to be a smooth and simple process, regardless of where the aircraft is registered. Getting type certificate validation from China makes an already attractive aircraft even more so.”

Gulfstream achieved the validation through close coordination with the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration, China’s CAAC and the Civil Aviation Administration of Israel, where the G150 airframe is built. “We’re pleased with the progress we’ve made and the cooperation we’ve experienced as we work with all of these regulatory agencies to the benefit of our international customers,” said Bill Whitton, vice president, Organizational Designation Authorization, Gulfstream.

The G150 can fly from Singapore to Beijing in 6 hours and 10 minutes, and travel nonstop from Hong Kong to Mumbai at Mach 0.75, Hong Kong to Delhi at Mach 0.80 and Beijing to Delhi at Mach 0.80. The mid-size jet also offers several options to improve safety, including an Enhanced Vision System (EVS) II, and a Wide Area Augmentation System-Localizer Performance with Vertical Guidance (WAAS-LPV).

In addition to China, the G150 has received type certification validation from the Ukraine, Israel, the United States, Chile, the European Union, the Philippines, Canada and Brazil.
