Jetport Takes Delivery Of Fourth Gulfstream G100

Additional G100 Helps Canadian Operator Keep Pace with Growing Business

Gulfstream Aerospace has delivered a mid-cabin, high-speed Gulfstream G100 to Jetport, a full-service business aviation service provider in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. This is the fourth G100 Jetport has purchased since the company was established in 1997. In addition to executive charter flights, Jetport offers maintenance, aircraft management and operates an Avnet fixed-base operation (FBO).

“We’re excited about adding another G100 to our charter fleet,” said Roger Adair, director of operations, Jetport. “As our charter business continues to expand, we must be ready to gear up quickly and have flights available on demand. The G100 is a high performer and one that we can rely on again and again.”

The last G100 will enter service this year, making way for the new wider-cabin, longer-range G150. The G150’s expanded fuselage provides a wider center aisle, roomier seats, more shoulder room when seated and more headroom when standing. With an extended range of 2,950 nautical miles, the G150 can transport passengers nonstop from Vancouver, British Columbia, to Miami, Fla.

“We, along with a few of our clients, have expressed interest in evaluating and demonstrating the G150,” Adair added.

“From first glance, I see that it not only outperforms the G100, it also offers a larger, more comfortable cabin as well as a new generation of avionics.”

Comparable to the PlaneView cockpit found in Gulfstream’s larger business jets, the G150 flight deck features Rockwell Collins Pro-Line 21 avionics, four large display screens and pilot and copilot side-wall-mounted cursor control devices as standard equipment.

More than two decades after the first G100 entered service, its dispatch reliability rate of 99.73 percent is one of the highest among Gulfstream’s fleet of business jets.
