This Day in Aviation History
November 28th, 1995
First flight of the Gulfstream V.
The Gulfstream V (or G-V or GV) is a business jet aircraft produced by Gulfstream Aerospace. It is also used by the US military under the designation C-37A. The G500 and G550 are improved versions which are currently[when?] in production. The Gulfstream G550 was formerly known as the Gulfstream V SP (G-V SP).
The Gulfstream V (also called the G-V) first flew in 1995, was certified in 1997, and was one of the first “ultra-long range” (~6,000-nautical-mile (11,000 km)) business aircraft. Capable of carrying up to 16 people in standard seating configurations, and able to fly up to 6,500 nmi (12,000 km), the GV became the longest range business jet ever made (at the time of its introduction). Total production of the Gulfstream V was 191 aircraft….
