Early first flight for the Gulfstream G600
Gulfstream completed the first flight of the G600 business jet ahead of schedule on the 17th of December 2016. The G600 is the latest business jet from Gulfstream and it prides itself if having the longest cabin of its class, satellite communications and internet, and a low cabin altitude. The aircraft is expected to enter service in 2018 and it is able to reach the same maximum airspeed as the flagship G650ER. As with the G500, Ultra supplies the G600 with three system controllers: the Landing Gear Control Unit (LGCU), the Steering Control Unit (SCU) and Electric Main Entry Door control unit (EMED).
