More about the G500
The Gulfstream Corporation first unveiled the G500 on October 14, 2014, and the G500 first flew on May 18, 2015. The Gulfstream Corporation expects Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) type certification for the G500 in 2017 and plans on introduction the G500 into the market some time in 2018.

However, if the cabin is arranged to allow sleeping arrangements, the Gulfstream G500 will be capable of accommodating 8 passengers in this configuration. The cabin of the Gulfstream G500 will measure 41.6 feet in length, reach 6.3 feet in height, and stretch a maximum of 7.9 feet. This private business jet is planned to feature an expansive 1,715 cubic feet of baggage storage, capable of meeting all of your luggage needs. Fourteen large Gulfstream panoramic windows will surround the cabin, offering extraordinary views while providing ample natural light for a relaxing environment. The G500 will be capable of best in class cabin pressurization which, combined with its 100 percent fresh air system, will save passengers from feeling the effects of jet lag.

The Gulfstream G500 will come equipped with two Pratt & Whitney Canada PW814GA engines. Each engine is rated at 15,144 pounds of thrust at take off. With these engines, the G500 will require only 5,200 feet of runway to take off at sea level on a standard day. With four passengers, the Gulfstream G500 will need just 3,100 feet of runway to land at its maximum landing weight. This private business jet is expected to feature a maximum certificated service ceiling of 51,000 feet and an initial cruise altitude of 41,000 feet. This private business jet will feature a nonstop range of 5,000 nautical miles and a maximum operating Mach number of 0.95.
