Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation is an American manufacturer of private jets. Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation is part of General Dynamics since 2001.
The main plant is located at Gulfstream Aerospace Savannah in Georgia to the United States . Other plants are scattered across the United States as Appleton ( Wisconsin ), Brunswick (Georgia), Dallas ( Texas ), Las Vegas , Long Beach ( California ), Minneapolis ( Minnesota ), Washington DC ( District of Columbia ) , Westfield ( Massachusetts ), and West Palm Beach ( Florida ). Gulfstream has two plants outside the U.S., one in Luton in England and one in Mexicali , in Mexico .
Among the production units of Gulfstream, several are in partnership with GDAS ( General Dynamics Aviation Services ). These sites are: Dallas , Las Vegas , Minneapolis , Westfield and West Palm Beach .
The brand Gulfstream appeared in 1957 when the research department of the firm Grumman finalized the design of the Gulfstream I , the first production company designed specifically for the civilian market. This turboprop business aircraft first flew on 14 August 1958 and was a resounding success, prompting Grumman to develop a version equipped with turbojet engines, the Gulfstream II .
In 1967 , Grumman decided to separate its civilian and military production. Production and flight testing of the Gulfstream II , a hundred people, were then transferred to Savannah , in Georgia . End of 1968 the site of Savannah employs over 1000 people a . 200 Gulfstream I left the factory until 1969 and the 256 th and last Gulfstream II was delivered in 1977 1 .
In 1978, Grumman separated range Gulfstream, yielding to American Jet Industries , headed by Allen Paulson, the plant Savannah , but also the range of light aircraft Grumman American (in) . The complex was renamed Gulfstream American and under the leadership of Allen Paulson was launched the Gulfstream III (en) . The acquisition of the range Aero Commander at Rockwell completed the overall supply of Gulfstream, which ceased production aircraft equipped with piston engines in 1979 and became Gulfstream Aerospace in 1982. She then employed 2,500 people in Savannah .
In 1985 Chrysler , then undergoing diversification effort, took control of Gulfstream Aerospace, but in 1989 Allen Paulson, associated with Forstmann Little & Co., managed to buy the company for $ 825 million 2 . The Gulfstream V appeared in 1995 and two years later the Gulfstream IV-SP joined him in chains.
Gulfstream Aerospace in 2010 [ modify ]
In 1999 General Dynamics acquired Gulfstream Aerospace in Forstmann Little & Co. in 2001 and Galaxy Aerospace group at Israel Aircraft Industries (IAI). While production of G150 (in) and G200 (in) / G-250 (in) is located in Israel , Gulfstream announced the expansion of its plant in Savannah , where she plans to create 1,100 jobs by in 2013.
Gulfstream is now the largest industrial Savannah . It funds projects and contributes to some of the antenna of the Georgia Institute of Technology in Savannah , the Savannah Technical College (in) and the Savannah College of Art and Design .

General Dynamics , founded in 1952 , is a company design and manufacture of military aircraft working primarily on behalf of the government American . He is building the F-16 Fighting Falcon and F-111 Raven . In 2008, these aircraft are being developed by Lockheed Martin in 1993 which bought the company that creates these devices.
The origin of this company dates back to the John P. Holland Torpedo Boat (manufacturer ships torpedo), renamed Electric Boat Co. in 1899. After the Second World War , Electric Boat (specializing in building ships and submarines ) was without a command but with a huge cash flow . Its president sought a way to diversify.
After researching, John Jay Hopkins of Electric Boat President, found that Canadair (owned at the time by the Canadian government) was for sale. The transaction was concluded in 1946 for $ 10 million U.S. dollars.
After a deep restructuring , including production lines, Canadair renewed with profits and even gave his North Star aircraft (a licensed version of the DC-4 ) ahead of original schedule.
With the acquisition of Canadair aircraft production increased more sharply than production boats. John Jay Hopkins found that the name of Electic Boat could no longer represent the company. On 24 April 1952, the name was officially changed to General Dynamics.
Having always an enormous amount of cash flow , bought General Dynamics Convair in 1953.
Canadair was sold to the Canadian government in 1976.
Lockheed Martin bought General Dynamics in 1993.

Design and Development
The Gulfstream G650 was launched in May 2005 and internet unveiled March 13, 2008.
The G650 has a cruising speed of Mach 0.85 to 0.90, with a maximum speed of Mach 0.925 and has a range up to 7000 nm ( 13 000 km ). It will feature a full kitchen, bar and can be equipped with a variety of entertainment features including satellite phones and wireless Internet. The new jet will use the new engines Rolls-Royce BR725 produces a maximum thrust of 75.6 kN. Gulfstream says with a weight of less than 45 360 kg (100,000 pounds), he will be able to land at smaller airports to avoid the busiest airports around the world.
To ensure better use of interior space, Gulfstream designers rejected the fuselage of circular cross section in favor of an oval that uses a flat bottom. The cab shall be 2.60 meters wide and 1.96 meters hauteur.la The fuselage is built of metal and composite construction is used for the tail, winglets, rear pressure bulkhead, the bonnets, the cabin floor structure and many fairings. The sixteen cabin windows are oval in shape of 71 cm in width.
The wing uses a sweep angle of 36 degrees while the previous generation was 27 degrees on the G550 for example. The slats are fixed. The high lift system is composed of components and just guides components are integrated in the thickness of the profile. The leading edge of the wing has a curvature continuous evolution, and profile of the wing varies from the root to the winglets.
The flight controls of the aircraft are all electric with no mechanical connection. The control surfaces are controlled by two hydraulic systems. Many airliners use electronic flight controls, but only the Dassault Falcon 7X has one. The G650 retains the same configuration of the G550 cockpit to get a common qualification.
The wing design was completed in 2006. Models were tested in wind tunnels with a total of 1,400 hours of testing planned before the end of 2008. A fuselage was built to perform a pressure test and tested until ultimate test pressure of 12 915kg / m². The G650 rolled under its own power for the first time on September 26, 2009. Deployment of a public ceremony was later held on 29 September 2009.Premier flight for the G650 held November 25, 2009.
The test for maximum speed service was conducted May 4, 2010 which is Mach 0.925. Gulfstream reported that August 26, 2010, the G650 has reached its maximum speed of Mach 0.995 during a dive.
Incidents and accidents
April 2, 2011, the prototype No. 2 G650 crashed after takeoff from the International Air Center Roswell, New Mexico, killing all four people on board (two pilots and two test engineers, all of Gulfstream ). The plane simulated a failure on one of its engines, touched the runway and caught fire o

The Gulfstream G550 is an enhanced version of the GV SP. He arrived on the market in 2003 by bringing performance up. Its capacity is 6,750 nautical miles ( 12 501 km ), mainly due to aerodynamic improvements reducing drag. The Gulfstream 550 business jet is longer battery life with the world. This unit has a cockpit “Planeview” (that is to say, with four monitors Honeywell EFIS 21), an EVS (Enhanced Vision System), and an infrared camera that projects the image of the front view of a collimator head-high . The EVS allows the aircraft to land in visibility less time for other devices. This aircraft is different from Gulfstream-V by a seventh passenger window on both sides of the fuselage, and the exhaust valve square on the right side of the unit. On the Gulfstream V , this valve is round.
Its price is around $ 50 million, he is in possession of the famous actor Will Smith and a Russian billionaire named Valery Korotkov. The Navy has four G550 (known as C-37B) used for VIP transport.
The Gulfstream G550 is in direct competition with the Falcon 7X business, the Boeing Business Jet and the Bombardier Global Express .
The G500, a variant of Gulfstream V was launched in 2002 and certified by the FAA (Federal Aviation Authority) in 2003. It entered service in 2004. On autonoime lower than the G550, it shares the outward appearance, as well as the cockpit. However, the G500 does not have EVS as standard equipment, but offers the option. The capacity of fuel tanks is less than that of G550 , allowing only autonomy of 5800 miles.

Specifications of G500 The first twin-engine business
By 1944 Ted R. Smith was considering the market of the post-Civil War. He noticed noticed that airlines lacked flexibility and that businessmen were leaving or travel in remote locations of airports served by regular airlines. It would therefore be a market for private aviation offering the comfort and security that could be expected in commercial aviation. The firm Douglas , who employed as project manager, not interested in the concept, Ted Smith founded in December 1944 in Culver City , California , Aero Engineering Co . Assisted by 14 other employees of Douglas , he launched December 21, 1944 early studies.
In July 1946 an outline of future aircraft (relatively close to those of the DB-7 which he had led the development) were established and implementation of tools for the construction of a prototype began. Associates of Ted R. Smith was still employed at Douglas , this construction was accomplished on their own time and were paid in share capital of Aero Engineering Co . It will take 52,000 hours (of which 32 000 studies) and U $ 175 000 to realize the prototype Model L-3805 which made its first flight April 23, 1948. The performance of the device turned out as expected.
This first step accomplished, we had to find support industrial and financial support for mass production. Yet few people understood then the utility of such devices, which remained the market to create. Fortunately George Pew , engineer and pilot of Philadelphia , then the brothers Rufe and William Friends of Oklahoma City brought financial support necessary to conduct flight tests. Better, brothers Friends managed to get other people to Oklahoma City to invest in the project and certification CAA (6A1) could be obtained June 30, 1950. George Pew brothers and friends have decided to support the launch of production, the company was reorganized in September 1950. Become Aero Design and Engineering Company , she settled at Bethany , near Oklahoma City , in a warehouse of 2300 m² rented on Tulakes Airport (now Wiley Post Airport).
First Piston Aeroplane
The first Aero Commander 520 series left the assembly line August 25, 1951. It was his first flight two days later. The certification was obtained 6A1 January 30, 1952 and February 5, 1952 we recorded the first delivery, with delivery of No. 2 Chicago Tribune. 150 examples were built until 1954, then the Model 520 gave way to chains on Model 560 which 345 units were built. End of 1955 came the first Aero Commander 680 , supercharged version for a flight at higher altitudes which 700 units were built. In 1958 appeared the Model 500 , 560 economy version of which 789 copies will come out of the factory, and in 1962 the extended version Aero Commander 680FL Grand Commander . In 1955 the Aero Commander was considered quite on by the USAF for it to be retained for trips of President Dwight D. Eisenhower . The Air Force then ordered two Aero Commander 680 that were allocated to the requirements of the White House under the designation L-26C (and therefore sometimes received the code to Air Force One since 1953 attributed to all aircraft of the USAF aboard is the U.S. President). Beginning in 1958 came the Model 720 AltiCruiser , the first business jet pressurized world. Aero Design and Engineering Company in October 1960 became Commander Aero Inc. , a subsidiary of Rockwell Standard. Financial Capability Group Rockwell had a beneficial impact on the range: adoption of fuel injection, adoption of new engine nacelles, more streamlined. The new models are sold from a st March 1960: Aero Commander 500A , 500B , 560F and 680F .
In early 1960 the Aero Commander was a popular business jet performance but a bit limited and Lycoming GSO-480 did not have a great reputation for reliability. But Beech Aircraft had just put on the market the King Air propeller turbines equipped Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A. Aero Commander will react a little late in adapting the new turboshaft AirResearch Garrett TPE-331 on the Grand Commander , to implement the Model 680T Turbo Commander , who made his first flight in December 1964. Early 1965 Aero Commander Inc. turned in Aero Commander Division of Rockwell Standard Corp. to meet a need quick money to put into production the Turbo Commander , then qu’arrivaient on the market of new competitors: the new range of twin Cessna and the Piper Navajo . North American Aviation and Rockwell International in 1967 then merged to form North American Rockwell , and the Aero Commander Division turned into General Aviation Division of North American Rockwell .
Gulfstream and Rockwell Commander Jetprop
In 1973 North American Rockwell (directed by Willard Rockwell Sr ) and Rockwell Manufacturing Company (directed by Willard Rockwell Jr ) merged to form Rockwell International . With the death of Willard Rockwell Sr. (90 years!) in 1978 and the departure of his son, Willard Jr. the following year, Rockwell International about to separate quickly from any aeronautical activity, refocusing on its activities and supplies industrial automation . End of 1980 Rockwell International yielded to Gulfstream American ‘s General Aviation Division . In 1982 the United States were hit by the economic recession that struck the full force of the general aviation industry. After developing a final version of the twin-engine business, the Order Jetprop 1000 , ceased production of Gulfstream Twin Commander in 1985. The rights were then sold to Twin Commander Aircraft Corporation , who developed the program Renaissance Commander : The old appliances are dismantled, rebuilt first with many new elements. A lucrative market in the 1990s, the Aero Commander maintaining a beautiful coat of popularity. Twin Commander has also developed kits to repower older devices with TPE331-10 .
