GULFSTREAM ANNOUNCED on July 20, 2018, that its new G500 business jet had been awarded both type and production certification from the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

The company said that it is the first clean sheet Gulfstream design to be awarded both certificates on the same day and the achievements will pave the way for the first deliveries to customers later in 2018.

Type certification is the verification of the soundness of the G500’s design and the production certificate is acknowledgement that Gulfstream’s production processes meet FAA standards.
