Gulfstream acquired Galaxy Aerospace and with it came two distinct airframes, one being the G200. The G200 is a super-midsize aircraft that fits into the product line quite well. It complements the large size product line that Gulfstream has been known for for so long.
The flat floor in this airplane makes for an impressive space that allows for any and all sorts of business and pleasure to be conducted. The stand-up cabin only adds to the interior that impresses. A cabin that can be configured to hold anywhere between eight and nineteen seats shows the flexibility of this vehicle. Being almost 25 feet long, cabin space is abundant. The dual zone cabin temperature controller allows the separate zones to be conditioned to whatever is comfortable for each locale.
Transcontinental crossings are easily accomplished thanks to the 3,400 mile range. This fits nicely into the overall scope of Gulfstream’s fleet, fitting into the range with aplomb. Design refinements allow for reduced drag, making for an even more efficient airplane.
Using area rule technology, drag is reduced by quite a bit over non area-ruled designs. Just like in the G150, composites are used to lighten the load as well as improve aerodynamics by being formed into complex shapes that would cause a lot of work with aluminum.
The ability to fly eight passengers all the way to their destination, without stopping or leaving baggage behind is one of the attributes that makes the G200 such a popular aircraft, and one that is not found in many other aircraft. Especially ones in the cabin segment that the G200 succeeds so well in. Relatively high wing loading makes for a smooth ride in turbulence as well, only adding to the appeal that the G200 offers. Gulfstream surely has a segment leader on their hands and will continue to improve the G200 over the years, just as it has done with others in the Gulfstream family.
Had a great flight yesterday. The pilots were amazing. Got us thru a storm and wind with hardly a bump. Very impressive.
The trip was great. We were scheduled to depart at 9:00am. My parents arrived at the Bermuda Dunes Airport around 8:15. The pilots were ready a long time before that. They asked if we wanted to leave early and we got my father loaded up in the jet and left 8:30am. You couldn’t do that with a commercial flight. The pilots were very courteous and professional. They made us feel safe and comfortable before the flight and during the flight.
I used to charter from other companies, until I met the personnel from Desert Jet. I haven’t flown with anybody else in the last 10 years. Desert Jet is an organization that puts safety first, and I appreciate their professionalism.
They are professional; they care about what they do. It’s a top notch organization right here in our backyard.
Thanks for the super crisp, professional, and friendly service…will definitely use you guys again!
