Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. recently delivered the 500th PlaneView™ cockpit, achieving the milestone just eight years after the flight deck was first delivered.
Additionally, the company has furnished 200 synthetic vision systems and more than 100 enhanced navigation systems.
The deliveries solidify the manufacturer´s technological leadership position in the business-aviation industry. Gulfstream was the first original equipment manufacturer to get Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certification of synthetic vision in 2008. The FAA certified Gulfstream´s enhanced navigation system in 2010.
"These milestones reflect the tremendous appeal of these products, which offer a number of benefits to operators including improved safety, enhanced reliability, reduced pilot workload and increased situational awareness," said Pres Henne, senior vice president, Programs, Engineering and Test, Gulfstream. "Gulfstream´s tradition of excellence and innovation continues with PlaneView II, the advanced flight deck on the all-new Gulfstream G650."
Gulfstream reached the 500th PlaneView mark with the delivery of the 209th large-cabin, long-range G450 aircraft.
