Gulfstream Aerospace raises safety, efficiency for operators
Gulfstream Aerospace announced its fleet of in-production aircraft has Federal Aviation Administration approval for Visual Advantage credit using the Enhanced Flight Vision System. This industry-first approval gives select operators authorization to dispatch and begin instrument approaches in low-visibility conditions below published approach minima. Additionally, all Gulfstream large-cabin aircraft have completed their certification flight testing for EFVS to touchdown and rollout operations. Gulfstream anticipates final FAA certification and operational approvals for the Gulfstream G500 and Gulfstream G600 by the end of this year, with approvals for the Gulfstream G450, Gulfstream G550 and Gulfstream G650 to follow. Gulfstream Aerospace is a wholly owned subsidiary of General Dynamics.
