Customers based in the Asia-Pacific region require aircraft that have the range, speed and payload capacity to travel easily between world business centers,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream. “Each aircraft we’re showcasing in Singapore, including the G500 and G600, is at the top of its class. We’re excited to have the G500 and G600 in Asia, so customers can explore their exquisite interiors, unparalleled comfort and superior craftsmanship.”

There are more than 330 Gulfstream aircraft in service in the Asia-Pacific region – 280 of them large-cabin.

Following impressive regional growth since 2012, we have continued to invest in and grow our customer product support network which now includes Gulfstream Beijing, our service center; two additional Gulfstream-authorized service centers; four Gulfstream-authorized warranty facilities; and 10 field service representatives,” said Derek Zimmerman, president, Gulfstream Product Support.

The latest addition in Gulfstream's family of jets, the G600 will succeed the G550. The G600 are powered by two Pratt & Whitney Canada PW815GA turbofan engines, offering a range of 6,500 nmi (12,040 km) and a maximum speed of 982 km/h at cruising altitude. Both can accomodate up to 19 passengers.
