  • ProductionMore than 75 G-V orders held, including two ordered by the US Air Force as C-37s. Over 35 delivered by late 1998. A Gulfstream V delivered in September 1997 was the 1000th Gulfstream built.

The Gulfstream V is the biggest and most recent advancement of the Gulfstream line of corporate transports, intended to fly intercontinental separations. It contends with Bombardier's Global Express, the Boeing Business Jet and Airbus A319cj.

Gulfstream Aerospace initially published it was contemplating an extended ultra long go corporate transport focused around the Gulfstream IV at the yearly NBAA tradition in October 1989, while the project was authoritatively propelled at the 1992 Farnborough Airshow. In the first place flight was on November 28 1995, with confirmation and first conveyances anticipated late 1996. Temporary FAA accreditation was recompensed in December 1996, full confirmation was allowed in April 1997. The primary client conveyance was on July 1 1997.

Underscoring its rapid, long run capabilities, by September 1997 the G-V had set no short of what 36 world city pair, class time to climb and elevation records.

The Gulfstream V is focused around the Gulfstream IV, yet offers various significant progressions to suit its diverse configuration targets. The most evident change is the extended fuselage, the G-V is 2.49m (8ft 2in) more drawn out generally speaking than the G-IV.

Maybe the most vital changes however are the progressed new wing configuration and new BMW Rolls-Royce BR-710 turbofans (the G-V is the first application for the new BR-710 motor). The all new wing is continuously fabricated by Northrop Grumman, and is advanced for fast flight. It was created utilizing Computer Aided Design and NASA created computational liquid progress. The flightdeck is constructed around a six screen Honeywell EFIS flying suite

Wing producer Vought Aircraft Industries and Japan's Shinmaywa are likewise hazard offering accomplices in the GV program.
