湾流G500完成颤振试验

Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. announced in February the Gulfstream G500 has completed flutter testing, achieving another milestone in the new aircraft’s flight-test program. The first G500 test aircraft, T1, performed the tests over the course of more than 50 flights.

The G500 is part of Gulfstream’s new family of clean-sheet aircraft, the G500 and G600. Gulfstream has conducted more than 43,000 hours of testing for both aircraft in Gulfstream’s state-of-the-art lab facilities.

The G500 can fly 5,000 nautical miles/9,260 kilometers at Mach 0.85 or 3,800 nm/7,038 km at Mach 0.90. The aircraft is powered by the new Pratt & Whitney Canada PW814GA engine, which delivers excellent fuel efficiency, fewer emissions and less noise. The G500 is expected to receive type certification from the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration and European Aviation Safety Agency in 2017. It is scheduled to enter service in 2018, with the G600 following in 2019.

湾流宇航公司于二月宣布,湾流G500已完成颤振试验,实现了新机试飞计划中的又一里程碑。首架G500试飞飞机T1在50多次试飞中执行了多项测试和试验。

G500是湾流全新机型系列G500和G600的一部分。湾流已在其尖端实验室设施内对这两型飞机进行了43,000多小时的测试。G500能以0.85马赫飞行9,260公里,或以0.90马赫飞行7,038公里。它采用了普惠加拿大公司的全新PW814GA发动机,该发动机具有出色的燃油效率、更少的碳排放和更低的噪音。G500预计在2017年获得美国联邦航空局和欧洲航空安全局颁发的型号合格证,并计划于2018年投入运营。G600紧随其后,预计于2019年投入运营。
