GULF­STREAM AERO­SPACE BULLISH FOR 2019

Jetgala - - BRIEFINGS -

As the US busi­ness jet maker brings two new large-cabin cor­po­rate jets to mar­ket, Gulf­stream Aero­space is op­ti­mistic about sales op­por­tu­ni­ties and de­liv­er­ies for the com­ing year.

The com­pany is pin­ning its hopes on the new G500 and G600 busi­ness jets, which will en­ter the mar­ket in 2019. “I ex­pect next year will be a growth year,” com­pany pres­i­dent Mark Burns said dur­ing the Na­tional Busi­ness Avi­a­tion As­so­ci­a­tion an­nual cor­po­rate jet show in Or­lando, Flor­ida. “We’re bring­ing two new air­planes to mar­ket at a time when the mar­ket is im­prov­ing.” Burns fur­ther said that he is con­fi­dent the com­pany will meet its tar­gets for 2018 but is more hope­ful for 2019. The G500 was cer­ti­fied in July, with the first de­liv­ery made in Septem­ber. The larger G600 will be cer­ti­fied be­fore end2018 and will en­ter ser­vice in 2019.
