GULFSTREAM AEROSPACE BULLISH FOR 2019
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.
