Aircraft Gulfstream G100 is a small aircraft designed to perform business transportation at distances up to 4660 kilometers. On board the aircraft can accommodate from 6 (standard cabin equipment) to 9 people (advanced version), while the aircraft is reliable enough, which is appreciated not only by the direct owners, but also by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). Nevertheless, taking into account the fact that the aircraft was developed for a long time, this model could not compete with other aircraft of an administrative type, and therefore the production of Gulfstream G100 was carried out only for several years, however, even in these short time it was possible to produce about hundreds airplanes, most of which continue to be operated not only by private owners, but also by aircraft operators around the world.

The power plant of the aircraft Gulfstream G100 includes two turbofan engines Honeywell TFE-731-40R, allowing to develop the capacity of 18,9 kN each, allowing aircraft to travel long distances and to make air travel at speeds of the order of 890 km \ h. (maximum speed of flight). Among other things, it is worth noting that this power plant is not only sufficiently robust, and easy to maintain, as a consequence, the aircraft operating costs owners quite cheap.

Aircraft Gulfstream G100 comes in two basic interior design, which is primarily dependent on the configuration of the aircraft at the same time the customer can submit its own version of the trim that enables the most comfortable operation of the aircraft for passengers.

The cockpit Gulfstream G100

The cockpit Gulfstream G100 quite cramped, however, there are modern means of avionics, allowing control of the aircraft is very simple and does not cause any difficulties for pilots.

One option is a version of the Gulfstream G100 Gulfstream C-38 Courier designed specifically for the US Air Force. Appearance of the plane did not undergone changes, as well as the technical specifications, but the aircraft was equipped with more modern electronic means used by the military in the implementation of flights.
