Gulfstream business jets receive Type Certificate Validation from Transport Canada

Gulfstream Aerospace, a wholly owned subsidiary of General Dynamics (NYSE:GD), recently received Type Certificate Validation from Transport Canada for the Gulfstream G550, G500, G450, G350 and GV.

These aircraft join seven other Gulfstream models already validated for Canadian certification – the G200, G150, G100, GIV, GIII, GIIB and GII. The additional validations mean Gulfstream operators can now register any in-production Gulfstream aircraft in Canada.

"We're delighted to be able to offer this service to our operators," said Larry Flynn, senior vice president, Sales and Marketing, Gulfstream Aerospace. "Securing this validation not only enables the registration of aircraft for operators in Canada, it also marks another chapter in the history of Gulfstream certifying its products there, beginning with the GII in 1978."

In a Gulfstream first, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) issued the G550 type and production certificates on the same day, Aug. 14, 2003.  The first G550 was delivered on Sept. 17, 2003.  The G500 was certified by the FAA in December 2003 and was delivered to its first customer in May 2004.

The FAA issued a type certificate (TC) for the G450 on Aug. 12, 2004, while the G350 received its TC from the FAA on Nov. 1, 2004.
