Gulfstream G300/G350

Overview

Many factors influence a business jet’s mission requirements. There’s the destination, of course. Then consider the average number of passengers, the number and types of missions flown each month, and other factors. Recognizing the diversity of its operators’ needs, Gulfstream had the foresight years ago to develop a comprehensive fleet of aircraft that meets every price point and mission requirement from 3,000 nautical miles (5,556 km) to 7,000 nm (12,965 km).

Gulfstream G300

Gulfstream G350

Fitting nicely in the middle is the Gulfstream G350® large-cabin, mid-range business jet, a niche airplane designed for operators who require transcontinental range and the same comfortable cabin appointments as those found on its sister ship, the G450® long-range business jet. The G350 can whisk eight passengers and a crew of three 3,800 nautical miles (7,038 km) at a cruise speed of Mach 0.80. That means it can easily connect Washington, D.C., with any point in the continental U.S. and Alaska. Alternatively, it can link Miami with Rio de Janeiro and Sydney with Singapore.

The G350 takes advantage of the leading role Gulfstream plays in developing advanced aviation technology. It’s equipped with the Gulfstream PlaneView®cockpit, the same flight deck developed for the ultra-long-range G500® andG550®. The PlaneView® cockpit has been hailed as the most advanced flight deck available in business aviation.

The G350′s wide, roomy cabin can comfortably accommodate up to 16 passengers in three distinct seating areas. To personalize the aircraft, operators may choose from six individual floor plans. The G350 boasts an unmatched cabin environment. The tastefully appointed cabin boasts three temperature zones, abundant natural light streaming through a dozen of Gulfstream’s signature oval windows and 100 percent fresh air constantly circulating through the cabin.

To measure the value of the G350, think of the many years of research and development that Gulfstream has invested in its ultra-long-range aircraft. Gulfstream introduced the first ultra-long-range business jet, the GV, more than a decade ago. Since then, our engineers and designers have been steadily improving the technology, making each successive model safer and more comfortable by enhancing the avionics systems, situational awareness and passenger comfort and amenities.

For more than 50 years, Gulfstream has been earning the respect and trust of business travelers. By combining performance with safety, comfort and affordability, the G350 upholds the Gulfstream tradition.

Performance

The Gulfstream G350® large-cabin, mid-range business jet is truly a niche aircraft.

Developed for operators who don’t require the long-range capability of the Gulfstream G450®, the G350 combines transcontinental range with the same spacious and comfortable cabin appointments found on its sister ship.

Powered by two Rolls-Royce Tay Mk 611-8C engines, each one producing 13,850 pounds (61.61 kN) of thrust, the G350 can transport eight passengers and a crew of three up to 3,800 nautical miles (7,038 km) at a normal cruise speed of Mach 0.80. That means it can reach any point in the continental United States, and Alaska, from Washington, D.C. It can also link Miami with Rio de Janeiro or Sydney with Singapore – again, with eight passengers and the crew. This transcontinental airplane also excels at short-range performance.

The G350 can climb to its initial cruise altitude of 41,000 feet (12,497 m) in less than 20 minutes, then step up to a maximum cruise altitude of 45,000(13,716 m), far above adverse weather, turbulence and commercial aircraft traffic.

Its twin Rolls-Royce Tay engines, equipped with FADEC (full authority digital engine control), operate at peak efficiency. In addition to the obvious benefit, that serves to extend the TBO (time between overhauls) to 12,000 hours, another cost savings. A larger fan and turbine improvements also help to boost fuel efficiency.

With an impressive 5,050 ft (1,539 m) takeoff distance at maximum weight, the G350 can operate from some of the most demanding airports across the country and around the world. Like most Gulfstream aircraft, it’s equally at ease at home or abroad.

Technology

Gulfstream’s innovative PlaneView® cockpit, the same technologically advanced avionics suite developed for the ultra-long-range GulfstreamG500® and G550®, is a standard feature on the Gulfstream G350® large-cabin, mid-range business jet. Based on Honeywell’s Primus Epic® integrated avionics system, the PlaneView; cockpit is, without reservation, the most advanced flight deck available in business aviation today.

The G350′s avionics suite features four 14-inch (36 cm) liquid crystal display screens that provide pilots with a wealth of system status flight information in landscape format. The PlaneView cockpit was the first in the industry to incorporate this type of display in its avionics suite.

With its elegant, human interface design, the PlaneView flight deck presents a clean, concise array of flight navigation and system displays, all placed in logical and familiar locations. Besides providing advanced flight deck functionality, the standard and optional flight systems in the PlaneView cockpit also serve to heighten situational awareness.

Every PlaneView cockpit features a fully synchronous triple FMS (flight management system), a feature not found in competitive aircraft. By using the Gulfstream signature Cursor Control Device (CCD), another first, pilots can interact with the FMS and the display map for true, graphical flight planning. The integrated navigation map displays the flight plan along with the terrain, airways, airports, navigational aids and radar data. Like a computer mouse, the CCD is a natural interface for display selection, configuration, checklist and other functions.

With its open architecture, the PlaneView cockpit easily accommodates optional or future avionics upgrades. Optional items available for the G350 include the next-generation Honeywell Head-Up Display II and the exclusive Gulfstream Enhanced Vision System II™. The EVS displays a clear picture of runway markings, taxiways, other aircraft and the landscape at night or in poor weather conditions. This unique system dramatically improves safety during landings in low visibility conditions. The Gulfstream EVS was the first system of its kind to earn FAA certification and today there are over 400 units in service on Gulfstream aircraft.

Gulfstream became the first manufacturer to certify synthetic vision under Part 25 rules. Referred to as SV-PFD™ (Synthetic Vision Primary Flight Display) by Gulfstream because of how it is integrated with the normal PFD in front of the pilot, it gives unprecedented levels of situational awareness using the current EGPWS database and GPS receivers on board the airplane to give an accurate picture of the terrain in front of the pilot regardless of the conditions outside.

The G350 uses the latest technology and safety features to accommodate your needs.
