EBACE (European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition) is an annual event held in Geneva, Switzerland, that brings together business aviation professionals from around the world to showcase the latest products and services in the industry. GULFSTREAM Aerospace Corporation is one of the leading manufacturers of business jets, and the company is a regular participant at EBACE.
GULFSTREAM has been a prominent exhibitor at EBACE for many years, showcasing their latest business jet models and technologies to potential customers and industry professionals. At the event, GULFSTREAM typically displays a range of their aircraft, including the GULFSTREAM G500, G600, G650, and G700 models. GULFSTREAM also uses the event to announce new products and services and to network with other companies in the business aviation industry.
In addition to participating in the exhibition, GULFSTREAM has also used EBACE as a platform to highlight their commitment to sustainable aviation. In 2019, the company announced that they would be using Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) on all flights departing from EBACE in an effort to reduce their carbon footprint and promote more sustainable aviation practices.
GULFSTREAM G500 Unites Performance and Comfort with Revolutionary Technology
Outfitted with high-thrust engines and an aerodynamic new wing, the G500 is built for effortless takeoffs and landings. Enjoy access to short runways and high-altitude airports, coupled with increases in efficiency and reductions in emissions. The long-range G500 offers a high cruise speed of Mach 0.90, allowing fewer flight hours with longer periods between scheduled maintenance visits, higher potential aircraft value, and fresher crews.
GULFSTREAM G500 received its European Aviation Safety Agency certification in 2019, clearing the way for European Union registrations and customer deliveries. Well before the G500 entered service in September 2018, the aircraft had already proven its maturity and capabilities with a score of city-pair speed records set across the world, including Seville, Spain, to Abu Dhabi in 5 hours and 45 minutes; Geneva to Chicago in 8 hours; Doha, Qatar, to Shannon, Ireland, in just over 7 hours and 30 minutes; and Farnborough, England, to Las Vegas in 10 hours and 20 minutes. The G500 can travel 4,400 nautical miles/8,149 kilometers at Mach 0.90 and 5,300 nm/9,816 km at Mach 0.85.
GULFSTREAM G500 Offers Great Flexibility with Award-Winning Interior
Designed to be the quietest in business aviation, the G500 cabin provides a peaceful environment. The award-winning tall and wide G500 cabin offers interior designers great flexibility, including the option of a forward or an aft galley and an aft stateroom lit by four panoramic oval windows. With fourteen windows, the largest in business aviation, G500 offers abundant natural light and sweeping views of the world. In addition to the bespoke interior, passengers flying aboard the G500 benefit from 100% fresh, never recirculated air, industry-leading low cabin altitudes, and whisper-quiet sound levels.
The seat collection on the G500 was chosen for an International Yacht & Aviation Award for its advanced ergonomics and aesthetics that can be tailored to customers' design preferences and mission requirements.
Safety Synchronized with Superior Sightlines
The Symmetry Flight Deck of the G500 features active control sidesticks that increase visual and tactile feedback between pilots. Ten touch-screen displays and Phase-of-Flight intelligence enhance safety, operational efficiency, and redundancy while providing intuitive access to essential information.
G500's Enhanced Flight Vision System (EFVS) allows authorized pilots to land without natural vision in low-visibility conditions, increasing access to airports and reducing go-arounds. A Synthetic Vision-Primary Flight Display featuring 3D graphics of terrain and runways further boosts pilots' situational awareness.

The G700 also includes the GULFSTREAM Symmetry Flight Deck with the industry's only electronically linked active control sidesticks, the most extensive use of touchscreen technology in business aviation, and GULFSTREAM’s award-winning Predictive Landing Performance System. The aircraft can fly at its high-speed cruise of Mach 0.90 for 6,400 nautical miles/11,853 kilometers or at its long-range cruise of Mach 0.85 for 7,500 nm/13,890 km (subject to headwinds, high altitude, hot temperatures, or higher capacity).
GULFSTREAM G700 Amasses 25 Speed Records During World Tour G700 achieved 25 speed records on the recently completed G700 world tour.
