Overview & History
The Gulfstream G200 (formerly known as the Galaxy 1126) is a super-midsize medium-range twin-turbofan corporate jet.
As of May 2020, 84% of Gulfstream G200 aircraft were purchased pre-owned by their current owner, the other 16% new. 11.6% are for sale with the majority of those (89%) under an exclusive broker agreement. When for sale the average time on the market is 224 days.
Originally named Astra Galaxy, the G200 began as a product of Israel Aircraft Industries’ subsidiary Galaxy Aerospace Inc.
Design of the Galaxy model first began in the late 1980s. The first flight took place on December 25, 1997, and it received certification one year later from the US and Israeli aviation agencies.
The Galaxy was renamed “G200” after Gulfstream Aerospace acquired Galaxy Aerospace in June 2001, 2 years after deliveries began. Production ended in 2011 with a total of 250 deliveries of which nine have been retired.
Gulfstream G200 Performance
The Gulfstream G200 comes standard with two Pratt & Whitney PW306A engines. These engines, similar to those used on the Learjet 60 and Hawker 1000, are rated at 6,040 pounds of thrust each.
As such, these powerful engines allow the G200 to climb to an altitude of 37,000 feet in just 19 minutes.
The G200 requires 6,083 feet of runway to take off on a standard day. At an airport with an altitude of 5,000 feet, this requirement increases to 8,804 feet.
With four passengers, the G200 needs only 2,590 feet of runway to land. This private business jet features an impressive transoceanic range of 3,400 nautical miles, making the G200 an ideal choice for flights to distant destinations.
In a long-range cruise configuration, the G200 is capable of flying at an altitude of 41,000 feet and an airspeed of 430 knots.
For a quicker flight, the G200 is capable of maintaining an airspeed of 470 knots at an altitude of 37,000 feet.
