The Gulfstream G500 is nearing the end of function and reliability testing after completing certification tests for flight into known icing and high-altitude conditions.

Gulfstream has taken the G500 on a six-month world tour, slated to end June 10 in Paris, during which the type has logged more than 240 flying hours and over 100,300 nautical miles.

The company’s other in-development aircraft, the Gulfstream G600, is currently undergoing mechanical systems certification testing.

There are five G500s and five G600s in the flight testing and certification testing programmes for the new business jets.
