The Gulfstream 100 was designed fly long distances at high speeds. It can easily complete nonstop trips from Seattle to New York or from Singapore to Tokyo and has a maximum cruise speed of .84 Mach. It lives up to the standards of reliability and high performance in private jets that Galaxy Aerospace Corp and its owner, Israel Aircraft Industries, have come to be known for.

The seven-passenger cabin of the Gulfstream 100 is 17.1 feet long, 5.6 feet high, and 4.8 feet wide. All of the usual amenities are available: power outlets, a galley, and an enclosed lavatory. There is 42 cubic feet of baggage space (up to 370 pounds) in an external compartment, or 55 cubic feet if the jet is not fitted with an extension fuel tank.

The Gulfstream 100 can reach its highest speeds of 470 knots, or about .84 Mach, at an altitude of 41,000 feet, which it reaches in about 16 minutes. For comparison, the Boeing 777 typically cruises at only 35,000 feet. It is advantageous to fly so high for two reasons: first, 41,000 feet is above most inclement weather, and second, there is almost no air traffic at such a high altitude.

Fast cruise speeds and high cruising altitudes would be of little use if it weren’t for the Gulfstream 100’s 3,390 mile (2,950 nautical mile) range. The average range for mid-sized private jets is only 2,520 miles (2,189 nautical miles). This enables the G100 to easily complete transcontinental trips (New York to LA) or the occasional transoceanic trip (Boston to London).

Despite the fact that the Gulfstream 100’s cabin size classifies it as a mid-sized private jet, it performs like a large-cabin private jet. With a range of nearly 3,000 nautical miles and fast cruise speeds, it proves itself to be a worthy addition to the Gulfstream Corp Aerospace fleet.
