In 2022, the Gulfstream G650 and G650ER were certified for steep approach landing operations by the European Union Aviation Safety Administration (EASA), unlocking the ability for European operators to access even more airports around the world.

“Our customers already benefit from the revolutionary performance and efficiency of the G500,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream. “We are now pleased to deliver steep-approach capability as well, providing additional flexibility by unlocking access to even more destinations around the world.”
