Gulfstream has received a Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) from the FAA for its Elite interior package on the G450 and G550. The new streamlined cabin was originally designed for the ultra-long-range G650, but is being made available as an option on the two other models.
The certificate clears the way for the optional interior upgrade, which includes a streamlined passenger service unit, fully loaded electronic seats and the Gulfstream Cabin Management System (GCMS), to be installed on customer G550 and G450 aircraft.
“Gulfstream’s leadership in electronic design means we can provide the best and latest technology to our customers,” said Bob Geary, director, research and development, final phase, Gulfstream. “With the Elite interior, passengers can have total control over their environment thanks to touch-screen-based wireless handhelds that are part of the Gulfstream Cabin Management System.”
Gulfstream had a G450 with the new design on teh static display of the Singapore Air Show in February.
