Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. today announced it has delivered a Gulfstream G600 to private jet charter company Thrive Aviation. The addition of the next-generation Gulfstream aircraft marks Thrive’s expansion into the long-range, on-demand private charter market.
This G600, designed and built in Gulfstream’s advanced manufacturing facility at its worldwide headquarters in Savannah, was outfitted at Gulfstream’s Dallas completions centre. Additionally, Gulfstream Customer Support will service Thrive’s G600 at the all-new Mesa Service Centre in Arizona, convenient to Thrive’s Henderson, Nevada, base.
The G600 can travel 6,600 nautical miles/12,223 kilometres at Mach 0.85 or 5,600 nm/10,371 km at Mach 0.90, all while demonstrating impressive fuel-efficiency. The aircraft’s award-winning interior features whisper-quiet noise levels, a refreshingly low cabin altitude, 100% fresh air purified by a plasma ionisation clean air system and abundant natural light from 14 Gulfstream panoramic oval windows.
