05/06/2008 GULFSTREAM ROLLS-OUT 200TH G200
The 200th Gulfstream G200 was rolled out at the Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) manufacturing plant at Ben Gurion International Airport, Israel. The green business jet now moves to the Gulfstream Center of Excellence completion facility for mid-cabin business aircraft in Dallas, Texas, where it will be outfitted and painted.
This is a historic moment for Gulfstream and IAI, says Joe Lombardo, president, Gulfstream Aerospace. Manufacturing 200 aircraft of a single model is a significant accomplishment. In addition to highlighting the hard work of IAI employees, this milestone spotlights the G200’s superior performance as well as its popularity in the business-aviation industry.
The strong partnership between Gulfstream and IAI over the past seven years has resulted in excellent mid-cabin business jets being made available to international operators from the perspective of safety, reliability, quality and price competitiveness, says Itzhak Nissan, president and chief executive officer, Israel Aerospace Industries. We rejoice with our colleagues at Gulfstream in reaching this major milestone in the G200 program.
