Since 1967, when the U.S. Navy selected the Gulfstream I® as the weapon system and navigational trainer for its A-6 crews, Gulfstream aircraft have earned widespread recognition as the definitive choice for special missions platforms. Today, more Gulfstream aircraft perform government and military service than any other large-cabin business jet aircraft in the world. More than 30 countries worldwide operate Gulfstreams, including 23 nations that use our aircraft to transport their heads-of-state. Within the United States, Gulfstream aircraft account for the majority of all large-cabin business jets delivered to the government from 1967 to the present. Gulfstream performance and mission reliability has even earned us the distinction and privilege of serving all five branches of the U.S. military.
Unlike other business jet aircraft manufacturers, Gulfstream maintains a long-established Special Missions Program Office, staffed by program managers and project engineers with the experience and expertise to meet the most demanding challenges. Working with domestic and international governments and defense contractors, we design our platforms to meet specific national requirements. Then, in conjunction with our technology partners, we coordinate aircraft modifications and oversee the integration of state-of-the-art mission equipment to meet each customer’s unique needs.
Gulfstream aircraft have been defining and redefining The World Standard® in special missions for more than 40 years. From the mid-cabin, high-speed Gulfstream G150 to the large-cabin, ultra-long-range Gulfstream G550, our fleet offers the highest performance transportation and special missions platform solutions for government and military applications worldwide.
