 Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. will showcase its full fleet of aircraft, including the recently certified Gulfstream G650 and G280, at the 65th Annual National Business Aviation Association Meeting & Convention in Orlando from Oct. 30-Nov. 1.

Total Technical Training, a hands-on aircraft maintenance training program;

Advanced Technologies, enhancements for the cockpit, cabin management and entertainment systems for large-cabin and mid-cabin models, including features and timelines for any mandated items;

The Interior Design Center, focusing on the company’s interior design capabilities and featuring an opportunity to experience real-time rendering technology;

PlaneBook, a portable compact electronic document manager that provides pilots access to critical flight information during flight; and

PlaneParts™, a spare-parts subscription service that offers Gulfstream owners and operators a way to manage their yearly maintenance costs.

Additionally, the exhibit will feature one-twentieth scale models of the full Gulfstream fleet, from the G150 through the G650, along with iPad information stations specific to each aircraft model.
