Gulfstream G-III for Sale

Gulfstream G-III Ownership Overview

From its inception, the Gulfstream G-III has made a name for itself, starting as the first business jet to fly over both poles. This heavy jet has a further range and increased payload capacity than its predecessors, while sitting at a cheaper price point than competition. Those looking for a jet which will provide them with a luxurious flight across thousands of miles will do well looking into a Gulfstream G-III for sale.

Gulfstream G-III Cabin Experience

The Gulfstream G-III is capable of transporting a maximum of 12 people and 2 crew members. The aircraft includes a lavatory at the end of its 40ft long cabin, inside the 80ft long fuselage. The sides of the cabin, similar to that of many other Gulfstream aircraft, provides indentations right where passengers’ shoulders rest so that they have more space while seated, to provide them with maximum comfort.

Total cabin space is more than 1,300 cubic feet, with roughly 830 cubic feet of that dedicated to passenger seating, comparable to the more advanced Gulfstream G-IV. Typically each passenger has 70 cubic feet of space to themselves. The height of the cabin is over 6ft tall, and the width is over 7ft. The entry door is over 5ft tall and baggage receives just under 160 cubic feet of room all in an internal location.

Gulfstream G-III Mission Profile

Customers who buy a Gulfstream G-III are those looking for a cabin interior and range capability similar to that of more advanced versions in the family, but at a fraction of the price. This heavy jet is also incredibly reliable as all operating systems on board have a backup, providing flyers with a strong sense of security.

Like others in its family, the Gulfstream G-III is a popular choice for military branches throughout the world. Its durability and reliability during operations in vastly different environments proves the impressive capability on any mission type.
