Gulfstream G-100 Overview
The Israel Aircraft Industries (IAI) Astra SP was upgraded again to the Astra SPX, which carries the same number of passengers (comfortably six) in basically the same cabin, but further and faster. Soon after, Gulfstream Aerospace acquired the Astra series, renaming the SPX the Gulfstream G-100.
Gulfstream G-100 Interior
The G-100 interior is best suited for seven passengers, thought it can be configured with up to 8 full seats. All models come standard with an eclosed lavatory, power outlets and folding executive tables. Being one of the smaller Midsize jets in the class, the G-100 relies more on its speed, range and operating cost as selling points.
Gulfstream G-100 Performance
The G-100 owes its improved speed and range to more powerful, FADEC-equipped Honeywell TFE731-40R-200Gs, and the addition of drag-reducing winglets to the design.The SPX/G100 cockpit employs the Rockwell Collins Pro Line 4 avionics system. With the Gulfstream acquisition, the G-100 and G-150 successor have improved technologies across the board.
