GULFSTREAM G650ER AND G500 EARN DESIGN ACCOLADESRecord-Breaking Gulfstream G650ER And Next-Generation G500 Shortlisted For International Yacht & Aviation Awards
SAVANNAH, Georgia, April 24, 2019 — Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. today announced its design team has been shortlisted for two International Yacht & Aviation Awards. The ultralong-range Gulfstream G650ER interior has been shortlisted for the Private Jet Design award, and the clean-sheet Gulfstream G500 was shortlisted for the Private Jet Design Concept award.
Gulfstream earned The International Yacht & Aviation Awards for Private Jet Design in 2018 and 2017 for the all-new Gulfstream G600 and flagship G650ER, respectively. The ergonomically advanced Gulfstream-designed seats on the G500 and G600 also earned an International Yacht & Aviation Award in the Product category in 2018.
The G650ER interior, Serenity and Style, featured in this year’s Private Jet Design category reflects Gulfstream’s more than 60-year heritage of marrying excellent design with technology. The design bridges the aircraft’s industry-leading performance capabilities and cabin environment with carefully curated aesthetics through a play of textures and finishes inspired by high design. Combined with 100 percent fresh air, low cabin altitude and Gulfstream’s signature panoramic windows, the G650ER cabin fosters serenity and wellness.
For the Private Jet Design Concept category, Gulfstream envisioned an interior design reflective of the technologically advanced and high-performing G500. The Velocity concept translates the speed of life on the ground to the near-supersonic Gulfstream speed in the skies. Through an aesthetic inspired by high-concept racing, the Velocity G500 offers an interior and exterior expression of Gulfstream performance capabilities.
Winners are selected by popular vote; ballots can be cast from April 24 through May 22.
