Gulfstream has received Type Certificate Validation from the Civil Aviation Authority of New Zealand for the Gulfstream G550 and G500. The approvals allow operators to register the business jets in that country.
The two aircraft join the large-cabin, long-range GIV, GIV-SP, G400 and G300, which New Zealand approved for registration in 2003.
“Over the past four years, more and more Gulfstream aircraft are being sold globally,” said Larry Flynn, senior vice president, Marketing and Sales, Gulfstream. “Having this certificate validation streamlines the registration process for operators who want to base their large-cabin Gulfstream aircraft in New Zealand.”
In addition to New Zealand, some other countries that have certified the G550/G500 include Argentina, Australia, Azerbaijan, Bermuda, Brazil, Canada, China, Hong Kong, Iceland, India, Korea, Mexico, Moldova, Monaco, Russia and Switzerland. The aircraft have also received Type Certificate Validation from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), which means they can be registered in any European Union (EU) country.
