More about the Gulfstream G400
Gulfstream first used turbofan engines in 1967 with the aircraft remaining in production until 1980, when the Gulfstream III was the leading business jet. However, keen on improving noise level and fuel characteristics, the engineers at Gulfstream selected the Rolls-Royce turbofan for the GIV. Since the introduction of the GIV, several variants of the model have been developed, the latest of which is the Gulfstream G400. Amenities featured in the G400 include a full stand up cabin, a large galley, and a full sized lavatory equipped with a shower.
Production on the Gulfstream G400 started in 2003 and ended in 2004. 23 aircraft have been built so far.
