More about the GIII
In 1967, The Grumman Gulfstream GII was introduced as the first transcontinental-range business jet with a true stand up cabin. A redesign was announced in 1976, but the project was cancelled in May of 1977. However, in 1978, the GIII was announced, featuring upgrades such as a fuselage stretch, a new wing design, and a wrap around windshield.
Production on the GIII started in 1979 and ended in 1987. 202 aircraft have been built so far.
Key Features of the GIII
The cabin of the GIII measures 41.3 feet in length, reaches 6.1 feet in height, and stretches 7.3 feet in width, allowing for a total cabin volume of 1,502 cubic feet. The cabin of the GIII is usually set in a corporate layout, capable of accommodating eight to twelve passengers in club combination arrangements; however, as many as nineteen passengers can be accommodated. Amenities incorporated in the GIII include a deluxe refreshment center with a coffee maker and refrigerator and a full sized lavatory. With the new, improved wing design, the GIII features a significant reduction in fuel burn which, when combined with the increased fuel capacity, allows for a vast increase in range without adding wing tip tanks. With a maximum pressure differential of 9.5, the GIII is capable of maintaining a sea level cabin at an altitude of 22,000 feet.
Capabilities of the GIII
The GIII comes equipped with two Rolls-Royce Spey Mk 511-8 tubofan engines. Each engine is rated for 11,400 pounds of thrust and features an inspection interval of 8,000 hours. The GIII requires 5,100 feet of runway to take off at sea level on a standard day. This takeoff distance increases to 7,175 feet of runway at an airport altitude of 5,000 feet and a temperature of 25 degrees Celsius. With four passengers, the GIII needs only 2,600 feet of runway to land. The GIII features a maximum certificated altitude of 45,000 feet and a range of 4,000 nautical miles at .84 Mach with eight passengers on board. In a high-speed cruise configuration, the GIII is capable of maintaining an airspeed of 488 knots at an altitude of 39,000 feet with a fuel flow of 4,016 gallons per hour. For a flight to a further destination, the GIII is capable of maintaining an airspeed of 442 knots at an altitude of 45,000 feet with a fuel flow of 2,712 gallons per hour in a long range cruise configuration.
A typical avionics installation for the GIII is the Rockwell Collins Pro Line 4, and may include systems such as dual Honeywell laser INS, a four tube electronic flight instrument system (EFIS), dual TDR 94 transponders, the Sperry SPZ 800 flight director system, triple Collins VHF 20 comms, dual Collins VIR 31 navs, a Sperry Primus 800 color weather radar, dual ADF, Global GNS 1000 FMS, and a Collins HF 628 high frequency comm. An upgrade to the Pro Line 4, the Pro Line 21, includes a number of additional systems and products that offer opportunities to improve the operational efficiency of the aircraft.
