The Gulfstream G200 private jet is an IAI-1126 Galaxy business jet manufactured by the Israeli jet builder IAI. Since 2001, it is called the Gulfstream G200 and is included in the model range of the American manufacturer. The aircraft combines comfort provided by a spacious cabin, reduced noise level, a spacious luggage compartment, and high efficiency. The technical advantages of the model include a rapid climb, high speed, and the ability to land on short runways.
The G200 can accommodate eight to eighteen passengers. The aircraft seats ten people and has a conference/dining table for four people as well as a three-seat sofa opposite. The cabin height of the G200 is 6ft 3in (1.91m) and the width is 7ft 2in (2.18m), allowing cabin configurations more common in larger business aircraft.
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) approved the installation of the satellite-based High-Speed Data System (HSDS) in G200 jets in February 2005, giving passengers quick access to internet-based communications. HSDS is available as a new jet option or as a retrofit.
The G200 has full flight certification in all weather conditions, including known icing. The final certification item was icing tests, which were completed in early December 2000 by a test aircraft in natural icing conditions over Northern Europe.
