Information about Gulfstream III
Already in 1974, the company “Grumman” considered the draft intercontinental successor Gulfstream II with an extended fuselage. The increase in flight range was achieved by installing a new wing of a supercritical profile with the addition of the wing-ends, bent upward. Spey engines left, because there were no better options. According to calculations, the new aircraft could carry eight passengers per 7,400 km at a cruising speed of 0.84M. The cost of such flights could not be calculated, which prompted the company to freeze the project shortly before the 1977 Paris Air Show.
In April 1978, “Grumman American” still released this version, equipped with a wing with winglets, but without a supercritical profile. Salon lengthened by 61 cm compared with the Gulfstream II. The cabin layout was changed, and instead of two portholes in the bow, one was made. Grumman hoped to start generating revenue for the first 200 Gulfstream III aircraft built from December 1979.
The assembly of the first prototype GIII with the number N300GA began in June 1979, ended on September 21, and for the first time it took off on December 2. His flight certificate was received on September 22, 1980. By that time, 72 solid orders had already been received for the GUI.
The first customers and recipients are the Danish Air Force, the firms Superior Oil, Mobil Corporation, Armco Steel, Combustion Engineering and National Distillers. Earlier, GIII demonstrated its capabilities, setting seven world records during a demonstration tour of Europe in April – May 1980. He showed an average speed of 831 km / h during the 7348-km flight from Savannah to Hannover and the flight altitude of 15,820 m during the return flight from Geneva to Washington.
In November 1982, Gulfstream American was renamed Gulfstream Aerospace. She built 206 copies of Gulfstream III, most of which are still in use today. During the mass production of Gulfstream III has become the benchmark for business jets “high class”. Worldwide, he is considered a successful airliner for businessmen and government officials. Members of the governments of Algeria, Angola, Bahrain, Brunei, Cameroon, Chad, Dubai, Egypt, India, Indonesia, Ivory Coast, Japan, Jordan, Kuwait, Libya, Malaysia, Mexico, Morocco, Nigeria, Oman, Panama , Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Uganda and the United States. Other countries used them in the form of light military transport aircraft.
For military tasks, Gulfstream has developed several special versions, such as the SMA-3 light transporter and the SRA-1 scout. The main success in the military field came with the choice of the US Air Force of this machine as a replacement for the C-140 JetStar. Later, under the S-20 index, it was accepted by all five American military branches. The last Gulfstream III aircraft built was the army C-20E, after which it was replaced in the production of a new type of G.1159C Gulfstream IV.
One Gulfstream GIII aircraft, code N1NA, known as “NASA One,” is attached to the NASA aircraft office at the Langley, Virginia, research center to serve its management.
