Business aviation is an engine for economic growth, enabling companies to develop new ideas and grow internationally. But is business aviation sustainable? In an article and video published on Business Reporter, Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation describes their innovative and highly effective approach to sustainability.
Designing for sustainability is critical. In addition to enhanced aerodynamics, Gulfstream focuses on engine efficiency. Gulfstream jets often fly 15000 feet higher than commercial jets: efficient performance at that height means that they are able to use less fuel, avoid adverse weather and fly more directly between destinations. Fuel is saved while at the same time journey times are shortened.
