Gulfstream has received US certification for the G300 large-cabin business jet, a derivative of the GIV. Both the G300 and the G400, which replaces the GIV-SP in the company's expanded, rebranded line-up, are scheduled for delivery from June.

Whereas the G400 has a 7,600km (4,100nm) range, a customisable interior and a five-year maintenance and training package included in the price, the G300 has a 6,700km range and is offered with three cabin layouts, seven interior packages and several standalone options.

Both aircraft use the GIV-SP's Honeywell SPZ-8400 integrated avionics, with head-up display and enhanced vision system available as options. Gulfstream's two long-range business jets, the G500 and G550, are based on the GV and feature the Honeywell Epic-based PlaneView flightdeck.

The 12,500km-range G550, formerly the GV-SP, received provisional US certification at the end of last year. The aircraft is customisable and comes with the training and maintenance package, whereas the 10,700km-range G500 is offered with a range of standard layouts and option packages.

Completing the revised line-up are the mid-size G100, super mid-size G200, and the mid-size G150 launched last year, with deliveries to begin in 2005.
