FSX Gulfstream G550

Jump to: Screenshots | Comments | File Details

Gulfstream G550. The Gulfstream G550 is the largest and latest development of the Gulfstream line of corporate transports. This version incorporates all of the real-world flight dynamics including correct altitude cruise and speeds, range, power, and visual smoke (effects file). It has a maximum range of 8700 nm at Mach .80, FL510E. This plane is easy enough for just about any FSX-simmer to master in little time, and illustrates the technology used in today's modern corporate aircraft. Model, texture and sounds by Peter Brun. Corrected flight dynamics and data by Douglas E. Trapp.

Installation:

Simply copy the unzipped Gulfstream V folder and all of the subfolders to your SimObjects folder in FSX. Then enter the EFFECTS folder and read the effects.txt file for smoke installation.

Flying:

The only real thing to note with this aircraft (in FSX) is that the flaps are extreme, and the engines are powerful. No more that 2 notches are needed for take-off or landing with flaps. Rolling with less than 70% fuel will require no power, and some braking. Otherwise I've tested this model enough to be certain that it flies like the real thing. Everything works correctly and I recommend that you use autopilot for as many functions as possible, other than the final touch-down and/or taxiing.

The original version of this aircraft was designed for FS2004, and was nowhere near accurate with it's flight dynamics (it would not fly higher than about FL180). This version includes flight dynamic data that is known in the real-world. Do your own research and you will find that this plane is one of the best, based on the real-world data available. I have not invented anything in this aircraft, but simply worked the math to make her fly like she's supposed to. This includes the drag rate, lift scale, and engine power. Otherwise I'm sure you will find this plane a breeze to fly. Hopefully, you enjoy long-distance flights. Read the data available when you load the aircraft, before loading it, and you will learn what is needed.

Hello Douglas I like the Gulfstream 650 & 280 I also would to see these airplanes with the new glass panel and what would be a nice user friend repaint program Thanks Roland Tyler Tx

Hi Douglas, when will you change the cockpit instruments and panels so they look the real ones in a G550? I don't see how it will be possible -though- to mimic the PlaneView's Cursor Control Device, SV-PFD, EVS, INAV, HUD, EDS and synchronous running of those three CDU's of the FMS. I really want a more realistic looking G550 cockpit. Any chance you could create the G650 and G280? Thanks.
