Gulfstream V. G550 model, texture and sounds by Peter Brun. Corrected flight dynamics and data by Douglas E. Trapp. Cockpit and repaint by Per Neis.
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.
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.
The archive gulfstreamv.zip has 109 files and directories contained within it.

Having had the pleasure of using the real Gulfstream V in the past (as a passenger obviously) I was really looking forward to downloading this mod and seeing what I thought of this remake of the real thing. This take on the old V 6550 model was very impressive, with new textures and sounds introduced by the excellent Peter Brun.
Additionally, Douglas Trapp included new flight dynamics and data to the program which makes it fly even better than before. Lastly, Per Neis worked on the cockpit and made it look better than ever with a new lick of paint. But are these changes enough to make the system fun to use?
First off the installation is about as easy as it gets. It ensures that you can have easy access to your aircraft downloads quickly as much as anything else. The installation took me a matter of minutes and the configuration was the exact same – it was exceptionally easy to use.
The quality of the aircraft design, though, was very impressive, especially for a free mod. This does a great way of representing the real aircraft and whiles tit might not be perfect it’s about as good as you could expect – it does a great job of bringing the whole thing together.
The design is consistent and does a lot for making sure that it looks great and that it can really look the part. It’s not too obvious that this is just lots of textures slapped together – it all looks so professional.
The overall flight quality that you get when using this mod is deeply impressive, too. The one thing that I would note – as the designers themselves did – is that the flaps are quite extreme and the engines are maybe a tad overpowered. That being said, it’s nothing that would make me wary of using this mod or recommending it to someone else.
Just try and avoid going more than two notches when taking off or landing with the flaps out as it will probably be a bit too much to make it work in your favor!
Overall, though? Yeah I was hugely impressed with the work that was being introduced into the system. This looks absolutely exceptional and does a great job of making sure that everyone can get the kind of realism and performance they would expect from the Gulfstream itself.
