Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. started in the late 1950s when Grumman Aircraft Engineering Co. a company known for military aircraft production, developed a marketable business aircraft at its manufacturing facilities in Bethpage N.Y. The aircraft was named after the Gulfstream (GI), the current that flows along the coast of Florida. The GI could sit 12 passengers comfortably and had maximum speed of 350 mph (563 kmph) at 25,000 feet and a range of 2,200 miles. At the beginning of the company, the official of the company separated the company’s civil and military aircraft production to improve efficiency. Today, the company still focuses on producing products for the government and military use. Almost 40 countries operate Gulfstream jets. The products the company currently still has are the following aircraft: G150, G280, G350, G450, G500, G550, and G650. For years, Gulfstream aircraft has been adapted for government VIP transport and special missions use.
