Gulfstream introduced the 3rd member of the successful Gulfstream family, the GIII, in 1980 as an upgraded version of the GII and belonging to the same category of Large Jets. The GIII offers a largely improved performance thanks to an overall redesign, including the increase of the length of the wings and the addition of 5-foot winglets, serving to reduce drag and increase efficiency. Consequently, the GIII achieves a significantly greater range than its predecessor, while maintaining the exceptional reliability for which Gulfstream aircraft are renowned. The GIII features an extremely spacious stand-up cabin, that typically caters to 12-14 passengers in its executive seating configuration but certain variations can accommodate up to 19. Excelling in every department, from comfort to performance, the GIII is a first-rate business jet that is still capable of providing an excellent service.
