Design work on the Galaxy (initially called the Astra Galaxy) began in the early 1990’s by Israeli Aircraft Industries (IAI) and was IAI’s entry into the Super Mid-Sized business jet market. General Dynamics acquired Galaxy Aerospace in 2001 and renamed the jet, the Gulfstream 200. Its cabin can comfortably seat eight passengers and comes with a galley and aft lavatory. By using a step-down aisle the cabin has 6.3 feet of headroom.
The Gulfstream 200 is powered by Pratt and Whitney PW306A engines. The Gulfstream 200 also feature an EFIS Collins Pro Line 4 cockpit with nonstop trans Atlantic and one-stop trans Pacific range.
The Gulfstream 200 first flew in 1997, received its certification in 1998.
