G600 Iron Bird First Flight

In the Gulfstream labs, the G600 iron bird tests flight controls, mechanical systems, landing gear, brakes and hydraulics. With the iron bird, engineers can simulate taxi, takeoff and landing as well as maneuvers and transitions at altitude and airspeed. In Feb. 2016, the G600 iron bird completed its first flight and set in motion the testing and validation required for the G600s actual first flight.
