Design and development

Gulfstream G350
The G350 is a shorter range version of the G450, introduced in 2004. It has the same exterior appearance, as well as the PlaneView cockpit, but does not have EVS as standard equipment, although it is available as an option.

Gulfstream G450
The Gulfstream G450, an upgrade of the G400, was released to the market in 2003, and has increased performance. It has a "PlaneView" cockpit (which consists of 4 Honeywell 21 EFIS screens, and a Gulfstream-designed cursor control system), and an "Enhanced Vision System" (EVS), an infrared camera that displays an image of the view in front of the camera on a head up display. EVS permits the aircraft to land in lower-visibility instrument meteorological conditions than a non-EVS-equipped aircraft.
