Gulfstream built more than 600 G550s since the model’s first announcement 20 years ago. Pixabay

Mark Burns said “The G550 set the standard for subsequent aircraft and the industry.” That’s not simply Burns’ opinion as Gulfstream’s president. The popular G550 in 2003 earned the aircraft’s development team the coveted Robert J. Collier Trophy, awarded annually “for the greatest achievement in aeronautics or astronautics in America, with respect to improving the performance, efficiency, and safety of air or space vehicles, the value of which has been thoroughly demonstrated by actual use during the preceding year.”

The aerospace giant last week announced it had sold the final position of the G550 aircraft that’s slated for delivery in 2021. Gulfstream has to date delivered more than 600 copies of the aircraft. First announced in 2000, the G550 entered service in 2003 as the launch platform for the transformational Gulfstream PlaneView flight deck. Its range and high-altitude capabilities earned the aircraft more than 55 speed records. The G550 is capable of cruise speeds of Mach 0.90.

Burns was quick to point out that, “While manufacturing of the G550 will end, our industry-leading support of the aircraft will continue. With more than 30 company-owned and factory-authorized service centers on five continents as well as the ability to produce and procure parts, we are well-prepared to continue offering G550 owners the highest level of support.”

2021 Mini Countryman

Mini continues to charm for the 2021 model year. The British brand owned by BMW returns a 6-speed manual transmission to its small lineup, further enhancing its reputation for quirky urban cars that are fun to drive but offer limited practicality. 

From the Union Jack taillights and rear barn doors to the circular design features adorning the inside and outside, Mini stands out amid a sea of homogeneous small crossovers and vanishing compact cars and hatchbacks.

Summer Mood House

This beautiful single family house located in Barcelona, Spain, has been designed in 2020 by Egue Y Seta.

Traveling is always fun, but maybe, in this house, “staying home”, isn´t so bad after all. The sunbed, the palm tree, the cocktail and the pool dips were never so close to the living room; and here, the “all inclusive” includes everything that might come out of that fabulous live-in Kitchen, its wine celler or the outdoor barbecue towards the south end of the yard. In this home, the one thing you´ll still miss compared to an authentic holiday, might only be the suitcases or the jetlag (and that can be easily fixed)…If you prefer, we might also say it in a foreign language so to help you set yourself in #SummerMode.

This Cessna 208B Caravan is now the largest totally-electric aircraft to fly.Courtesy Magnix

Electric propulsion designer Magnix, working alongside engineering and flight test specialist AeroTEC, said the Magnix Magni/500-powered Cessna 208B Caravan they launched last week is now the largest all-electric, zero emissions, passenger or cargo aircraft ever to fly. The Caravan test bed aircraft lifted off from Grant County International Airport in Moses Lake, Washington, for a 30-minute flight with the Magni 750 hp electric motor that AeroTec installed to replace the airplane’s standard Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6 turboprop that generates 867 shp.

The two companies said their modified Caravan confirms aircraft of this type and size can feasibly operate over short routes. They believe the electric Caravan could be ready for the marketplace by late next year. A story in the Seattle Times on Friday however, took a slightly more pragmatic look at the aircraft. “The flight does not herald the near-term introduction of all-electric, passenger-carrying Cessnas. The cabin of the plane was obstructed by two tons of lithium-ion batteries and cooling equipment, with little room for passengers. It certainly wasn’t a cabin setup that would make any sense commercially.”

Magnix also last year powered the first all-electric seaplane flight when a Magni/500 powerplant was mounted on a deHavilland Beaver owned by Vancouver, British Columbia-based Harbour Air.
