This approval allows the G150 to operate at airports with an approach angle of up to 6 degrees. Most airports have an approach angle of 3.5 degrees or less.

Several airports worldwide require steep approach certification to land at their facility due to terrain, obstacles or local noise ordinances. They include: Lugano in Switzerland; Sion in Switzerland; Stephenville International in Newfoundland, Canada; Marseille Provence in Marignane, France; and Chambery in Le Viviers du Lac, France.

The G150 is the first Gulfstream aircraft to receive steep approach certification from the FAA and EASA. “These FAA and EASA certifications allow our Gulfstream G150 operators around the world greater flexibility, particularly the operators in Europe,” said Pres Henne, senior vice president, Programs, Engineering and Test.
