We Excel at Raising the Standard

Excellence doesn’t come easy. It’s a quest that consumes those of us who work at Gulfstream.

Whether we’re designing a cabin, installing avionics, performing a maintenance inspection or joining wing to fuselage, our customers—and our responsibility to them—are never far from mind.

But the work is worth it.

Our commitment to being the best has driven us to set world records, claim industry firsts, establish a reputation for safety and provide unparalleled product support.

It’s compelled us to design an aircraft that can circle the globe in less than 48 hours. It’s helped us develop heretofore unheard of safety features such as Gulfstream Enhanced Vision System and Emergency Descent.

And most importantly, it’s ensured that we deliver on our promises. We do what we say, regardless of the difficulty, because that’s what has made us The World Standard® in business aviation.

To paraphrase the famous French philosopher Voltaire, “Perfect is the enemy of good.” That very well may be.

But our never-ending quest for perfection brings us closer to something else. As American football coach Vince Lombardi said, “If we chase perfection, we can catch excellence.”

Our employees pursue perfection every day. Each and every one of them has made a commitment to giving you the best possible products and services.

Of our more than 13,000 employees, nearly 3,000 have continued their quest for perfection at Gulfstream for more than 10 years. Another nearly 1,200 have been doing so for more than 25. And one person has continued his unyielding pursuit of excellence for 50 years without interruption.

And that is how the people at Gulfstream achieve excellence every single day, in every single pursuit.

So, with all due respect to Voltaire, we’d prefer to abide by Lombardi’s adage. We’ve been chasing perfection for 55 years. And you’ve reaped the rewards.

We have no intention of stopping now.
