Transport Canada has given Gulfstream Aerospace, a General Dynamics subsidiary, Type Certificate (TC) Validation for the Gulfstream G550, G500, G450, G350 and GV aircraft.

The validation will allow Gulfstream operators to register any in-production Gulfstream aircraft in Canada.

The Federal Aviation Administration previously gave TC validation for G550 in 2003 and for G500, G450 and G350 in 2004.

Transport Canada had also certified Gulfstream’s other aircraft—G200, G150, G100, GIV, GIII, GIIB and GII in the past.

Transport Canada is responsible for transportation policies and programmes in Canada.
