The Gulfstream II introduced twin Rolls-Royce jet engines and a swept wing design to replace the turboprop powered Gulfstream I, while maintaining its airport performance, reliability, and other operational advantages.

Gulfstream’s original corporate jet, the cabin offers seating for 10-14 passengers, with impressive range of up to 4,000 miles.

The IIB debuted in 1981 with wider, wingleted wings, increased maximum takeoff weight, and instruments used on the Gulfstream III; the II SP included the addition of Aviation Partners winglets.

Today, all Gulfstream II models are required to install Stage 3 noise compliant engines or other noise-reducing equipment to operate in the contiguous 48 states after December 31, 2015.
