The first G150 jet aircraft developed at the Israel Aircraft Industries (IAI) manufacturing facility in Tel Aviv, Israel has been introduced.

The G150 uses M.C. Gill Corporation products, including finished floor panels that were machined by its subsidiary, M.C. Gill Corporation Europe Ltd, in Northern Ireland. These detailed panels have carbon skins with Nomex® honeycomb core, giving them the perfect combination of strength and light weight in this application.

The G150 can reach speeds of up to Mach .85 and altitudes of 45,000 feet, well above commercial traffic and weather. At a long-range cruise speed of Mach .75, the G150 can fly four passengers nonstop up to 2,700 nautical miles, longer than any other aircraft in its class. This distance is equivalent to a Los Angeles to New York, London to Moscow or Rio de Janeiro to Santiago journey.

Gulfstream Aerospace, a subsidiary of General Dynamics, teamed with IAI to create this wide-cabin, high-speed G150 business jet aircraft. The G150 aircraft remains on schedule for customer deliveries in the third quarter of 2006.

The contract to provide flooring for the G150 was awarded to MC Gill in November 2004 with the first shipset scheduled to be delivered at the end of the Month.
