Flight testing is scheduled to begin this month of a Gulfstream V modified with a fly-by-wire system for controlling the spoilers. Elevator fly-by-wire testing is scheduled for later this year. Gulfstream launched a flight control research program in 2004 with the aim of exploring the potential of fly-by-wire technology on future business jets.
