Gulfstream Aerospace last month celebrated the 50th anniversary of the first flight of the Grumman Gulfstream I turboprop twin. According to the Savannah, Ga.-based company, the GI “laid the foundation for the future family of Gulfstream aircraft.” It received FAA certification on May 21, 1959, and was in production for 10 years. Grumman built 200 GIs, and about one-third of them are still in service, Gulfstream said.
