The Gulfstream 200 was one of the first private jets in the Gulfstream series, jets that would become top competitors in the super-midsize category. The newly-formed Galaxy Aerospace Corp, a division of Israel Aviation Industries (IAI), became a major contender in the private jet category with the Gulfstream 200; this jet continues to compete today with the more recent G450 and G550. The Gulfstream 200 has everything that could be desired in a private jet: great range, cabin size, and speed.The cabin of the Gulfstream 200 can be configured to hold anywhere between eight and nineteen seats. The cabin itself is 24.4 feet long, 7.2 feet wide and 6.3 feet high. Optional additions include a radio phone, entertainment systems, and interior design upgrades. There are power outlets available for any piece of office equipment in addition to an outlet for each passenger. There is 125 cubic feet of baggage space available in an external compartment, able to contain up to 2,400 pounds. An added bonus of the Gulfstream 200, having been designed in the extreme temperatures of Israel, is its capacity to maintain a cool cabin. According to Galaxy Aircraft Corp, the Gulfstream 200 can cool the cabin to 75ºF on a 113ºF day. Both the cabin and the cockpit have separate climate controls, and the air in the temperature control system continually provides the passengers with fresh air instead of recirculated air.
