The Gulfstream G100, formerly known as the Astra SPX, is an Israel Aircraft Industries-manufactured twin-engine business jet, now produced for Gulfstream Aerospace. The United States Air Force designation for the G100 is C-38 Courier. The original 1125 Astra was replaced in by the Astra SP, announced in 1989 of which 37 were built. This variant was renamed G100 from September 2002 following Gulfstream's acquisition of Galaxy Aerospace, which held the Astra certifications, in May 2001. The Operating costs of the Gulfstream G100 are very economical compare to other business jets of this size. It can fly long range and transatlantic routes due to the optional removable tank that is located in the rear baggage compartment. The main purpose of this aircraft is for some Airline Training and Charter.
