Gulfstream Aerospace Gulfstream I

Grumman Aerospace Corporation began design in the mid-1950s of a twin-turboprop executive transport which was intended for a crew of two and 10-14 passengers in typical corporate versions: an alternative high-density layout could seat a maximum of 24 passengers. Designated Grumman G-159 Gulfstream I, this was a conventional low-wing monoplane with pressurised accommodation, retractable tricycle landing gear, and powered by two Rolls-Royce Dart turboprops. The prototype was flown for the first time on 14 August 1958.

In addition to the production of civil Gulfstream Is, Grumman also supplied nine TC-4C aircraft to the US Navy. Required for the training of crews to serve with Grumman A-6A Intruder squadrons, they are easily distinguished from standard Gulfstreams by having a bulbous nose radome. Two other Gulfstream Is were acquired by the US Coast Guard under the designation VC-4A, these being used as VIP transports.

Most of the 200 Gulfstream Is that were built went to customers in North America, but a number of these are now being converted to Gulfstream I-C configuration. This programme was initiated by Gulfstream American Corporation (now Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation) following the acquisition of Grumman's Gulfstream division. The conversion entails a fuselage 'stretch' of 3.25m to provide seating for a maximum 37 passengers, but is otherwise little different from the original Gulfstream I.

I flew s /n 1 GI for 14 years for Grumman Corp. Flight Transportation. Loved the airplane. It was fantastically reliable and decades ahead of its time. Those Dart engines were noisy, but bullet-proof...

Flew one evaluating it for a start-up airline, we were looking at the then new Pratt and Whitney engine, on the Brazilia and others. I remember parking G-1's from an oil company when I worked in Colorado an extremely loud engine.

New engines and a G-6 cockpit would make a great mid-range transport. With the planned stretches it would have been even better.

Both the Gulfstream I and Gulfstream II are more properly listed as "Grumman" products. Gulfstream did not take on a separate identity under that name until 1978. The Gulfstream III and later models do belong under "Gulfstream".

I flew the Gulfstream 159 for Conoco Oil Company in the late 70's early 80,s. We had three of them and they were a dream to fly, built like a tank, very comfortable and fast. It remains one of my favorite airplanes to have ever flown. And yes, just beautiful to look at.

Received a type rating in the late 70s on the G-1. The examiner on this flight was the legendary, Bill Conrad. He was a pilot on the Boeing 307 Stratoliner. A book could easily be written about his aviation experiences. He was
one of the gratest story tellers that I have ever met. I'm sure that anyone who ever met him would agree.

I was an enlisted crew member, and maintenance technician (AE)on the three TC-4Cs assigned to VA-128, stationed at NAS Whidbey Island. My time of service on the TC-4C was 8-71 to 6-75. The Grumman engineers made a "masterpiece" when they rolled this fine aircraft out of the hangar.

NASA at one time flew the high-time G-159A, Serial Number 098 in Houston, Texas at the Johnson Space Center. I accumulated 4,700 hours on it as Flight Engineer (the aircraft as certified only required two crew members, but NASA flew a third maintenance crewmember.) The aircraft's call sign was NASA 2, Reg. N2NA.

I got my G-1 type in 1979 and flew Serial #198. For 4 years we flew north & central America. Haveing previous experience in RR Dart engines (F-27 /F-227) I knew their strong & weak points. The aircraft was a good beginning for the Gulfstream corperate jets that followed. It flew well but required respect.

I flew the G-159 as the Navy /Marine TC-4C variant A-6 BN Trainer at MCAS Cherry Point, NC. One beautiful airplane that just wanted to fly; after a flight you always looked back at it while you were walking to the ops building.

I flew the Coast Guard's only VC4A in the early 70s for the CG's VIP unit in DC. What a great, reliable, efficient aircraft. What a mistake the CG made not buying this aircraft to replace the aging HU16E Albatross instead of the HU25A Falcon jet.
