Fancy!  Can you get Netflix on that stuff?

Look at those engine instruments! 

Is that an iPhone holder?  Have you done an ROI analysis on those upgrades.  :)

That has to be the nicest shrike on the planet, congrats, that is a job well done!

Lol - I knew you true Commander guys would appreciate this Shrike commitment. Over 4 years in the making. Just canít help myself. More fun than a Gulfstream G500.

Corey - I will confess, I donít fly VFR that much and the canyon kinda snuck up on me. No way to turn off the ADSB-B in time to fly under the bridge!

Netflix? Now there is a fantastic idea Steve!  I havenít figured out what it will do quite yet. Might need a satphone with 223 gallons - I can now go 1/2 as far as a 980 in twice the time!

Once they get the STEC 3100 AP fully ready Don, Iím in. The ultimate Shrike shall get the care and feeding she deserves!

Sooooooowheeeeeeet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Quality takes time, right?

So which is better the Shrike or the Star?


I want you all to know that I own and fly a Gulfstream G840!  G840 is bigger number than a G700!

Killer panel, Bruce!
Slumming it in the turboprop world - so you don't have to.

Thanks Ray and Adam!  I still have a ways to go before itís ďdone.Ē  Kent - itís going to be years until Gulfstream again offers a higher number than 840.  But then you can always buy a 1000 ...

Different animals the 500S vs. 601P for sure. The 601P is fun but, without an engine monitor and an aux tank, it has to stop to go more than 4 hours so they are the same speed on a long trip, FL to IL, for example.  Iíll have to report back with more detail.
