The Gulfstream G200 mid size corporate jet is built by Israel Aircraft Industries and was originally marketed and supported by subsidiary Galaxy Aerospace Inc, which was acquired by Gulfstream in May 2001. Design work on the IAI-1126 Galaxy (initially called the Astra Galaxy and later renamed G200 on Gulfstream’s take-over) began in the early 1990s and formal program launch was announced in September 1993. In 1995 a co-production arrangement was terminated that would have seen Yakovlev in Russia responsible for the design and manufacture of the Galaxy’s fuselage, while IAI would be the main contractor responsible for final assembly, integration and marketing. Subsequently SOGERMA of France was selected to manufacture production Galaxy fuselages and tails.
