One of the most sensitive missions in the military involves the safe and timely movement of VIPs, especially throughout the AOR. When you consider the extremely hectic lifestyle of an O-10 General Officer, you need to plan on them being in the AOR one morning and back at the Pentagon the next.
To do this, you’ve got to have a jet with tremendous range and speed. Oh, but it also has to be able to operate out of sparsely equipped airfields, i.e., with minimal ground support services.
The three largest military branches (Army, Navy, Air Force) settled on the Gulfstream GV for this platform, which is the C-37A in military nomenclature.
In standard cruise configuration, the C-37 is capable of 5,500nm, and in long-range cruise with only eight passengers, the C-37 can make for 7,500nm. Where does this get you? From Andrews AFB, a VIP can travel without stops to Japan to the west, Turkey or Greece to the east.
The current inventory breakdown of C-37A/Bs is:
● U.S. Army: 3
● U.S. Navy: 4
● U.S. Air Force: 13
It is not only the size range and performance of the C-37 that makes it appealing (FL510 ceiling); it is the passenger count. Four-star Generals bring a large entourage, including a security detail and their staff officers.
