I think the Gulstreams are the best looking aircraft but that 7X EASycockpit when it came out on the 7X looked mighty fine! How did it compare to comparable aircraft cockpits at the time and what is considered top of the line avionics now? G-650, Falcon 8X, Global (what is it now?) 7000?
Falcons and Gulfstream use the same avionics with minor differences. It’s Primus Epic. Falcon calls it EASy, Gulfstream calls it Plane View. I see a lot of ads for pilots where the requirements are “EASy or Gulfstream Type Prefferred.”

Ah...thanks Falcondrivr.
I didn't know the avionics suite was the same between two competing companies like Dassault and Gulfstream. That surprises me.

I love my Honeywell home thermostat—works great. My experience with their avionics made me happy to fly Collins.

Totally biased!

I can’t figure how to link it, but there’s a great video of the G7500 landing at Gstaad (LSGK) over on Linked In. The plane then went non-stop to Dubai.
