Gulfstream G650 Family Twinjet

Gulfstream Aerospace has just delivered the 400th G650/650 ER jet - just five years after the first of the jet line entered service. 

“Business jet travelers the world over have long recognized the G650ER as the leading combination of speed and range in the business aviation sector,” said Gulfstream president Mark Burns. “Its achievements and accolades have only mounted since its introduction, including 100-plus city-pair speed records, the prestigious Robert J. Collier Trophy, and the title for the farthest, fastest business jet flight in history. We could not be more pleased to deliver the 400th aircraft in the G650 and G650ER fleet.”

Equipped with safety features such as the Enhanced Flight Vision System (EFVS) which allows authorized pilots the ability to land in low-visibility conditions and the option to customize up to four living spaces that can comfortably hold 11-18 passengers, the G650 and 650ER set the standards for safety and comfort in the industry. 

Since entering service just five years ago, the G650 family “quickly gained recognition for its ability to connect far-flung cities at the fastest speeds,” the company said. “The G650ER offers passengers both style and comfort with the signature Gulfstream cabin experience, featuring 100 percent fresh air, the lowest cabin altitude in business aviation, quiet sound levels and 16 of the industry’s largest windows.”

The twin-engine G650 sells at an average of $50 million and has a range up to 7,000 nm or 12,964 km at Mach 0.85, and the G650ER expands that range to 7,500nm/13890 km at the same cruise speed. Both jets have an Mmo of Mach 0.925, which is currently the top speed for all civil aircraft in production.
