The Gulfstream 650 is not only the largest and fastest aircraft produced by Gulfstream Aerospace, but it is also the fastest civil aircraft in the world. It has a maximum operating speed of Mach .925 and cruising speed of Mach .85, as well as an ultra-large-cabin that is longer, wider and taller than that of any aircraft in its class.
Aside from outstanding take-off and landing performance, with a balanced field length of 6000 ft, the G650 has exceptional range. Covering over 7000 nmi at cruising speed, the aircraft allows a nonstop between any two civilized points on earth. The powerful twin Rolls Royce BR725 engines provide a maximum thrust of 75.6 kN but strikingly lower emissions, greater fuel efficiency and lower cabin noise levels than those of any aircraft in its class. The maximum cruising altitude of 51,000 ft further increases fuel efficiency and comfort.
The G650 is additionally the most technologically evolved business aircraft, with advanced flight controls and safety features such as Enhanced Vision System (EVS) II, Head-Up Display (HUD) II, and Synthetic Vision-Primary Flight Display (SV-PFD). The PlaneView II cockpit improves the pilot’s situational awareness and performance.
The living environment of the G650 may be configured from among 12 floor plans and allows up to 18 passengers. Entertainment features such as satellite phones and wireless internet are inclusive. This is arguably the most comfortable and spacious cabin environment to date for Gulfstream, as well as the most outstanding aircraft in its class for performance, safety, speed, and range.
