Gulfstream G550 deliveries have reached the 550 mark. “This milestone delivery affirms the continued demand for the G550, one of the most dependable and sought-after aircraft in the world today,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream.
“The G550’s best-in-class range and payload have earned it a lasting reputation as a versatile aircraft for business aviation and an ideal platform for special missions.”
The G550 has a range of 6,750 nautical miles with eight passengers and four crew. It can fly as high as 51,000ft, and as fast as Mach 0.885.
“The only aircraft in service today that fly farther than the G550 are our own Gulfstream G650 and G650ER,” said Burns.
“The G550 was also the first to feature our award-winning PlaneView flight deck, which quickly became the new ideal in business aviation. The aircraft’s technological and safety advances even led the G550 to be awarded the prestigious Robert J Collier Trophy.”
