Just under six years after the first unit entered service in 2012, the 300th G650 has been delivered. The G650 family includes the regular model, which can fly up to 7,000 nautical miles at Mach 0.85, and the ER (extended range) variant, which adds another 500 nautical miles to that range. Both models can achieve a maximum operating speed of Mach 0.925.
“The continued popularity and demand for the G650 affirms its position as the leader in the ultra-long-range segment,” said Mark Burns, president of Gulfstream. “The aircraft amassed an impressive backlog of orders when we announced it in 2008, and that backlog is still strong today. The introduction of the G650 was a turning point – not just for Gulfstream, but for the industry as a whole. We set out to change the game, and ultimately, we did just that.”
The G650 series features customizable cabin configurations with up to four living areas, 100% fresh air and 16 panoramic windows.
