Gulfstream delivers 300th G650
Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. recently delivered the 300th aircraft in the Gulfstream G650 family. This milestone comes just over five years after the aircraft entered service in December 2012.
“The continued popularity and demand for the G650 affirms its position as the leader in the ultra-long-range segment,” said Mark Burns, president, 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 is the fastest large-cabin, non-supersonic aircraft to circumnavigate the globe, having flown westbound around the world in a record-setting 41 hours and 7 minutes, claiming 22 citypair speed records along the way.
In late 2017, the G650ER proved its performance capabilities with a worldwide record streak, setting five records in six days, including New York to Paris and Tokyo to New York. Together, the aircraft have set 70 city-pair records.
The G650 can fly up to 7,000 nautical miles/12,964 kilometers when flying at Mach 0.85. The extended-range variant, the G650ER, can fly up to 7,500 nm/13,890 km at the same long-range cruise. Both aircraft are capable of a near-supersonic maximum operating speed of Mach 0.925.
