The G650 – Speed and grace paired with style and comfort.
Enjoy The World Standard at its best.

Innovation and excellence have taken flight in the Gulfstream G650.

Gulfstream engineers partnered with a customer advisory board to envision an aircraft that would set a new standard in business travel. Working from that input, engineers rejected the status quo with a clean-sheet design. They pushed for more performance in every aspect. With the G650’s long, unfettered wing, they redefined how air flows over an aircraft wing, creating a highly efficient airfoil that delivers speed and an incredibly smooth ride.

What Gulfstream delivers in the G650 is a jet that flies at more than 92 percent of the speed of sound for thousands of miles with fly-by-wire precision. That same design innovation created a quieter, roomier, more adaptable cabin teeming with advanced technology.

The Gulfstream G650 Range

back to top Time Saved Is Productivity Gained

At a long-range cruise speed of Mach 0.85, the Gulfstream G650 flies 7,000 nautical miles/12,964 kilometers nonstop with eight passengers. Los Angeles to London is more than 30 minutes faster and New York to Tokyo almost an hour closer compared to other large-cabin aircraft.

The G650 makes once-distant cities all part of a day’s work, and with the lowest pressurized cabin altitude of any business aircraft, passengers arrive feeling refreshed and ready for whatever opportunities lay ahead.

  • 0.85 Mach
  • 8 Passengers
  • 7,000 Range (NM)
Range with 8 passengers, 4 crew, NBAA IFR reserves. Actual range will be affected by ATC routing, operating speed, weather, outfitting options and other factors.
…the G650 is the biggest, fastest, most luxurious, longest range and most technologically advanced jet — by far — that Gulfstream has ever built. And they did it all on schedule while developing the brand-new super midsize G280 at the same time. To say that Gulfstream is on a roll is an understatement. Robert Goyer in Flying Magazine, September 2013

The G650 Interior

Wider and Brighter

An 8 foot 6 inch /2.59 meter-wide cabin, the largest in its class, helps create an exquisitely comfortable environment for 18 passengers.

Sixteen large Gulfstream panoramic windows, each 28 by 20.5 inches/71 by 52 centimeters, allow abundant sunlight into the cabin, even in the galley. Every window has been repositioned higher on the fuselage to maximize viewing comfort.

Explore the cabin virtually to discover why the Gulfstream G650 is in a class by itself.

Creature Comforts Tailor Made

A longer, wider cabin and the choice of 12 floorplans offer more design configurations for meetings, entertaining and relaxing. A convection oven, large ice drawers and fitted storage for flatware and crystal increase dining options. After dinner, relax in a handcrafted leather recliner. Or retreat to a private stateroom. The choice is yours.

The wing is so sexy, it’s so mind-boggling cool, I can’t stand it. Other wings look like Popsicle sticks by comparison. I get sweaty palms just thinking about it. Heidi Wood, Aerospace/Defense Senior Equity Analyst, Morgan Stanley New York, New York, in a 2011 interview for Business & Commercial Aviation

Climb High, Breathe Easy

Engineers considered every element while designing the G650, even the air passengers breathe. The G650 has the lowest cabin altitude of any business jet and replenishes 100 percent fresh air every two minutes.

At a cruise altitude of 41,000 feet/12,497 meters, the cabin is pressurized to a comfortable 3,000 ft/914 m. That altitude is more than twice as low as commercial airlines and significantly better than any non-Gulfstream aircraft in its class. Lower cabin altitude means the heart and lungs don’t work as hard to oxygenate the blood, which reduces fatigue and ensures that upon arrival, passengers are more refreshed and alert.

The G650 Connectivity

back to top Business Accelerated

Traveling at near the speed of sound is one way to increase the pace of business.

High-speed connectivity is another. The Gulfstream G650 offers a variety of ways to stay connected, whether with the Gulfstream Broadband Multilink high-speed data system, two multichannel satellite communications systems or a wireless local network that provides onboard printing, additional Internet access and phone service.

Dual media servers, high-definition video source equipment and a cabin audio system also keep business on track, even at Mach 0.925.

Form, Function and Personal Touch

Every detail of the G650 interior was designed to create an atmosphere that intuitively provides the utmost control and comfort. The Gulfstream Cabin Management System (GCMS) synchronizes with Apple iOS or select Google Android smartphones and tablets to provide touch-screen control for temperature, lighting, window shades and entertainment options. Apple iPod touches or Google Android devices are provided as cabin controls, but GCMS also can be saved to a free mobile application on a passenger’s iPhone, iPad or Android device, which allows a passenger to save and recall preferences for a subsequent flight.

The Gulfstream-designed CabinView lets passengers track flight progress, displays points of interest and provides passenger briefings.

The G650 Speed

back to top Flirting With The Supersonic

Sleek, pristine wings allow the Gulfstream G650 to fly like no other competing business jet ever has. Gulfstream engineers redefined how the wings interact with the surrounding air, which significantly reduces drag and increases speed and range.

Take a look at the highly swept G650 wing, and realize what isn't there―no vortex generators to disrupt the natural airflow over the wing, no leading-edge devices required by other aircraft to improve slow-speed handling qualities and no exposed flap hinges and flap tracks that cause drag. Those devices slow the aircraft, reduce range and generate noise in the cabin.

Pair this uniquely engineered wing with newly designed, higher thrust Rolls-Royce BR725 engines, and the G650 achieves unprecedented performance. The G650 reaches a Maximum Mach Operating (MMO) speed of 0.925 and handles superbly at low speeds. It’s just one more example of intelligent design from Gulfstream.

The G650 Cockpit

Gulfstream G650

The PlaneView™ Cockpit

Consider all the data a pilot must process while streaking close to the sound barrier. Now think about the most user-friendly way to provide that complex information. In the Gulfstream G650, the PlaneView II cockpit provides layers of cutting-edge technology in streamlined displays, helping pilots think faster than they fly. Gulfstream-designed Cursor Control Devices (CCDs) put more data at a pilot’s fingertips. The side-mounted cursor controls allow pilots to select and scroll through data on the multifunction flight displays, giving them improved information ownership and increased situational awareness.

Improving On The Human Eye

Technology can improve performance, and in aviation, that includes safety. A nose-mounted infrared camera, part of the Gulfstream Enhanced Vision System (EVS) II, allows pilots to see what the human eye cannot by providing more detailed images of airports and surrounding terrain at night and in low-visibility conditions.

EVS images also can be routed to a Head-Up Display (HUD), which allows the pilot to review data from a transparent screen in his or her forward field of vision. Synthetic Vision blends three-dimensional color images of terrain, obstacles and runways with instrument readings on the pilot’s Primary Flight Display, a combination that creates a more easily visualized landing approach for pilots, courtesy of the most advanced business aviation cockpit in the air.

Fly-By-Wire

Gulfstream further pushes the technology envelope by equipping the G650 with a computer-controlled, highly redundant fly-by-wire flight system, which, working in concert with the pilot or on full automatic, provides measured, minute adjustments that create smoother flights and increase passenger comfort.
