Head of State / Priority Transport

When the most important people in a government travel, there must be absolute certainty about the security, reliability, business suitability and communications capabilities of their aircraft. That’s why more than 40 countries on six continents have chosen Gulfstream aircraft to transport presidents and heads of state, VIPs and military advisers.

Gulfstream’s highly adaptable interiors allow modifications for user-specific configurations, including encrypted communications and command and control centers.

Since 1983, Gulfstream jets have been in service as high-priority U.S. government transport. Today, more than 30 specially designated Gulfstream aircraft transport U.S. cabinet officials, members of Congress, senior Department of Defense and other top-ranking military personnel.


  • Speed and time: Gulfstream’s newest large-cabin aircraft tout a high-speed cruise of Mach 0.90, which over 500 flight hours saves more than 50 hours compared to aircraft flying at Mach 0.80.
  • Ultralong range: With a maximum range of 7,500 nautical miles/13,890 kilometers, the G650ER provides more nonstop flights, allowing the aircraft to avoid refueling stops and arrive at destinations faster.
  • Gulfstream Cabin Experience: Gulfstream aircraft provide best-in-industry cabin features, beginning with panoramic windows, 100 percent fresh air and a low-altitude, quiet environment that enhances comfort and productivity.
  • Configuration options: Long, wide cabins provide room to design to specific needs, whether it’s a private stateroom, an aft galley or conference areas with high-speed internet capabilities.

For one country, two Gulfstream VIP aircraft mean a new level of quality.
