The Gulfstream G550 large-cabin is an ultra-long range business jet. Less than two weeks after it entered service, a G550 flew nonstop from Seoul, South Korea, to Orlando, Fla., covering the 7,301 nautical mile (13,521 km) distance in 14.5 hours and setting a city pair record. It would go on to establish 40 city-pair records in its first five years of service. The G550 has a range of 6,750 nm (12,501 km) at Mach 0.80 and a high-speed cruise capability of Mach 0.87. With its long legs, the G550 easily links Washington, D.C., with Dubai, London with Singapore and Tokyo with Paris.
The G550 has the first fully synchronous triple Flight Management System (FMS), the Gulfstream Signature Cursor Control Device (CCD), which improves the way that pilots interact with the PlaneView avionics, and the latest in Head-Up Display technology integrated with the next-generation Gulfstream Enhanced Vision System (EVS) II™, which captures pictures of the environment and presents the pilot with a clear picture of runway markings, taxiways and surrounding terrain at night or in the worst weather conditions. The cabin aboard the G550 combines productivity with exceptional comfort. It features up to four distinct living areas, three temperature zones, and a choice of 12 floor plan configurations with seating for up to 18 passengers. You can charter this aircraft from JetOptions. See the G550 and other business aircraft videos here: Gulfstream G550
