Gulfstream G650ER Private Jet
Efficient use of time as you go further, and faster, to reach your destination.
Article By Steven R. Rochlin

 

Gulfstream  Gulfstream's newest flagship aeroplane, the G650ER, extends the nonstop reach of the industry's highest performance long-range business aircraft. Time is our most precious commodity as the G650ER makes the best use of you highly valuable productive time. Now you can travel upwards of 7500 nautical miles at a speed of up to Mach 0.90 thanks to a pair of Rolls-Royce BR725 A1-12 engines. The Gulfstream can carry eight passengers comfortably and in record time too. The G650ER boasts a maximum gross weight 4000 lbs. The additional range capability makes it possible for non-stop flying from Dubai to Atlanta or Hong Kong to most of the United States Eastern Seaboard.

Gulfstream G650ERIn today’s fast-paced international marketplace, the speed and quality of establishing business connections matters. If your mission includes flights half a world away, the G650ER offers the advantage of flying the fastest and longest routes possible by any business aircraft. No other platform in business aviation offers the combined utility of range, speed, performance and payload.

Gulfstream's G650ER cabin provides the ultimate blend of form and function. The choice of 12 predefined floorplans and the option to customize offers owners control of their environment. Wide seats and generous aisle spaces are benefits of the G650ER, and the sense of spaciousness is further enhanced by 16 signature panoramic windows. The G650ER cabin is replenished with 100% fresh air every two minutes. And with the lowest cabin altitude in the class, matched only by its sister ship, the Gulfstream G650, passenger heart and lungs can more easily oxygenate the blood, which reduces fatigue and ensures a more alert and refreshed arrival many time zones later. At a cruise altitude of 45,000 feet/13,716 meters, a G650ER cabin is pressurized to an altitude of 3700 feet. That cabin altitude is almost two times lower than commercial airlines.

Standard features include digital audio and high-definition video equipment, 26" widescreen televisions, a refrigerator with freezer, convection oven, porcelain dinnerware, flatware and stemware with fitted storage. The cabin of the Gulfstream G650ER is designed to allow passengers to intuitively interact with their environment. With the Gulfstream Cabin Management System (GCMS), passengers control temperature, lighting, window shades and entertainment devices with Apple iOS or Google Android touch-screen smart phones and tablets. Apple iPod touch units are provided to control the cabin, but the Gulfstream Cabin Management app is also available as a free mobile download for personal iPhone, iPad or Android devices, which allows passengers to save and recall preferences for subsequent flights.

Gulfstream G650ER Private JetThe Gulfstream-designed CabinView lets passengers track flight progress, displays points of interest and provides passenger briefings. And Cabin Essential ensures that even the most basic cabin amenities and creature comforts such as fresh water, power, communications and entertainment have a similar level of redundancy also built into essential flight systems. For communication needs, the G650ER is equipped with a seven-channel satellite phone system and a wireless local network that provides onboard printing and can be equipped with optional Broadband Multilink (BBML) high-speed Internet for the fastest Internet and e-mail use.
