Gulfstream has manufactured two flagship products in the segment of ultra-long range jets: G550 and G650. The G550 has earned its reputation as the most reliable, best performing long-range business aircraft in the industry. With 100 percent fresh air, quiet cabin, and a very low cabin altitude, this aircraft offers an exceptionally comfortable and relaxing ride. The Gulfstream G550 ultra-long range business jet turned heads right from the start. This is a brawny aircraft with an international reach. Powered by enhanced Rolls-Royce BR710 turbofan engines, the G550 has a range of 6,750 nm 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.As you might expect, the G550 is equipped with the Gulfstream Plainview cockpit, the most advanced flight deck in business aviation. The cabin aboard the G550 combines productivity with exceptional comfort. It features up to four distinct living areas, three temperature zones, and choice of 12 floor plan configurations with seating for up to 18 passengers. Maintaining contact with the home office is easy thanks to a host of standard communication features: a fax machine, a printer, wireless local area network and satellite communications. As an option, consider Gulfstream's Broad Band Multi Link, which combines fast Internet-connection speeds with low operating costs.

 The G650 offers international business everything they expect from a top-tier business jet. The A/C will fly at cruise speeds of Mach 0.85 to 0.90, with maximum speed of Mach 0.925 and will have a range of up to 7,000 nm (13,000 km). It will be equipped with a full kitchen and bar and may be equipped with a variety of entertainment features including satellite phones and wireless Internet. The new jet will use the new Rolls-Royce BR725 engine producing a maximum thrust of 17,000 pounds-force (75.6 kN). Gulfstream plans to conduct the first flight of G650 later in 2009. The aircraft is scheduled for certification in 2011 and will enter into service in 2012.
