It’s Not Just About Range: The Gulfstream G650 Exudes Quality and Innovation
December 20, 2020
The Gulfstream G650 is legendary for its range. The ultra-long-range jet is outfitted with dual Rolls-Royce BR725 engines and a sleek wing design that work together offer boundary-breaking performance. This minimizes traveler downtime and simplifies intercontinental trips to regions such as North America, The Caribbean, Asia and South America, making the G650 an ideal aircraft for seeing the world.
However, the G650 is not just a one-trick-pony. No matter how far you are going, the G650 will get you there faster and feeling more refreshed than just about any other aircraft. Its top speed of 600 knots is unsurpassed in the ultra-long-range class, even against newer competitors like the Bombardier Global 7500 and Dassault Falcon 8X. In the cabin, oxygen is completely replenished every two minutes and the G650 maintains the lowest pressurized cabin altitude of any business aircraft. In fact, the G650’s cabin altitude is so low that it is nearly half the cabin altitude of a typical commercial airliner and less than the elevation of Davos, Switzerland. This is important because exceptional interior altitude improves passenger blood circulation, which lowers fatigue and helps fight jet lag.
To further provide comfort for its maximum 15 passengers, each of the G650’s seats is positioned next to a Gulfstream signature panoramic oval window. Flexjet took the extra step of custom designing the G650 interiors as part of the LXi Cabin Collection. LXi cabins feature innovative layouts for entertaining and relaxing, bold wood veneers that add dimension and depth throughout, and textured leather details that make each cabin a uniquely crafted space.
A four-zone cabin configuration for meetings, dining, and relaxation presents a spacious escape. Indeed, the Flexjet G650 features a private entertainment area where clients can recline on a custom ottoman or catch up on the day’s news via a 42-inch flat-screen TV.
Pilots and crew favor the G650 for its advanced technology and performance. Gulfstream took a clean sheet approach in designing the aircraft and equipped it with fly-by-wire controls for smooth operation. The cockpit is highlighted by Gulfstream’s PlaneView II avionics suite, which comes with four large-screen LCD displays for cutting edge data visualization and maximum situational awareness. Passengers can control temperature, lighting and window shades through their smartphones and tablets via the intuitive Gulfstream Cabin Management System, as well as track their flight progress using the Gulfstream CabinView information system.
Combined into one package, the Flexjet G650’s refined interior, advanced technology and unmatched performance make this one of the most sought-after aircraft in the Flexjet fleet. This extraordinary aircraft delivers an exceptional experience every time on short trips, long flights and everywhere in between.
