The G650 was introduced to the public on March 13, 2008, and represented Gulfstream’s largest, fastest and most expensive business jet at the time of production.
The G650 is powered by two Rolls-Royce BR725 turbofan engines and is able to travel non-stop for 7,000 nautical miles, with speeds up to Mach 0.90. The cockpit features a PlaneView II avionics suite with Synthetic Vision System and a head-up display (HUD). The cabin is equipped with a full kitchen and bar along with satellite phones and wireless internet.
The G650 became the second business aircraft after the Falcon 7X to utilize flight controls that are completely fly-by-wire with no mechanical control between pilot and flight surfaces.
The G650’s maiden flight was on November 25, 2009.
The G650ER was introduced at EBACE 2014. The main difference between the G650ER and the G650 is the size of the fuel tanks. This gives the G650ER a range of 7,500 nautical miles and required no structural modifications.
