The G650 was introduced to the public on March 13, 2008 and will be Gulfstream’s largest, fastest and most expensive business jet when it goes into production.
The G650 will be powered by two Rolls-Royce BR725 turbofan engines and will be 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 will be equipped with a full kitchen and bar along with satellite phones and wireless internet.
The G650 will become the second business aircraft after the Falcon 7X to utilize flight controls that will be 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 it and the G650 is the size of the fuel tanks. This gives the G650ER a range of 7,500 NM. This extended range capability required no structural modifications.
