After the highly successful G650 Gulfstream announced the new ultra-long-range G650ER that can travel 7,500 nautical miles/13,890 kilometers at Mach 0.85 and 6,400 nm/11,853 km at Mach 0.90. This is an increase in range of up to 500 nm (926 km) over the original G650. The latest Gulfstream luxury jet sets a new world standard for performance.
“The G650ER provides our customers with greater mission flexibility and the longest range of any business jet,” said Scott Neal, senior vice president, Worldwide Sales and Marketing, Gulfstream. “It’s the only business aircraft in the world capable of traveling 7,500 nm. This opens up significant nonstop city pairs, including New York to Hong Kong, Dallas to Dubai and San Francisco to Delhi. G650ER owners in Dubai will be able to reach most of the contiguous United States. From Hong Kong, operators can connect with the Eastern Seaboard of the United States. Thanks to the G650ER, the world just got a little smaller.”
The G650ER will share the same cabin, avionics and systems as the G650 and is undergoing Federal Aviation Administration certification. Cruising at near supersonic speed (0.90 Mach) the G650ER will comfortably carry eight passengers. It also features digital audio and high-definition video equipment, 26-inch/66-centimeter widescreen televisions, convection oven, porcelain dinnerware, flatware and stemware with fitted storage.
“The G650ER provides the mission flexibility to fly longer routes at higher cruise speeds or carry heavier payloads on shorter missions,” says Gulfstream. The first deliveries is expected to be in the first quarter of next year. Gulfstream said the original G650 will continue to be offered as well.
