Gulfstream announces it has delivered the 400th aircraft (a G650ER) from the record-breaking, ultralong-range G650 family to a customer based in the United States.
The G650ER, which entered service 5 years ago, quickly gained recognition for its ability to connect far-flung cities at the fastest speeds. The G650ER offers passengers both style and comfort with the signature Gulfstream Cabin Experience, featuring 100 percent fresh air, the lowest cabin altitude in business aviation, quiet sound levels and 16 of the industry’s largest windows.
Gulfstream has delivered the first G500 in Europe.
The G650 can fly up to 7,000 nautical miles/12,964 kilometers at Mach 0.85 and 6,000 nm/11,112 km when flying faster at a high-speed cruise of Mach 0.90. The G650ER can fly up to 7,500 nm/13,890 km at the same long-range cruise speed and 6,400 nm/11,853 km at Mach 0.90. Both aircraft are capable of a near-supersonic maximum operating speed of Mach 0.925 and have a maximum cruise altitude of 51,000 feet/15,545 meters.

Collier Trophy and the title for the farthest, fastest business jet flight in history. We could not be more pleased to deliver the 400th aircraft in the G650 and G650ER fleet.”
