The Gulfstream G550: a New Standard in Aviation
The Gulfstream G550 is an award winning, ultra-long range jet powered by the superior capability of Rolls-Royce BR710 turbo fan engines. As the fastest business jet in its class, it has raised the world standard for speed and range. In fact, it set 40 city pair flight speed records in its first five years of service including a 14.5 hour nonstop flight from Seoul, South Korea to Orlando, Florida.
The Gulfstream's cabin pairs productivity with relaxation. The choice of twelve different floor plans with seating for up to eighteen people allows for greater customization. Up to four separate living areas and three temperature zones facilitate traveling in comfort and style. In addition, the Gulfstream G550 features an array of telecommunication devices, including optional Broadband Multi Link, making it easy to stay in contact with your base of operations.
The cockpit of the Gulfstream G550 is equipped with the most advanced flight system in business aviation, the Gulfstream PlaneView. Not only does PlaneView feature the best of today's aviation technology, it also allows for the incorporation of features that have not yet been created. A joint effort of Gulfstream and Honeywell International, this system displays crucial flight data on dynamically arranged 14 inch liquid crystal screens. Through extensive testing and feedback from experienced pilots, engineers created a flight system that minimized screen clutter, display colors and onscreen icons for heightened situational awareness.
The Gulfstream G550's advanced engine performance allows it to reach a long-range cruise speed of Mach 0.80 and travel for a distance of 7,768 miles without refueling. Cruising at an altitude of 51,000 feet grants this aircraft the ability to avoid inclement weather and commercial air traffic. Because the Gulfstream G550 can travel long distances non-stop, it makes it the perfect choice for business people who routinely fly internationally.
