Gulfstream knows luxury jets, and for the swanky G550 business jet, they have ‘pulled out all the stops’, so to speak! The Gulfstream G550 is an ultra-long range luxury business jet charter that has been setting records since its inception, beginning with a nonstop flight from Seoul, South Korea to Orlando, Florida in 14.5 hours, just two weeks after it entered service. This model certainly stands out among other private jet charters!
In fact, the G550 Gulfstream luxury jet established around 40 city-pair records within its first five years of service, not too shabby for a $50 million dollar advancement in aviation! Don’t worry, it is available for charter for far less, and there are always light jet charters and medium jet charters for smaller trips. The G550 jet effortlessly links Washington D.C. with Dubai, London with Singapore and Tokyo with Paris, removing the angst of commercial air travel from business trips.
This international luxury jet boasts enhanced Rolls-Royce BR710 turbofan engines, and cruises at Mach 0.80 with a high-speed cruise capacity of Mach 0.87, that is a heart-racing 662 miles per hour! Why isn’t there a luxury jet equivalent to auto racing?
The cabin of this business jet charter is lavish and loaded, blending productivity with exceptional comfort. There are four separate functional spaces, three temperature zones and 12 floor plan configurations to transport up to 18 passengers comfortably. Time spent in transit can effectively be used to conduct business, as with other aircraft charter options. There are even interior designs by Versace available for the G550 jet!
The Gulfstream G550 is completely equipped with the most advanced flight deck available for business aviation. The PlaneView cockpit is based on the Honeywell Primus Epic architecture and display system. This progressive system presents critical flight information via a 14-inch liquid crystal display.
The PlaneView cockpit is also filled with Gulfstream’s newest avionics achievements, including the first fully synchronous triple Flight Management System, Signature Cursor Control Device to simplify how pilots interact with the software, and Head-Up Display technology integrated with Enhanced Vision System II, to grab pictures of the environment and present them to the pilot along with a crystal clear picture of runway markings and taxiways in all lighting and weather conditions. In the realm of premium air travel, Gulfstream ranks in the top!
