This new record, like the 38 records before it, reflects the G650’s noteworthy speed and range. The aircraft arrived for the 2014 Singapore Airshow in a record breaking time of 14 hours and 6 minutes from Hawaii. It flew 5,909 nautical miles from Honolulu to Singapore International Airport on Feb 7 with an average speed of Mach 0.85, despite dealing with headwinds exceeding 100 knots.
“The G650’s speed and range truly make it a time machine, saving considerable time as clients travel around the world.” Said Scott Neal, senior vice president, worldwide sales and marketing, Gulfstream. Speed may be one of the top features, but the G650 has much more to offer. The cabin is the largest purpose-built business-jet cabin. Allowing clients to conduct conference calls, send emails or relax in pure comfort during flight. The cabin also includes wider seats, larger windows & more aisle room.
Once the National Aeronautic Association validates the new record, the flagship Gulfstream will have accumulated 39 milestones.
