2The Gulfstream G550 large-cabin, ultra-long range business, private jet turned heads right from the start. Less than two weeks after it entered service, a G550 flew nonstop from Seoul, South Korea, to Orlando, Fla., covering the 7,301 nautical-mile distance in 14.5 hours and setting a city pair record. In fact, it would go on to establish 40 city-pair records in its first five years of service.
This is a brawny aircraft with an international reach. Powered by enhanced Rolls-Royce BR710 turbofan engines, The G550 has a range of 6,750 nm at Mach 0.80 and a high-speed cruise capability of Mach 0.87. With its long legs, the G550 easily links Washington, D.C., with Dubai, London with Singapore and Tokyo with Paris.
The Gulfstream makes no sacrifices when it comes to cabin space, speed, range, and reliability. It meets every requirement a world traveler could have for a private jet of its novelty and quality.
