10 Reasons Why The Gulfstream G650ER Is The Best Way To Fly

If you're going to fly, you might as well do it in style. Gulfstream knows how to make that happen, and with their newly certified G650ER, you can fly in style even further than before. Here are 10 reasons why it's the best way to get from A to B, whether you're sitting in the cockpit or riding in the back.

1) Get places, fast

In a hurry to get somewhere? Push the thrust levers up and watch the Machmeter climb all the way to 0.925. The G650/650ER is Gulfstream's fastest business jet, and with a top speed like that, about the only thing that can keep up with you is...sound.



2) 7,500 nautical mile range

New York to Hong Kong. Dallas to Dubai. San Fransisco to Delhi. The G650 has serious legs to get you places.



3) Full kitchen and bar

If you're flying that far nonstop, you're going to need something to eat. Why not take a kitchen with you?



4) Rolls Royce BR725 engines

There's no shortage of power here, with a combined 33,800 pounds of thrust.



5) Up to 18 passengers

While you're up front flying to your next exotic destination, your 18 closest friends can be in the back of the plane enjoying this.



6) Swept wings that just look fast

You want your plane to look fast, and the G650's 36 degree wing sweep makes it happen. In fact, it has 9 degrees more sweep than the Gulfstream V.



7) The cockpit

Who won't want to sit left seat in this?



8) Enhanced Vision System

EVS helps you see the runway, even when you can't see the runway. And with the ability to display enhanced vision on the HUD, you don't even need to look down.



9) Cabin altitude that feels like you're on the ground

When you're cruising at FL410, your cabin can be pressurized as low as 3,000 feet. That's more than twice as low as most commercial airliners.



10) 8 iconic oval cabin windows per side

The G650 has more of Gulfstream's iconic windows than any previous model. And with 8 windows per side, even if you're not sitting in the cockpit, you still have one of the best views in the world.

At $66.5 million, you might have to check your bank funds before cutting a check for your new G650. But really, how can you put a price tag on flying a jet like this?
