A Gulfstream G650ER private jet, owned by Steve Wynn, CEO of Wynn Resorts Limited, completed the furthest flight in its history.

The aircraft flew 8,010 nm/14,835 km non-stop from Singapore Changi Airport to McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas with four passengers on board, including Wynn and three crew members.

“This flight demonstrates how powerful an aircraft the G650ER is,” said Larry Flynn, president of Gulfstream. “To be able to travel distances like this is remarkable and truly captures the essence of this aircraft. Its range and speed are just two of the many reasons for its success and will continue to be the driving forces behind the demand for this aircraft.”
