Gulfstream delivers 550th G550
Gulfstream Aerospace has delivered its 550th Gulfstream G550.
“This milestone delivery affirms the continued demand for the G550, one of the most dependable and sought-after aircraft in the world today.”
Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream said: “This milestone delivery affirms the continued demand for the G550, one of the most dependable and sought-after aircraft in the world today. The G550’s best-in-class range and payload have earned it a lasting reputation as a versatile aircraft for business aviation and an ideal platform for special missions.”
The G550 can carry up to 19 passengers between the world’s business capitals and can fly eight passengers and four crew 6,750nm/12,501km nonstop, connecting New York with Dubai at Mach 0.80, or London with Los Angeles at Mach 0.85.
“The G550 has set the standard others follow. The only aircraft in service today that fly farther than the G550 are our own Gulfstream G650 and G650ER. The G550 was also the first to feature our award-winning PlaneView flight deck, which quickly became the new ideal in business aviation. The aircraft’s technological and safety advances even led the G550 to be awarded the prestigious Robert J. Collier Trophy,” added Burns.
