Gulfstream G650 Review: Better Than The Best
Hi, are you interested in having the latest airplane Gulfstream has released, the Gulfstream G650? Then you have arrived at the right place! No no no, I’m not selling this amazing aircraft, but I have written a special review about this G650 so you can have a better point of view about it before you decide to buy it. Because for something with a price tag of US$ 64.5 million, you need a clear review so you won’t get disappointed later. So let’s begin.

The Gulfstream G650 History and Design

Gulfstream G650 was first released in 2008, first researched and made in 2005, and still in production until now. If you wish to have a new one, you will need to wait for 4 years in their waiting list. The G650 is the biggest and the fastest, longest range and have the best technology inside, business private jet available in the non-military market, its top speed is 0.925 Mach (almost the same of the speed of sound).

Gulfstream G650 farthest range is 8.000 nautical miles, or a non-stop flying from New York to Dubai with eight passengers. And to fly from Tokyo to New York will save you almost an hour compared to other aircrafts.

The G650 uses two Rolls Royce BR725 engine to move, with a maximum thrust of 34,000 pounds-force. This engine provides less sound compared to Boeing 737, almost half of their noise. With a weight less than 100,000 pounds (45,400 kgs), the G650 can land at small airport. Its maximum altitude is 51,000 feet, and maximum take off weight is 99,600 lbs. G650 also has higher cabin pressure to reduce fatigue and jet-lag upon landing. Every two minutes, the G650 replaces the air in the cabin with fresh air.

The Gulfstream G650 Luxury Interior

Gulfstream G650 has sixteen wider windows, with a width of 71 by 52 centimeters, which provides a bright sunlight into the cabin, makes it very comfortable. The windows are also placed higher than the G550.

The Gulfstream Cabin Management Systems (GCMS) can synch with your gadgets, like Apple iOS and Android, and that makes you able control the cabin’s lightning, windows shades, temperature, and any entertainment systems with your gadget! And the cabin setting can be saved for future flight so next time you fly with G650, all you need to do is just using your cabin setting saved in your gadget. Amazing right?

There are 12 options of floor plans for you to choose. And all the sofas are high quality hand-made. With the full-reclining seats, you can take a rest upon flying. The lavatory is also a high-class made.

Gulfstream G650 PlaneView™ Cockpit

Gulfstream G650 is armed with a cutting edge technology called PlaneView™. In an easier word, it helps the pilots to fly even in a no-light condition, while flying in nearly the speed of sound. It also has Fly-by-Wire system, which allows the airplane to be flown fully automatic.

The Accidents and Incidents of Gulfstream G650

In April 2, 2011, two pilots and two engineers was killed during the accident when the Gulfstream G650 was being tested the second time. From the investigation, it was found that attempt to achieve V2 speed was too low, thus the manufacturer raised the V2 speed to 150 knots from 135 before.

My conclusion of the G650 is this special aircraft is really, really special. The best in its class until this article is made. If you want to buy a private airplane, then make it Gulfstream G650.
