Arguably the hottest business jet on the market today, the Gulfstream 650 will cost you a cool $65 million. The jet was introduced in 2008 and quickly had over 200 preorders. Big names on the waiting list include Oprah Winfrey, Warren Buffet, and corporations like Disney and Walmart.
Getting on the list today means you won’t see your new plane until 2017, even if you’re an A-List celebrity or powerful corporation. Gulfstream strictly forbids line jumping, and they are trying to keep speculators out of the G650 market. The popularity of the aircraft has helped Gulfstream rebound from the stress on the industry caused by the recession.
Gulfstream says this is the best aircraft it’s ever built, and it’s easy to see why the jet manufacturer makes that claim. Let’s take a look at some of the features that set it apart from the rest:
Has the ability to fly 7,000 nautical miles non-stop. That links you directly from New York to Dubai, or from London to Buenos Aires without refueling.
Can achieve a speed of Mach 0.925, and is the only traditional private jet to get that close to the speed of sound. That makes it the fastest civilian aircraft currently in the skies.
Has advanced navigation and safety equipment in the cockpit, including 3D weather radar, Automatic Emergency Decent Mode, and the Enhanced Vision System II.
The cabin can be configured in 12 different ways to accommodate up to 18 people.
A longer, taller, and wider cabin is the biggest in this class of jets.
