Gulfstream G650ER

This is Gulfstream's flagship product, costing a cool $66.5 million. It comes fully loaded with all the goodies you'd expect to see in a private jet, plus the entire cabin system can be controlled by a smartphone app! 

With more than 470 aircraft in service and 120-plus world speed records, the G650 and G650ER are among the most trusted business jets in the world. 

In May 18 2014, the G650ER was launched at the annual European Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition (EBACE) in Switzerland. It received its Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) type certificate in October 2014 and started deliveries in last quarter of 2014.

In April 2016, the aircraft obtained its European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) certification, then in February 2017 it was granted Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) type certificate validation.

In March 2014, a G650ER development aircraft had a non-stop flight from Hong Kong to New Jersey, then also from Los Angeles, California to Melbourne, Australia.

In 2015, G650ER set a record for the longest non-stop flight with a range of 8,010 nautical miles from Singapore to Las Vegas carrying four passengers and crew. However, in March 2019, the record was outpaced by Bombardier Global 7500; then in April 2019, the G650ER retook its record as the longest range business jet at an average speed of 597 miles per hour over a distance of 8,379 nautical miles from Singapore to Tucson, Arizona.

G650ER Flight Deck

The flight deck of G650ER is supported by a three-axis-fly-by-wire technology that creates an enjoyable flight. It provides features that help to increase fuel intake and decrease weight. The streamlined displays of the PlaneView II flight deck aids the pilot to reduce workload by observing aircraft position, nearby airways, airport information, weather information, surroundings, and flight conditions.

The flight management system is associated with flight displays and Cursor Control Devices (CCD) that assists the pilot to command and control the aircraft. The critical data is presented in a user-friendly format that boost situational awareness and promptness of response of the pilot.

The aircraft also features a steep-approach certification and Enhanced Flight Vision System (EFVS) which provides an image better than unaided human vision and displays it to the pilot.

There is Aircraft Health and Trend Monitoring System (AHTMS)- powered PlaneConnect HTM systems used in order to collect and transmit aircraft performance data to assist in identifying issues before they take place, and to aid in troubleshooting issues that are hard to detect.
