An Inside Look at the Gulfstream G650 Private Jet

The Gulfstream G650 is the epitome of classy. Whether you’re traveling across the Atlantic, or just going away for the weekend to San Francisco, the Gulfstream G650 is the jet to have.

For $65 Million, it is the fastest, most luxurious and biggest jet money can buy. If you pre-order today, you will have to wait until 2017 before you can enjoy your newly assembled Gulfstream G650.

Here’s some fun facts about this classy private jet.

The G650 is the largest purpose-built private jet on the market, and has the tallest, longest, and widest cabin in its class.

At its maximum takeoff weight, it can climb to 41,000 feet (above bad weather and crowded commercial jet routes) in just 22 minutes.

Its range is more than 8,000 miles. Flying from London at near its top speed, it can reach New York and Beijing. At a slower, more fuel-efficient rate, it can get to Buenos Aires and Los Angeles.

With two Rolls-Royce engines, the plane has a top speed of Mach .925 — nearly the speed of sound, and much faster than commercial jets.

A camera under the plane’s nose helps them see what’s below the plane.

The plane’s Enhanced Vision System can project an infrared image of what its cameras see onto the pilot’s Head-Up Display.

Pilots also have the Synthetic Vision-Primary Flight Display, which uses terrain data to create a digital view of the plane’s surroundings, for use in low visibility conditions.

For $65 million, you get more than a well-equipped cockpit. The G650′s cabin is totally luxurious and there’s room on board for eight passengers and a crew of four.

Buyers choose from 12 different floor plans, and lie flat seats for those who want a good night’s sleep.

On top of the luxury amenities, the G650′s structure and engines are designed so the cabin can be pressurized to a higher level than normal. The result is that passengers feel like they’re breathing at an altitude of 3,000 to 4,000 feet, not about 8,000, like on commercial jets. That makes flying less tiring and even more comfortable.
