  1. Gulfstream G650ER Continues To Blaze Trail Of Speed Records
    The latest in a long-running string of speed records made by a Gulfstream flagship G650ER is a pair of flights executed between set of city pairs. The first involved a a G650ER that took off from Ohio’s John Glenn Columbus International Airport and landed at Shanghai’s Pudong International Airport 14 hours and 35 minutes later, covering 6,750 nautical miles/12,501 kilometers at an average cruise speed of Mach 0.85. The same aircraft later on set another record flying between Taipei and Arizona.
  2. The aircraft flew 6,143 nm/11,377 km from Taipei Taoyuan International Airport to Arizona’s Scottsdale Airport, cruising at Mach 0.90 the entire trip. The total flight time was just 10 hours and 57 minutes. “The G650ER is the only business jet that could make the demanding trip from Columbus to Shanghai nonstop,” said Scott Neal, senior vice president, Worldwide Sales, Gulfstream. “When you talk to customers, what many of them need is more time. These records demonstrate the G650ER’s ability to give our customers just that. We know time is precious, and opportunities are best met when customers arrive quickly and refreshed.” The G650ER and its sister ship, the G650, hold more than 60 records combined. In January 2015, the G650ER completed the farthest flight in its history. The aircraft traveled 8,010 nm/14,835 km nonstop from Singapore to Las Vegas in just over 14 hours.
