    We all know how long the line is in terms of waiting for a G650 slot. Perhaps if you are interested in a used one, then you will have no wait at all! That's because Denis O'Brien, yes the Irish Telcoms big man appears to be putting his G650 up for sale. The aircraft was delivered him by Gulfstream in July of 2013 so it is still fairly new. If you want it, that will set you back $67.95-million, that's the asking price. Since being delivered in mid-2013, the aircraft accumulated 1,734 hours ad around 558-flights.

    HAITEC Aircraft Maintenance GmbH gained approval to perform Part 145 line maintenance on Gulfstream G650 executive aircraft. If we look back at their achievements we can see that this service company has approvals from civil aviation organisations of Russia, United Arab Emirates, Azerbaijan, Bermuda and the FAA for Airbus, Boeing and Gulfstream aircraft. Quite a nice line-up there for them.

    It appears as though there is another G650 that is going for sale right now. This time it is the first G650 that was delivered back on December 20, 2012. N711SW (S/N6007) seems to be for sale at the moment. Most of you will know that this particular aircraft is operated by the Wynn Resorts.

    Gulfstream is going to be displaying a Gulfstream G550 at the upcoming Chinese International Business Aviation Show (CIBAS) in September. “China has been a strong market for Gulfstream with more than 100 Gulfstream aircraft in the country. Beijing is especially important, because it is home to Gulfstream Beijing, our service center in the region.

    MHS Aviation recently became the first German operator to have the flagship G650 executive airplane. The aircraft is currently registered as D-AYSM (MSN 6146). It arrived at Saarbrücken Airport on October 5 and will soon be pressed into service. This is a first for Germany but of course there are many G650s flying around the rest of European airspace.

    Owners and operators of the Gulfstream GIV-SP business jet should be happier with the option of having a great piece of technology now available to them. Thanks to recent approval from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Gulfstream G-IV-SP aircraft equipped with PlaneDeck avionics can now add synthetic vision to its suite of cockpit functions. Gulfstream is also looking at similar supplemental type certification for their GV and GIV executive aircraft.
