  1. Final Commercial G550 Delivered By Gulfstream
    Gulfstream has completed and delivered the final commercial G550 to an international customer. Last year the airframer announced that they were going to deliver the last available commercial G550. The G550 has been in production for nearly two decades with the last specimen taking the worldwide fleet to over 600 active aircraft. The award-winning G550 entered service in 2003 as the launch platform for the Gulfstream PlaneView™ flight deck. It was also certified with Enhanced Vision System — now known as Enhanced Flight Vision System (EFVS).
  2. "For nearly two decades, the G550 has been exceeding customer expectations," said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream. "The G550 set a new standard for performance and reliability and continues to outperform and impress with its wide-ranging capabilities. Given our vast G550 fleet in service, we look forward to continuing to support all G550 customers around the world with Gulfstream Customer Support’s extensive network." During its reign, the aircraft has made 55 speed related records. At Mach 0.80 the aircraft has an endurance of 6,750 nautical miles. Delivery of the last commercially available G550 took place on the 30th of June.
