  1. Gulfstream G650ER Makes Another City-Pair Record: Sydney To Los Angeles

    The latest city-pair record for the Gulftsream G650ER happened a little over two months ago when an aircraft of that model took off from Sydney Airport enroute to Los Angeles International Airport. On March 11th, the aircraft took off at 7:11 a.m. local time and touched down at Los Angeles International Airport at 1:51 a.m. local time on March 11. The 6,620-nautical-mile/12,260-kilometer flight lasted 12 hours and 40 minutes at an average cruise speed of Mach 0.86.
  2. The reason why we are now finding out about the new city-pair record is because it had to be verified by the U.S. National Aeronautic Association and was granted that approval. It is also being verified by the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale in Switzerland for recognition as a world record. The G650ER can travel 7,500 nm/13,890 km at Mach 0.85 and 6,400 nm/11,853 km at Mach 0.90. It has a maximum speed of Mach 0.925. The G650ER cabin shares the same features and amenities as its sister ship, the G650, and provides passengers the healthiest and most comfortable cabin experience. The aircraft has the largest purpose-built business-jet cabin and offers passengers wider seats, more aisle room, 16 panoramic windows and the lowest cabin altitude of any business jet.
  3. The G650 and G650ER are in a category by themselves and frankly allows more production and faster transit time between city-pairs. “This latest speed record is another demonstration of the G650ER’s superior capabilities,” said Scott Neal, senior vice president, Worldwide Sales and Marketing, Gulfstream. “The unmatched range and speed of the G650ER enables operators to reach more destinations nonstop quickly and efficiently. No other business aircraft can connect Sydney to Los Angeles faster than the G650ER.”
