Gulfstream G550

Gulfstream Aerospace

Operating Cost

First launched over 16 years ago, this award-winning jet continues to impress with excellent range and lightning-quick speeds. Last year, it established yet another new record by flying from Shanghai to Seattle in only 10 hours and 29 minutes.

High-thrust Rolls-Royce engines offer lower fuel burn the capacity to travel over 6,750 nautical miles. That allows you to fly non-stop from Tokyo to London or Beijing to New York.

Due to its superb performance across all key areas, it has been used for a wide range of missions including military and medical disaster relief. That, in turn, has cemented its place as one of the most reliable jets on the market. Of course you can fit your cabin interior out just how you like it, with up to four living areas and all the luxury trimmings you would expect from a Gulfstream jet.
