The Gulfstream GIV (G4) is renowned as one of the most sophisticated luxury jets due to its timeless style, comfort, and productivity. Although it’s been 15 years since the last model was produced, it remains one of the most requested luxury jets on the charter market, and a popular choice for executives and corporate flight departments.

The GIV reaches speeds up to 581 miles per hour (505 knots), offers seating for up to 13 passengers, and an impressive, transoceanic flight range; it can fly up to 4,300 nautical miles without stopping, and with 13 passengers, it can travel non-stop at cruising speeds of 528 mph with a range of 3,800 nautical miles.

Production began in 1985 and the first Gulfstream IV was introduced two years later, offering a significantly upgrade to the earlier (and smaller) G-II and G-III. It went on to enjoy a production run of 16 years, with several military and government versions created along the way, and many still in service.

The extended fuselage and larger cabin accommodates seating for more passengers with the option to sleep 6, and each side offers 6 large, circular windows for improved natural lighting. All these features combined would make the Gulfstream GIV one the most popular corporate jets in aviation history.


The Gulfstream GIV’s cabin measures 1,650 cubic feet, offering plenty of space for large groups traveling together. Cabin amenities include fully reclining chairs or divans, forward or rear lavatory, a full size galley, and a large baggage compartment easy to access during your flight.

Although standard configurations accommodate 13-14 passengers, several high-density configurations were created for up to 19-passengers. There is 169 cubic feet of storage available, enough to fit 6 rolling suitcases, 8 garment bags, 7 carry-on bags, and 4 sets of golf clubs.


Cruising at impressive speeds of around 530 mph, the GIV is an attractive choice for both domestic and international jet charters. A pair of cutting-edge Rolls-Royce Tay 611-8 turbofan engines produce exceptional thrust and cruising speeds, allowing for impressive intercontinental range.

It also offered incredible runway performance for a jet its size, requiring only a 5,000 foot runway to take-off, allowing it to access remote airport other jets in its class can’t reach.


One of the most notorious luxury jets in the history of private aviation, the Gulfstream GIV entered service in 1987, and over 500 aircraft were produced until late 2002, when the last GIV rolled out before the assembly line transitioned to producing the newer G300 and G400.

Future models including the G350, G450, G500, and G550 were all built upon the foundation laid by the Gulfstream GIV, offering unique flexibility to corporate and business jet fleets. The model’s uniformity allows for simple pilot type conversions, which can lead to substantial savings for individuals and corporations who own multiple aircraft from the Gulfstream G-series.

Go back a couple of decades, and the Gulfstream GIV was considered the most luxurious form of private air travel; it was the largest, fastest, and most luxurious private jet available, and hourly charter rates started at approximately $5,500 to fly private on a GIV.

Despite being replaced by larger cabin jets in the Gulfstream G series, these newer models are in higher demand, and are in fewer quantities; the GIV is no longer in production, but there are more than 500 flying today, with several available for private flights. Charter rates start at around $6,000 per hour, and climb higher based on upgrades, amenities, and additional options.

Since the G-IV is still available and for thousands per hour less compared to newer models, they’re still one of the most attractive and highly sought after luxury jet options in the charter market, creating the potential for a high return on investment for G-IV owners making their plane available for charter.
