Aircraft Details

The Gulfstream 550 is a standard-bearer in the business aviation community – one of the most frequently deployed business jets for executive and corporate flyers, it’s also a favorite among VIPs, celebrities, athletes, and luxury travelers.

Compared to the Gulfstream V, the G550 offers an additional 250 nautical mile range, and allows for an additional 500 lbs. of maximum take-off weight. A high-speed cruising performance of 561 mph and 51,000 foot maximum ceiling helps passengers avoid turbulence and enjoy a smooth, relaxing ride during long distance, transoceanic flights.

The cabin’s size is similar to the 500, with a modified layout to maximize space more efficiently. Designs include hand-tailored leather seats, hundreds of exquisite fabrics, and dozens of unique wood finishes.

Seating is typically configured for between fourteen and nineteen people, and typical baggage amounts for 14 passengers may include eight suitcases, six carry on size bags, and two sets of golf clubs.

The GV-SP is one of the most reliable aircraft on the market. Collectively, there are more than 500 aircraft in service with more than 1 million hours in service and an NBAA dispatch reliability rating of 99.9 percent, or equal to missing just one flight during five years of service on average, offering the dependability that corporate flight departments and private owners require.

The interior features 14 signature, oval windows, allowing plenty of natural light to covert the cabin into a comfortable meeting room, or to offer breath-taking views from 51,000 feet.

Cabin features including 100% fresh-air replenishment, low-altitude cabin pressurization, and reduced cabin noise allow passengers to stay energetic, focused, and relaxed. Add Wi-Fi connectivity, satellite communications, and an array of office essentials including printer/phone/fax systems, and the G550 the perfect choice for your executive office in the sky.
