Gulfstream has manufactured the 100th G650, which was delivered to a customer in the middle of last month. “The production of the 100th G650 is a testament to the demand for this amazing aircraft,” says president Larry Flynn. “It truly set a new world standard for performance, range, speed, safety and comfort when it entered service in December 2012. The completion of the 100th aircraft also speaks volumes about the skilled employees who build these planes.”

The G650 was announced on March 13, 2008, and took its first flight on November 25, 2009. The aircraft was certified by the FAA on September 7, 2012 and by EASA on December 21, 2012.

It can fly close to the speed of sound, with a maximum speed of Mach 0.925, and has a range of 6,000 nm at Mach 0.90.

Adds senior vp worldwide sales and marketing Scott Neal: “The G650 has claimed 42 speed records and secured an around-the-world speed record. It's more fuel-efficient than many other aircraft, offers customers one of the most comfortable cabin experiences and is equipped with industry-leading safety features.”

Gulfstream recently delivered the first fully outfitted G650ER to a customer. It shares the same cabin, avionics and systems as its sister. At Mach 0.85, the 650ER can carry passengers 7,500 nm.
