Second speedy and long range G650 impresses EAG

Empire Aviation Group of Dubai (EAG) has added a second factory-new G650 to its managed fleet. The privately owned jet is a large cabin, Rolls-Royce powered aircraft with a long-range cruise speed of Mach 0.85 and a range of 7,000 nm with eight passengers and four crew. It can be configured for up to 18 passengers and has large panoramic windows and low cabin pressure, as well as broadband internet.

"The G650 has impressed the EAG team enormously with its overall performance including speed, quietness, comfort and range," says executive director Paras Dhamecha. "We managed the exterior and interior selection on behalf of the owner along with pre-delivery inspections, induction and registration, and crew requirements.

"With two G650s on our managed fleet and a third in the pipeline, we will be at the forefront of operating the type in the region."
