Gulfstream's final G550 finds a buyer
Announced in 2000, the G550 entered service in 2003 as the launch platform for Gulfstream PlaneView. It heads into retirement having accumulated more than 55 speed records, winning many admirers along the way.
It's the end of production for the G550.

Gulfstream has sold the last commercially available G550, clearing the way for production of the type to wind down. The final commercial aircraft will be delivered to a customer in 2021.

“The G550 set the standard for subsequent aircraft and the industry,” says company president Mark Burns. “With more than 600 in service, the G550 has earned its place as a leader in business aviation. Its technological innovations and safety enhancements earned the G550 development team the prestigious Robert J. Collier Trophy in 2003. While manufacturing of the G550 will end, our industry-leading support of the aircraft will continue. With more than 30 company-owned and factory-authorised service centres on five continents as well as the ability to produce and procure parts, we are well-prepared to continue offering G550 owners the highest level of support.”

Announced in 2000, the G550 entered service in 2003 as the launch platform for the Gulfstream PlaneView flight deck. Its range and high-altitude capabilities put the aircraft at the top of its class, as evidenced by more than 55 speed records.

“Over the past decade, Gulfstream has solidified its reputation for delivering high speed and ultra long range,” Burns continues. “And we know that's what our customers want: the ability to regularly and comfortably fly at Mach 0.90, so that's where we'll continue to place our focus. Our newest large-cabin offerings, whether the high-speed Gulfstream G650ER or the next-generation Gulfstream G500 and Gulfstream G600, continue this heritage by offering exceptional safety, innovation and performance, making them ideal for both commercial and special missions operations.”
