Gulfstream has delivered the final commercial G550 to an international customer, increasing the worldwide fleet of more than 600 G550s already in service. The delivery took place on 30 June.

“For nearly two decades, the G550 has been exceeding customer expectations,” says company president Mark Burns. “The G550 set a new standard for performance and reliability and continues to outperform and impress with its wide-ranging capabilities. Given our vast G550 fleet in service, we look forward to continuing to support all G550 customers around the world with our customer support's extensive network.”

The G550 entered service in 2003 as the launch platform for the Gulfstream PlaneView flight deck. It was also certified with Enhanced Vision System, now known as Enhanced Flight Vision System (EFVS), as a standard feature, leading the way for subsequent aircraft to incorporate the pilot safety tool in their array of offerings.

The aircraft can fly 6,750 nm at Mach 0.80, putting it at the top of its class while earning more than 55 speed records.
