Gulfstream G650ER Continues Record Streak

Aircraft Links North America And Asia At Remarkable Speeds

Two more speed records are pending for the Gulfstream G650ER.

A G650ER took off from Ohio’s John Glenn Columbus International Airport and landed at Shanghai’s Pudong International Airport 14 hours and 35 minutes later, covering 6,750 nautical miles at an average cruise speed of Mach 0.85. Following that flight, the aircraft flew 6,143 nm from Taipei Taoyuan International Airport to Arizona’s Scottsdale Airport, cruising at Mach 0.90 the entire trip. The total flight time was just 10 hours and 57 minutes.

“The G650ER is the only business jet that could make the demanding trip from Columbus to Shanghai nonstop,” said Scott Neal, senior vice president, Worldwide Sales, Gulfstream. “When you talk to customers, what many of them need is more time. These records demonstrate the G650ER’s ability to give our customers just that. We know time is precious, and opportunities are best met when customers arrive quickly and refreshed.”

Pending approval by the U.S. National Aeronautic Association, the records will be sent to the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale in Switzerland for recognition as world records.

The G650ER and its sister ship, the G650, hold more than 60 records combined. In January 2015, the G650ER completed the farthest flight in its history. The aircraft traveled 8,010 nm nonstop from Singapore to Las Vegas in just over 14 hours.

The G650ER can travel 7,500 nm at Mach 0.85, while the G650 can travel 7,000 nm at Mach 0.85. Both have a maximum operating speed of Mach 0.925.
