The G550 has the efficiency to fly 6,750 nautical miles/12,501 kilometers nonstop, but also is capable of operating out of short-field, high-altitude airports. The G550 can transport up to 19 passengers and still has the range to fly nonstop more than 12 hours.
Powered by two Rolls-Royce engines that provide the most thrust of any jet in its class, the Gulfstream G550 has a cruise range of 6,750 nautical miles /12,501 kilometers. The G550 flies from Shanghai to Los Angeles or New York to Dubai nonstop at Mach 0.80. London to Tokyo or to Los Angeles is nonstop at Mach 0.85.
The Gulfstream G550 flight deck helped launch a safer, more sophisticated avionics platform that, years later, has become standard equipment for most business aircraft. Working with avionics partner Honeywell, Gulfstream in 2003 introduced the PlaneView cockpit, making it the most technologically advanced business jet flight system in existence. Since then, the flight deck has continued to evolve and improve, and by design, easily accepts software upgrades. PlaneView uses four liquid crystal displays to present essential flight data in larger, crisper images that make ever-changing flight conditions easier to analyze.
Gulfstream G550 cabin design is really impressive. Some layouts accommodate beds for eight people, and the option of up to four distinct living areas creates a combination of uses, including a dedicated crew rest area, a private stateroom, conference area and entertainment space. The G550 also provides the option of locating the full-size galley forward or aft.
