GULFSTREAM | GV-SP | G550 (2003-2021)
The G550 or originally named the GV-SP, debuted in 2003 and has since produced and delivered over 600 units worldwide. Gulfstream manufactures the G550 at their headquarters in Savannah, Georgia and is built on the Gulfstream G-V platform. The first Gulfstream G-V was developed in response to the Bombardier Global Express in the 1990’s. Gulfstream’s have always preserved their status as pop-culture icons with the G-IVSP likely being the most recognizable business jet ever manufactured. Gulfstream’s have always preserved their status as pop-culture icons with the G-IVSP likely being the most recognizable business jet ever manufactured. Gulfstream is synonymous with private aviation and is frequently regarded as the epitome of luxury. While Bombardier, Embraer, Dassault Falcon, and Cessna are all excellent rivals, none have achieved the same level of status and stature as a Gulfstream. Not to mention the sheer amount of world records for its fleet. Despite being in existence for almost two decades, the G550 contributes to this image by spawning versions such as the G500. The last G550 would be delivered on June 30th, 2021 and the G650 / G650ER would carry on the legacy the G550 helped build.

The G550’s cabin never surpasses 6,000 feet in altitude while cruising at 51,000 feet, which is lower than the cabin altitude of most commercial aircraft and business jets normally at 8,000 ft while at 37,000 feet. This low cabin altitude, alongside low cabin noise levels of 53 dB, and 100% fresh cabin air, ensures that you will be functioning at peak performance regardless of what you are doing – working, resting, sleeping, or dining. These elements work in conjunction to mitigate the effects of jet lag, resulting in a more rested and rejuvenated state of mind upon arrival.Despite the fact that the G550 has been in service for a long period of time, it continues to offer all of the latest technology that one would expect from a Gulfstream. Each seat includes a personal audio/visual display, and cabin settings such as window coverings, cabin climate, video input, cabin tunes, and flight information may be managed via an intuitive smartphone app. The G550 comes equipped with a wireless network, satellite communication, an Iridium phone, and a fax/printer as standard.The G550 makes excellent use of available space, with a total cabin volume of 1,669 cubic feet. With all of this capacity, the G550 can carry up to 16 passengers and sleep up to eight (depending on the arrangement). The huge, oval-shaped windows are one of the most distinct features on all Gulfstream’s. These iconic oval windows are bigger than its competitors, and the G550 boasts 14 Gulfstream Signature Oval Windows across the cabin, which increase the sense of space and contribute to overall well being through an abundance of natural light.

The G550’s Rolls-Royce BR710 engines are near-indestructible and are rear-mounted to the fuselage. Each BR710 generates 15,385 lbs of thrust (30,770 lbs total), which enables the G550 to take off and land in just 5,910 and 2,770 feet, respectively. The engines are capable of propelling the G550 to a top altitude of 51,000 feet and a top cruising speed of 588 knots. With a maximum take-off weight of 91,000 pounds and a range of 6,850 nautical miles, the G550 is capable of flying nonstop between Europe and the Americas, Africa, and the majority of Asia.

Gulfstream’s new cockpit is called PlaneView, and it is equipped with a completely customized and exclusive to the G550, the Honeywell Primus Epic avionics system. PlaneView is integrated into every system on the airplane, and pilots control it via conventional keyboards and knobs or, in another Gulfstream first, two cursor control devices fitted to each pilot’s outboard hand.When a G550 pilot looks out the windshield, he can see all of the pertinent information he needs to operate the aircraft on the standard head-up display (HUD), which includes an infrared image enhanced vision system (EVS) that can see through darkness, fog, and other obstructions. The G550 is the most proficient and safest aircraft Gulfstream has ever manufactured, thanks to its standard auto-throttles, PlaneView avionics system, HUD with EVS, triple inertial navigation systems, countless redundant systems, and extended range.The principal alteration to the jet was the addition of the PlaneView avionics system, although Gulfstream also claimed increased range and a roomier interior. While the GV delivered on its promises, it would have been unable to complete the journey from New York to Tokyo if headwinds were much greater than usual or air temperatures aloft were extremely high. Additional range of 250 nautical miles would be plenty to complete the journey every time, and that is precisely what the G550 provides.

Gulfstream is one of the most successful and best-known private jet manufacturers in the world, as well as the market leader in large-cabin aircraft. The Gulfstream G550 is an Ultra Long Range intercontinental jet that is a significant improvement over Gulfstream’s well-known GV. It is capable of flying faster, further, more efficiently, and with more space than its predecessor. Gulfstream developed the G550 to compete against stiff competition in the 1990’s in the large cabin jet category. Among the visible enhancements are more cabin space and increased passenger amenities for an enhanced flying experience. CharterJets Inc. features the newest and highest safety rated G550’s available. Reach out today to discuss your upcoming travel!
