The G650 has a maximum cruise speed of Mach 0.925, making it the fastest certified civilian aircraft in production. Each of its two Rolls-Royce BR725 A1-12 engines provides 16,900 pounds of thrust, yet the aircraft burns less fuel and produces fewer emissions than other aircraft.
The G650 cabin includes a number of technologically advanced systems, including the Gulfstream-designed Cabin Management System, which allows passengers to use personal electronic devices to control the cabin's high-definition audio and video components as well as cabin lighting, cabin temperature, window shades and other cabin functions, including the Gulfstream CabinView Passenger Flight Information System.
The cabin adheres to Gulfstream's Cabin Essential design philosophy. This means the cabin systems (lighting, power, cabin control, cabin entertainment, and the water and waste systems) are designed with redundancy that minimizes the risk of losing cabin functionality.
The G650 earned its type certificate from the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration on Sept. 7, 2012.NOTE TO EDITORS Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation, designs, develops, manufactures, markets, services and supports the world's most technologically advanced business-jet aircraft.
