So you say you are ready to play with the big boys. Are you ready for the best of the best when it comes to private jets? Well hold on to your business suits and briefcases the Gulfstream G650 is here and it is setting the standard for what is expected in business jets. Gulfstream has been manufacturing private jets for over 40 years, every since they introduced the Gulf Stream II business jet in the 1960s.

G650 First Flight
The Gulfstream G650 has the ability to cruise at a speed of 0.85 Mach and can carry eight passengers and a crew of four on a nonstop trip of about 7000 nautical miles.
