Ever dream about owning something so spectacular it seems out of reach? Well, billionaires are people too and since its introduction in 2008.
The Gulfstream G650 has been on most of their wishlists. This super jet is now considered the quintessential standard in business aviation and has held that title since its inception. It is promoted as the roomiest and most comfortable as well as the fastest. Additionally, it flies the farthest and longest distances of any in its class. It holds up to eighteen passengers and a four-man crew, depending on the configuration the owner selects.
Some of the formations allow for more passenger seating, while others use the space for fewer passenger seats and more births for sleeping. So it all depends on the buyer’s personal requirements when their G650 is ordered.
Some readers don’t realize that Rolls-Royce creates engines for high-speed sports cars, as well as jets. This incredible aircraft is also powered by Rolls-Royce and uses two BR725 engines. These engines are so powerful the plane can hit cruising speeds up to Mach .925 for shorter distance trips and Mach .85 for lengthier journeys. This is yet another feature that no other business class aircraft can boast.
Passengers will be flying as close to the speed of sound on this luxurious and comfy plane. It has a maximum cruising altitude of 51,000 feet (15,545 m), which means it can fly above nasty weather conditions and avoid excessive air traffic. Plus, it can gain that altitude in around 20 minutes, which means it would be a fast ascension to safe skies.
Here is a closer look at this $64.5 million dream-jet to see what all the fanfare is all about. If you’re one of the many distinguished billionaires who want one of these jets, put in your order ASAP, because there is a three-year plus wait.
