Overview & History
The Gulfstream G650ER is the ultra long range variant of the standard G650. The original G650 was launched in 2005. At the time the G650 was the largest aircraft that Gulfstream had ever built. However, in 2019 the Gulfstream G700 took the crown for the largest aircraft Gulfstream has ever built.
Nine years later in 2014, the G650ER was certified. The G650ER is able to achieve a greater range than the G650 thanks to an increased 4,000 lb (1,814 kg) fuel capacity.
The G650ER is capable of carrying up to 19 passengers on flights of up to 7,500 nautical miles (8,630 miles / 13,890 KM). This makes the G650ER capable of flying non-stop from London to southern tip of South America. Additionally, the G650ER can easily fly non-stop from New York to Delhi.
In total, the G650 and G650ER have earned over 110 speed records. Roughly half of these records are held just by the G650ER.
Gulfstream G650ER Performance
The G650ER is powered by two rear mounted Rolls-Royce BR725 engines. Each engine is rated for 16,900 lbs of thrust each. This enables the G650ER to take off in just 6,299 feet. The minimum landing distance for the G650ER is 3,000 feet.
When configured for a long range cruise the G650ER can fly up to 7,500 nautical miles without needing a fuel stop. The G650ER can achieve a maximum cruise speed of 516 knots at a maximum altitude of 51,000 feet.
A maximum take off weight (MTOW) of 103,600 lbs is exactly 4,000 lbs greater than the standard G650. This extra 4,000 lbs is the additional fuel required for the increase in range.
Gulfstream G650ER Interior
Of course, the G650ER has a fantastic interior as expected with a Gulfstream. The interior is identical to that of the standard G650.
The G650ER boasts a spacious interior – described as “a refined getaway above the clouds”. The cabin can have up to four living areas, enough to work, dine, entertain and relax.
With one of the quietest cabins in business aviation, the G650ER is the perfect place to relax. The G650ER has a cabin noise level of just 47 decibels. A cabin altitude of 4,100 feet is the lowest in business aviation. 4,100 feet is the cabin altitude when cruising at 51,000 feet. However, it is important to note that when cruising below 51,000 feet the cabin altitude is even lower.
These two factors combine guarantee that the G650ER is supremely comfortable. Additionally, low cabin noise and 100% fresh air ensure that you will arrive at your destination with minimal jet lag.
With 16 of the trademark Gulfstream large, oval windows provide the cabin with an abundance of natural light.
Providing both comfort and productivity, Gulfstream’s handcrafted seats allow you to settle in and enjoy the journey. Each seat is positioned next to a window.
When circumnavigating the globe, as expected, the G650ER is able to provide fully flat beds for the passengers. All single seats and divan convert to beds, providing you with a good nights sleep.
Flying on the G650ER entitles you to the top-of-the-range cabin amenities. Expect WiFi connectivity, a 42-inch flatscreen TV, video monitors, extensive galley facilities.
All G650ERs come equipped with Gulfstream’s PlaneView™ II flight deck. This technology reduces pilot workload and increases safety.
Additionally, Gulfstream are continually developing their cockpits and technology. The latest safety and performance upgrades include steep-approach certification and Enhanced Flight Vision System (EFVS). This allows authorized pilots to land without natural vision in low-visibility conditions.
Future enhancements include their award-winning Predictive Landing Performance System, which is designed to help pilots avoid runway overruns.
Gulfstream G650ER Charter Cost
If chartering the Gulfstream G650ER expect to pay approximately $11,000 per flight hour.
Naturally, prices will vary depending on aircraft availability, positioning, fuel prices, ground fees and more. This is not significantly more than you would be paying with a standard G650.
Prices for a new Gulfstream G650ER start around the low $70 million mark.
If you are looking for a pre-owned example then expect to pay mid $30 million for an early production model.
A three year old aircraft will likely be priced at the low $40 million mark.
