The Gulfstream 450 is a long-range heavy jet and is considered one of the best in its class. According to Gulfstream, “Functionality is a mainstay of the Gulfstream G450. This is an aircraft that offers more payload, more cabin configurations and has a cockpit equipped with advanced guidance systems, some of which aren’t even available outside the Gulfstream fleet.”
The G450 can travel non-stop over 5,005 statute miles at a cruise speed of 562 mph, making it ideal for trans-continental trips, as well as cross-country flights. With a full galley containing a conventional oven, microwave oven, sink, cooled storage, china dinnerware and stemware, full meal service can easily be arranged. This jet offers a fully enclosed lavatory with closets for additional storage. There is also 169 cubic feet of ample baggage space that is accessible while in-flight.
The Gulfstream G450 sets the standard for luxury, reliability and performance. The heavy jet can seat up to 16 people at max capacity in the large stand-up cabin and berth up to six. The cabin is ideal for conducting business with its advanced soundproofing technologies that cuts outside noise significantly. To combat fatigue and contribute to passenger comfort, fresh air is circulated around the cabin every two minutes. The 12 oval windows allow for more natural light in the cabin making for a more enjoyable ride.
The spacious interior of the Gulfstream G450 is 1525 cubic feet, with a cabin height of 6′ 2″, width of 7′ 3″ and length of 45′ 1″. Many G450s come standard with other cabin technologies including: a seven-channel Honeywell satellite communications system, CD/DVD player, Wi-Fi network, printer, fax machine, LCD TV screens, cabin audio system, electrical outlets, and tables to conduct work.
The impressive range and speed of the Gulfstream G450 is due largely to the new wing design that helps cut down on drag and help with fuel capacity and consumption. The technological capabilities in the cockpit are also quite impressive. Gulfstream boasts that “the most advanced technology comes standard issue in the Gulfstream G450 PlaneView cockpit. Four multifunction 14-inch liquid crystal display units provide layers of data such as interactive navigation, electronic approach charts, and satellite and radar weather images. Colorful graphics paired with well-organized, streamlined data improve pilots’ situational awareness and their ability to respond to changing conditions.” Equipped with an Enhanced Vision System (EVS) and Head-Up Display (HUD), pilots can easily monitor their surroundings even in low visibility conditions.
In 2009, Gulfstream Aerospace’sG280took its first flight, and since has become a very popular jet in thesuper midsizecategory. The G280 was designed with the input of many existing Gulfstream customers on their Customer Advisory Board. Some notable enhancements include: a new wing, tail, engine and an updated interior. The jet also features the Gulfstream PlaneView 280 cockpit developed from the Rockwell Collins’ Pro Line Fusion avionics suite. According to Gulfstream, “A newly designed long, sleek wing and high-thrust engines increase range and speed, yet fuel economy is so well maximized the G280 has earned best-in-class fuel efficiency.”
TheGulfstream G280quickly became one of the most popular jets in the super midsize class because it offers unmatched performance and handling capabilities, as well as a quiet and exceptionally comfortable cabin. The G280 can fly non-stop for up to 8 hours, surpassing all othermidsizeandsuper midsizebusiness jets, and has the ability to take off and land from shorter airfields. With remarkable fuel efficiency, the G280 is said to consume 12% less fuel than comparable jets.
The cabin of the G280 is also impressive. Some notable features include: a 6’3″ cabin height, 935 cubic feet of cabin space, seating for up to 8 passengers with some models offering beds for up to 5 passengers, 19 windows for maximum natural light, 100% fresh air circulation and a cabin management system that allows passengers to adjust the lighting, temperature, high-definition monitors and other entertainment features from an on-board iPod Touch. TheG280comes with a galley equipped with all the essentials for meal and beverage service, as well as an aft lavatory with floor-to-ceiling closets, a vacuum toilet, vanity, and mirror.
The Gulfstream CabinView system also allows passengers to monitor and track flight progress, map geographic boundaries and shows other points of interest. TheG280has ample baggage space with 154 cubic feet of space, with rear storage accessible from inside theaircraft.
The Gulfstream G280 is a fantasticsuper midsizejet for passengers looking for a best-in-class option for both business and personal travel. The G280 continues to outperform the competition and exceed private fliers’ expectations.

The flight management system also integrates a Global Positioning System and a diagnostic maintenance computer.”
The Gulfstream IV is a superior heavy jetknown for its performance in terms of speed, range, cabin size and passenger capacity. The GIV seats 12 and can travel 4,264 statute miles at average speeds up to 534 mph. The Gulfstream IV was produced after re-engineering the wing structure of the Gulfstream III. The GIV offers a standup cabin and a longer transcontinental range than the GIII, as well as a slightly larger baggage capacity and seating for one additional passenger.
The Gulfstream IV is very popular for long-haul family vacations, transcontinental trips, and golf outings because of its versatility. The GIV has the ability to fly for longer distances, but can conveniently maneuver into smaller airports so it can essentially travel anywhere.
The GIV has had several upgrades over the years including the special purpose Gulfstream IV-SP and the later redesigned Gulfstream G400 which has since been updated to the popular G450.
The Gulfstream IV features forward or rear galleys with ample space for meal service, a crew lavatory and an executive lavatory, a stateroom with the option for 1-2 berthing divans in the rear of the aircraft, and a cabin attendant. The 169-cubic-foot baggage compartment is internally and externally accessible and can easily accommodate passengers needs, even when flying with bulky sporting equipment.
The Gulfstream 550 is a long-range heavy jet and is considered a best-in-value business aircraft. According to the National Aeronautic Association, the G550’s design team was awarded the Collier Trophy for “leading-edge achievement in designing, testing and building an innovative aircraft while incorporating measurable safety enhancements and far-reaching advances in aerospace technology….”
The G550 is an ultra-long-range business jet that can travel non-stop over 7,282 statute miles at a cruise speed of 614 mph, able to travel from New York to Dubai non-stop.

The 14 signature Gulfstream oval windows also allow for more natural light in the cabin, letting in the view from every angle.
The technological capabilities in the G550’s cockpit are also quite impressive. “Working with avionics partner Honeywell, Gulfstream in 2003 introduced the PlaneView cockpit, making it the most technologically advanced business jet flight system in existence. Since then, the flight deck has continued to evolve and improve, and by design, easily accepts software upgrades. PlaneView uses four liquid crystal displays to present essential flight data in larger, crisper images that make ever-changing flight conditions easier to analyze.” Equipped with an Enhanced Vision System (EVS) and Head-Up Display (HUD), pilots can easily monitor their surroundings even in low visibility conditions.
