Gulfstream G650 Sets Four City-Pair Records In Five Days

Connecting Cities In The U.S., Middle East, Russia

Gulfstream's new flagship aircraft, the G650, recently established four city-pair speed records in five days, connecting cities in the U.S., the Middle East and Russia.

The G650’s most recent city-pair record came on Jan. 28. The aircraft departed Moscow Vnukovo Airport and landed at Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport 9 hours, 33 minutes later. The G650 cruised at Mach 0.90-0.91 for the 4,774-nautical-mile journey, which resulted in an average speed of 574 mph. The aircraft’s record-setting week began on Jan. 23, when it took off from Dulles International Airport outside of Washington, D.C., and landed at Doha International Airport in Qatar. The G650 flew 6,475 nm at Mach 0.88 in 11 hours, 40 minutes, which resulted in an average speed of 603 mph.

On Jan. 25, the G650 traveled from Doha International Airport to New Jersey’s Teterboro Airport at Mach 0.87 in 13 hours, 3 minutes. The aircraft completed its trip of 6,102 nm at an average speed of 537 mph. On Jan. 26, the G650 was piloted from Teterboro Airport to Moscow Vnukovo at Mach 0.90. Covering a distance of 4,190 nm, it landed in Moscow 7 hours and 47 minutes later, a record time. The G650’s average speed was 619 mph.

Pending approval by the U.S. National Aeronautic Association, these four G650 city-pair records will be sent to the Federation Aeronautique Internationale in Switzerland for recognition as world records. The G650, which had three city-pair feats certified in 2012, earned its type certification from the FAA on Sept. 7, 2012. The first aircraft was delivered to a customer on Dec. 20, 2012.
