Last week Gulfstream noted the one-year anniversary of the first customer delivery of its flagship G650. The ultra-long-range twinjet received its FAA certification on Sept. 7, 2012, after a flight-test program that logged more than 4,400 flight hours over 1,319 flights. EASA approval followed in December. Over the past year, the Savannah-based airframer has delivered nearly 50 of the wide-cabin business jets to customers in Asia, Europe, the Middle East and North and South America.
