Gulfstream president Larry Flynn noted today at the NBAA Convention that the certified G650 comes with performance improved substantially over earlier projections. Gulfstream had originally predicted a max range of 5,000 nm at Mach 0.90. The revised range is 6,000 nm at the same speed, making city pairs such as Tokyo to New York possible at speeds “faster than any other business jet.” Further, the G650’s takeoff balanced field length was reduced to 5,858 feet from the original 6,000 feet at the airplane’s mtow of 99,600 pounds.
