Wrigley Stretches Its Legs With G550

The Wm Wrigley Jr. Company of Chicago has a rare bird, one of only two Gulfstream G550s equipped with a second crew-rest area, divided from the remaining aft end of the cabin by a sound-damping lead curtain. The second crew-rest area was built and installed at Gulfstream’s Long Beach, Calif. completion center. The other aircraft with a second crew-rest area is operated by NetJets.

The additional crew-rest area allows the aircraft to reach its maximum nonstop range potential of 14 hours and still meet FAA crew-rest requirements. The addition of
the second crew rest area would, in theory, allow nonstop flights of almost 6,000 nm between Tokyo and New York City.
