After more than 1,850 hours of flight testing, Gulfstream said it has determined that the new G450 will fly 3,500 nm at Mach 0.85, 500 nm farther than its predecessor, the GIV/GIV-SP, and 250 nm farther than the company originally announced. The G450 was FAA certified in August and is scheduled to enter service in the second quarter of next year.
