Gulfstream’s new G650 ultra-long-range jet will feature a wing built by Spirit AeroSystems. Gulfstream awarded a contract worth more than $1 billion to Spirit to design, produce and integrate the flight-ready G650 wing. The G650 will be the fastest civil airplane, with a maximum operating speed of Mach 0.925, and will offer 7,000-nm range at Mach 0.85 and 5,000 nm at Mach 0.90. Vought Aircraft Industries builds the GV/500/550 wings, while GII, GIII, GIV and G300/400 wings were and are built by Aerostructures, which is owned by the Carlyle Group.
