EBACE attendees can finally get a glimpse of the Gulfstream G650’s cabin interior–the “widest and longest of any dedicated business jet,” according to the manufacturer–in an actual airplane.

Last year, the ultra-long-range twinjet made its EBACE debut sans interior, meaning show-goers could view it only from the outside, although a cabin mockup was at the company’s booth. This time around Gulfstream (Booth 7061) has brought a G650 with a full production interior to Geneva, and it is available for viewing during EBACE in the static park.

The airplane (N650PH, S/N 6013) sports the “universal forward galley with crew rest 13/6” layout option–it can accommodate up to 13 passengers with berthing for six. Among its features are a mid-cabin bulkhead to separate the crew rest area and galley from the passenger compartment, electric seats, large galley and Gulfstream cabin management system, as well as a pop-up 26-inch HD display.
