Gulfstream’s G500 and G600 business jets set groundbreaking worldwide records when they flew from Shanghai to Honolulu, and then once more from Honolulu to Savannah, Georgia, where Gulfstream is headquartered. The G500 set eight city-pair records in its class on its own, earlier this year; although the records have already been set, they have yet to be verified by the National Aeronautic Association.
Gulfstream’s G500 can carry 19 passengers, sleep eight, and completed its journey from Shanghai to Honolulu in 8 hours and 34 minutes, travelling on average at Mach 0.90; in its second trip, it completed the flight in 7 hours and 44 minutes. In contrast, the G600 can carry up to 19 passengers, sleep nine, and is powered by Pratt & Whitney’s Canada PW815GA engine. The G600 has an advanced wing design that is as much as 23% more efficient than competing aircrafts in its class. The G600 completed the Shanghai-to-Honolulu trip only one minute slower than the G500, travelling at the same Mach 0.90 speed.
After recent test flights exceeded the company’s expectations, Gulfstream extended the G500 and G600 flight ranges. The G500 has a range of 5,200-nautical miles at Mach 0.85 and 4,400-nautical miles at Mach 0.90. The G600 now has a 6,500-nautical mile range at Mach 0.85 and a 5,100-nautical mile range at Mach 0.90.
Gulfstream’s President Mark Burns stated that their customers are accustomed to “flying practically anywhere in the world at record speeds” and that the G500 and G600 are on par with their highest performing aircraft, the G650ER.
