Gulfstream G550 Buyer’s Guide

If you are shopping for an Ultra-Long-Range business jet to meet your travel needs, there’s a high possibility that the Gulfstream G550 features on your list of possible purchases…

As a variant of the original GV, Gulfstream's G550 delivers increased trans-oceanic range owing mostly to reductions in aerodynamic drag and the fuel-efficient Rolls-Royce BR710-C4-11 powerplants it utilizes.

Moreover, the highly modern Honeywell PlaneView cockpit with enhanced vision makes the flight deck one of the most modern in Business Aviation. For the cabin, the addition of a seventh passenger window on each side of the aircraft distinguishes the G550 from the GV allowing more light to flood into the airplane.

The AvBuyer Opinion: This jet is hugely popular in the business jet market, partly owing to the fact that it delivers excellent performance on long-range trips, and also for full-cabin, short-runway operations.
