25 Oct Discover the G650
Charter the Gulfstream G650 private jet for your next business or leisure trip with Falcona. Setting new standards in business travel the G650 is the choice of our more discerning travellers. Seating for up to 16 people in a spacious environment, with the latest in aircraft technology make this the perfect choice for your next long range trip.
Capable of flying direct from New York to Beijing or London to Buenos Aires. You fly in the utmost comfort whilst staying connected at all times during your flight. With a host of amenities and features on board it will satisfy all your travel needs. The plush seats can be converted into flat beds (five singles and one double).
The cabin lets in the maximum amount of light and is pressurised to a low altitude, allowing you to arrive at your destination relaxed and refreshed. Capable of reaching altitudes of 51,000ft, which is way above most weather and commercial airliners, allowing for faster and more direct flights.
What Gulfstream delivers in the G650 is a jet that flies at more than 92 percent of the speed of sound for thousands of miles with fly-by-wire precision. That same design innovation created a quieter, roomier, more adaptable cabin teeming with advanced technology.
With the G650’s long, unfettered wing, they redefined how air flows over an aircraft wing, creating a highly efficient airfoil that delivers speed and an incredibly smooth ride.
At a long-range cruise speed of Mach 0.85, the Gulfstream G650 flies 7,000 nautical miles/12,964 kilometers non stop with eight passengers. Los Angeles to London is more than 30 minutes faster and New York to Tokyo almost an hour closer compared to other large-cabin aircraft.
The G650 makes once-distant cities all part of a day’s work, and with the lowest pressurised cabin altitude of any business aircraft, passengers arrive feeling refreshed and ready for whatever opportunities lay ahead.
An 8 foot 6 inch/2.59 meter-wide cabin, the largest in its class, helps create an exquisitely comfortable environment for 16 passengers.
Sixteen large Gulfstream panoramic windows, each 28 by 20.5 inches/71 by 52 cm, allow abundant sunlight into the cabin, even in the galley. Every window has been repositioned higher on the fuselage to maximise your viewing comfort.
The G650 has the lowest cabin altitude of any business jet and replenishes 100 percent fresh air every two minutes.
Lower cabin altitude means the heart and lungs don’t work as hard to oxygenate the blood, which reduces fatigue and ensures that upon arrival, passengers are more refreshed and alert.
High-speed connectivity is another. The Gulfstream G650 offers a variety of ways to stay connected, whether with internet options, two multichannel satellite communications systems or a wireless local network that provides on board printing and phone service.
Dual media servers, high-definition video source equipment and a cabin audio system also keep business on track, even at Mach 0.925.
Every detail of the G650 interior was designed to create an atmosphere that intuitively provides the utmost control and comfort. The Gulfstream Cabin Management System (GCMS) synchronizes with Apple iOS or select Google Android smartphones and tablets to provide touch-screen control for temperature, lighting, window shades and entertainment options.
Apple iPod touches or Google Android devices are provided as cabin controls, but GCMS also can be saved to a free mobile application on a passenger’s iPhone, iPad or Android device, which allows a passenger to save and recall preferences for a subsequent flight.
The Gulfstream-designed CabinView lets passengers track flight progress, displays points of interest and provides passenger briefings.
Sleek, pristine wings allow the Gulfstream G650 to fly like no other competing business jet ever has. Gulfstream engineers redefined how the wings interact with the surrounding air, which significantly reduces drag and increases speed and range.
Take a look at the highly swept G650 wing, and realize what isn’t there―no vortex generators to disrupt the natural airflow over the wing, no leading-edge devices required by other aircraft to improve slow-speed handling qualities and no exposed flap hinges and flap tracks that cause drag.Those devices slow the aircraft, reduce range and generate noise in the cabin.
Pair this uniquely engineered wing with newly designed, higher thrust Rolls-Royce BR725 AI-12 engines, and the G650 achieves unprecedented performance. The G650 reaches a Maximum Mach Operating (MMO) speed of 0.925 and handles superbly at low speeds. It’s just one more example of intelligent design from Gulfstream.
The PlaneView™ II Flight Deck
Consider all the data a pilot must process while streaking close to the sound barrier. Now think about the most user-friendly way to provide that complex information. In the Gulfstream G650, the PlaneView II flight deck provides layers of cutting-edge technology in streamlined displays, helping pilots think faster than they fly.
Gulfstream-designed Cursor Control Devices (CCDs) put more data at a pilot’s fingertips. The side-mounted cursor controls allow pilots to select and scroll through data on the multifunction flight displays, giving them improved information ownership and increased situational awareness.
Improving on the Human Eye
Technology can improve performance, and in aviation, that includes safety. A nose-mounted infrared camera, part of the Gulfstream Enhanced Vision System (EVS) II, allows pilots to see what the human eye cannot by providing more detailed images of airports and surrounding terrain at night and in low-visibility conditions.
EVS images also can be routed to a Head-Up Display (HUD), which allows the pilot to review data from a transparent screen in his or her forward field of vision.
Synthetic Vision blends three-dimensional colour images of terrain, obstacles and runways with instrument readings on the pilot’s Primary Flight Display, a combination that creates a more easily visualized landing approach for pilots, courtesy of the most advanced business aviation flight deck in the air.
Gulfstream further pushes the technology envelope by equipping the G650 with a computer-controlled, highly redundant fly-by-wire flight system, which, working in concert with the pilot or on full automatic, provides measured, minute adjustments that create smoother flights and increase passenger comfort.
The Gulfstream G650 is the ideal choice for any type of mission, whether it be for a business trip or a family holiday. It features the most advanced aircraft technologies therefore offering greater safety and a smoother flying experience.
