Since its entry into service in 2012. The G650 (Model GVI) was The Gulfstream flagship jet, offering the largest and fastest business aircraft ever built. Currently dethroned by Bombardier Global 7500, Gulfstream is aiming to restore its positioning on the highest-end business jet offering in 2022 with the entry into service of the stretched G700 derivative. 

The 7000nm, G650 was first unveiled in 2008, followed by the first flight on November 25th,2009. With the G650, Gulfstream was able to bring to market the most incredible high-speed wing, the 36-degree sweep, highly clean wing, enabled one of the flight test vehicles to reach Mach 0.995 during a flutter testing as early as December 27th, 2009.

In 2014, Gulfstream introduced the higher MTOW G650ER model, busting the traditional 100,000 lbs business aircraft MTOW limit. The ER additional 4,000 lb fuel capacity enabled an additional 500nm range increase compared to the standard model.
