Buy a Preowned Gulfstream G650
With the waiting list for new Gulfstream G650s nearly three years long, investing in a preowned G650 is definitely the way to go. Named one of the best private planes you can buy, the Gulfstream G650 is one of the biggest, fastest, and farthest-flying business jets available — with a range of 7,000 nautical miles.
When Gulfstream executives began talking about this new jet that had been in development for a number of years, they asked what exactly customers wanted. It was a bold move — and it paid off. Gulfstream’s advisory team held nothing back. They asked for an airplane that was bigger than the already successful G550. They wanted a plane with longer range, and they wanted it to be fast and light so it could land in important business aviation airports like Teterboro.
Demonstrating their commitment to a new manufacturing philosophy, Gulfstream decision-makers listened carefully and then delivered. According to Corporate Jet Investor, this particular jet quickly became one of the hottest on the market after its 2012 introduction.
One reporter referred to the flight deck of the G650 as “the most exciting flight deck” he had ever seen. With full synthetic vision, heads-up display, and more, it is arguably the most advanced business aircraft on the planet. Gulfstream engineers even developed a unique flight control system that allows the aircraft to be piloted the same way — regardless of payload.
While the G650 is the preferred aircraft for jet owners around the world, it’s unusual to see many of them for sale.
