The Gulfstream 550 (or G550) was designed to increase the performance of its predecessor, the Gulfstream 500. Its range increased to 6,750 nautical miles (12,500 km), mostly due to reductions in aerodynamic drag. This is a brawny aircraft with international reach.
Powered by enhanced Rolls-Royce BR710 turbofan engines, the G550 has a range of 6,750 nm at Mach 0.80 and a high-speed cruise capability of Mach 0.87. The cabin aboard the Gulfstream 550 combines productivity with exceptional comfort. It features up to four distinct living areas, three temperature zones, a choice of 12 floor plan configurations with seating for up to 18 passengers.
