The Gulfstream V (or G-V) is known as the world’s first ultra long-range business jet. It is recognized as the safest, most reliable, most comfortable, high-performance, ultra-long range business aircraft in the world. The Gulfstream V completes worldwide missions that exceed the capabilities of all other corporate aircraft.
The G-V is based on the Gulfstream IV, but features a number of substantial changes to suit its different design objectives. The most obvious change is the stretched fuselage; the G-V is 2.49m (8ft 2in) longer overall than the G-IV. Capable of carrying up to 16 people in standard seating configurations, and able to fly up to 6,500 nautical miles (7,480 miles, 12,038 km), the G-V became the longest range business jet ever made.
