One of the most comfortable, luxurious, and classiest ways to travel, whether just across a few states or around the world, is to fly by private jet charter. Among the myriad of choices available to jet charter customers, and especially here at evoJets Charter, some of the most popular private charter aircraft are from the Gulfstream Series. Many feel that Gulfstream builds the very highest in top quality aircraft and the company has quite a following among the savvy jetset, casual charter customers, and pilots alike. Read on to find out more about these exceptional aircraft and why they are the some of the most preferred among evoJets customers and in the industry.
The Gulfstream G150 provides excellent value in its mid-size class, with superior range at top speed, sophisticated avionics, and a truly comfortable cabin for up to 8 passengers. Passengers will enjoy generous stand-up headroom, legroom, and aisle space in any of several possible cabin configurations. A Honeywell environmental control system keeps the cabin atmosphere pleasant and stable. The G150 uses the high thrust Honeywell TFE731-40AR engines, with improved fuel efficiency. These, along with a number of aerodynamic improvements over the G150’s predecessor, help make it one of the fastest mid-sized business aircraft available, at a maximum speed of 630 mph. The aircraft’s maximum range is nearly 3400 miles, which is among the longer possible ranges for mid-size jets.
The super-midsize Gulfstream G200 was originally produced as the IAI Galaxy. Its large cabin can be arranged for 8 to 10 passengers with alternate seating for up to 18, and seating can be configured in a double club layout, a combination club and divan arrangement, or a combination club, divan, and conference layout to suit travelers’ needs. The cabin has a stand-up height of 6 feet 3 inches, large plush seating, and sunny oval windows. A dual climate control system provides travelers with fresh air rather than recirculated air. The G200’s technology and entertainment systems include Airshow flight info, an ICG-200 Iridium SATCOM phone, a DVD player and individual headphones/controls for each passenger. The external baggage hold can store 125 cubic feet or 2400 pounds of luggage. Two fuel efficient Pratt & Whitney PW306A engines give the Gulfstream G200 exceptional transcontinental range.
The Gulfstream G450 was created next in the G-IV long-range series of aircraft, after the G400. This upgraded heavy jet has similar seating arrangements to its predecessor, typically allowing seating for 12 to 16 and providing ample space for travelers to move and stretch. The maximum capacity can hold up to 19 passengers, with optional berthing for six. One improved cabin feature is the use of an advanced soundproofing system to increase passengers’ total comfort. Other interior amenities may include individual entertainment systems, some office equipment, a well-equipped galley, full-width lavatory, and more. New speed records have been set by the G450, which can operate at a maximum speed of Mach 0.88 or 561 mph. The aircraft has an increased range of up to 5002 miles, making intercontinental flights easy and comfortable. These statistics are made possible by the two Rolls Royce Tay Mark 611-8C turbofan engines by which the aircraft is powered.
The Gulfstream G500 was originally produced as the G-V and is an ultra-long range business jet with a large cabin to match. A variety of seating arrangements are available for 8 to 19 passengers with separate areas for dinner, entertainment, work, or rest. The cabin of the G500 offers a combination of cozy club seats, four-place divans, and conference/dining groupings set in a maximum of four distinct sections. The cabin area can be divided into three different temperature zones and the environment is enhanced by a fresh air system and sunlight streaming through 12 oval windows. The G500 entertainment system includes DVD and CD players, LCD monitors, and an Airshow info system. The cabin also features a full-size galley and a spacious lavatory with shower. Earlier engines have been replaced with newer BMW/Rolls Royce BR-700-710-C4-11 turbofan engines, providing the G500 with a super long range.
The Gulfstream G550, or G-V-SP, is an even longer range upgrade of the G500. The G550’s cabin is much the same as the previous model, seating anywhere from 8 to 19 passengers in a variety of spacious, comfortable arrangements. Four sections combine club seating, lengthy divans, and a dining/conference area with a fully-equipped galley and a luxurious private lavatory. Technological office features may include satellite communications, a fax machine and printer, wireless LAN, and on some aircraft, a broadband link for internet access. The G550 uses the same transcontinental-flying Rolls-Royce BR710 turbofan engines as the G500, but with a greater fuel capacity to give it that extra stretch of range.
