When the G650 entered service in 2012, followed by the G650ER in 2014, the aircraft redefined business aviation. The G650 earned the 2014 Robert J. Collier Trophy for its performance, safety and efficiency innovations, and continues to set industry standards. In 2022, the aircraft completed a flight using 100% sustainable aviation fuel (SAF), a business-jet industry original equipment manufacturer first.

“We could not be more pleased that the G650 program — synonymous with business aviation excellence — has been serving our customers for over a decade,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream. “This milestone is a true testament to our precision manufacturing, state-of-the-art design, world-class Gulfstream Customer Support, and commitment to continuously improve our customers’ operating experience.”
