Gulfstream’s G500, which made its first test flight last May, will be capable of traveling nonstop from Los Angeles to London.
In October 2014, Gulfstream Aerospace formally launched two large-cabin jets designed to replace its G450 and G550 models: the G500 and the G600. The top speed for both aircraft is Mach 0.925, the same as for Gulfstream’s G650ER. With the introduction of the G500 and G600, all of the company’s large-cabin models will pay homage to the need for speed.

ACJ350
Five and eight may be small numbers, but Airbus is betting they’ll represent a big difference for its new A350-900 XWB (extra wide body). The model is five inches wider and, claims the manufacturer, 8 percent more fuel-efficient than Boeing’s 787, with which it will compete in the long-haul, twinjet market. In 2018, Airbus expects to introduce a stretched version of the aircraft, the A350-1000, to go head-to-head with Boeing’s even larger 777 twinjet.

Dassault revealed the $45 million Falcon 5X in late 2013. The first aircraft will fly this year and certification is likely in 2017.
Lots of products boast of being the biggest and most advanced, but Dassault’s new large-cabin 5X twinjet really delivers on those claims. Among other things, it changes the standard for cabin comfort, aircraft performance and ease of maintenance. And it provides an impressive template for follow-on aircraft.

Compared with the Cessna Citation Mustang, the Phenom 100 cruises 50 knots faster and weighs 1,000 pounds more (at maximum takeoff weight)
