Its speed, range, and cabin size have made it a favorite among VIPs and leading corporations.

On March 29, the ultra-long-range G650ER flew from Singapore to Tucson, Arizona, in 15 hours and 23 minutes, with fuel in excess of NBAA IFR reserves, eclipsing by 44 minutes the record set earlier last month by a Bombardier Global 7500. The Gulfstream twinjet departed Changi Airport at 4:53 a.m. local time on March 29, and arrived in Tucson at 5:16 p.m. local time, covering the 8,379 nm at an average speed of 597 miles per hour. This also bested the 8,152-nm distance flown last month during the Global flight.

According to Gulstream, there are currently 350 G650 and G650ER in service.
