Gulfstream V-SPG500/G550 WITH BR710 ENGINES

Powered by two Rolls-Royce engines that provide the most thrust of any jet in its class, the Gulfstream G550 has a cruise range of 6,750 nautical miles /12,501 kilometers. The G550 flies from Shanghai to Los Angeles or New York to Dubai nonstop at Mach 0.80. London to Tokyo or to Los Angeles is nonstop at Mach 0.85. Fly all those miles without the delay of fueling stops or extra landing fees.

GULFSTREAM GIV-XG350/G450 WITH TAY 611-8C ENGINES

Functionality is a mainstay of the Gulfstream G450. This is an aircraft that offers more payload, more cabin configurations and has a cockpit equipped with advanced guidance systems, some of which aren’t even available outside the Gulfstream fleet.

The G450 also has an industry-leading time between overhaul (TBO) of 12,000 hours on its Rolls-Royce engines.

GULFSTREAM G-IV SERIESGIV/GIV-SP/G300/G400 WITH TAY 611-8 ENGINES

The Gulfstream IV Private Jet Aircaft is a significantly improved, larger version of the earlier G-II and G-III. First delivered in 1987 the G-IV is recognizable by its low/swept wing with winglets, its swept T-tail with swept horizontal stabilizer, and its two rear fuselage mounted engines.

More room was available because of the lengthened fuselage, so now each side has 6 large circular windows. It can seat up to 13 passengers and is piloted by a 2 man crew. The Gulfstream IV cruises at speeds up to 505 knots and has a range of 4,220 nautical miles.

BOMBARDIER CHALLENGER CL-600-2B19CRJ100/200/CL850 WITH GE CF-34 ENGINES

The Challenger 850 derives from Canadair’s Regional Jet series.  The regional jet featured greater cabin space and wingspan as well as a sturdier frame. Rebranded in 2003, the airliner became the Bombardier Challenger 850.  As a result, the 850 fuses the capabilities of a larger aircraft with the comfort and flexibility of an executive jet.

As a high-capacity business “shuttle,” the 850 requires a large powerhouse.  A pair of General Electric CF34-3B1 turbofan engines provide 8,729 lbs of thrust apiece.  Inspection interval is “on condition.”

The 850’s all-glass cockpit is equipped with the Collins Pro Line 4 digital avionics package, dual digital comm/nav radios, dual Litton INS and FMS, TCAS, GPWS and WXR-840 color weather radar. The system includes an all-digital highly integrated EFIS, dual FMSs and a two-screen EICAS (with full systems synoptics).

The 850 has undergone many design modifications from the former airliner, making the aircraft more reliable and performance-driven.  These include steel brakes in the place of carbon, computer-controlled fly-by-wire system, and single-point and over-fueling.  By redesigning its airframe, the 850 can carry an additional 4,000 lbs of fuel than its predecessor, increasing payload, range and takeoff weight.

For a larger aircraft, the Challenger 850 still compares with smaller, faster business jets in regards to performance.  The 850 can travel at .85 Mach and reach a certified flight ceiling of 41,000 feet.  During climb, it takes a relatively quick 32 minutes to reach 37,000 feet.  Its maximum takeoff weight is 53,000 lbs.

BOMBARDIER CHALLENGER CL-600-2B16CL604/605/650 WITH GE CF34 ENGINES

The Challenger 605 was introduced in early 2006 as an avionics and structural upgrade of the 604 design. It maintains all the features that make the Challenger 604 exceptional, while adding structural improvements such as larger cabin windows and a rounded tail cone. Innovative updates to the modern flight deck and cockpit instrumentation further enhance the performance capabilities of the Challenger 605.

A walk-about cabin, afforded by a widened fuselage, differentiates the Challenger from earlier aircraft in its class. Two seating sections are located between a forward gallery and aft lavatory. With a typical configuration of a four-chair club section and conference grouping or divans, the Challenger 605 carries up to 12 passengers in exceptional comfort, making it an ideal environment for business, relaxation and entertainment.

With a maximum flight range of 4,598 miles, at a cruise speed of up to 540 miles per hour, the Bombardier business aircraft can cross oceans and continental distances with ease and efficiency. Two General Electric CF34-3B engines, which each produces 8,729 lbs of thrust, give this long-range business jet the same outstanding performance as the 604.
