Gulfstream Aerospace’s Gulfstream G650ER has completed a record-breaking flight en route to the MEBAA 2018 in Dubai, shaving one hour and 48 minutes off the previous record flight time from New York to Dubai.
The G650ER flew from Teterboro, New Jersey, to Dubai, a distance of 6,142 nautical miles (11,375km), in just 11 hours and two minutes. The flight was completed at an average speed of Mach 0.90.
Pending approval by the National Aeronautic Association, this record will be the G650 family’s 79th.
Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream, commented, “Time and again, the G650ER has demonstrated its performance agility. And this is another one of those times. No other aircraft offers the high-speed range utility that the G650ER does out of high-demand airports like Teterboro. This proves yet again that the G650ER remains in a class by itself.”
More than 325 G650 and G650ER aircraft operate around the world, including more than 30 in the Middle East alone. The G650ER, along with the rest of the Gulfstream fleet, will be on display at Dubai World Central from December 10-12.
