The Gulfstream G450 is a large-cabin private jet designed and manufactured by Gulfstream Aerospace.
It was developed in parallel with the G550, the first time that Gulfstream developed two new models concurrently, meaning it benefited from systems developed for the G550.

Development of the G450 began in the late 1990s, with the first prototype making its maiden flight on April 30, 2003. The aircraft underwent an extensive testing and certification process, receiving its type certificate from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in August 2004.
Production of the G450 was from 2004 until 2018, when Gulfstream Aerospace announced that it would replace it with the G500. During its production run, Gulfstream Aerospace delivered over 360 G450s to customers around the world.
The cabin of the G450 is 45.1 feet long, 7.3 feet wide, and 6.2 feet tall.
The G450 is powered by two Rolls-Royce Tay 611-8C turbofan engines, which provide a maximum cruise speed of Mach 0.88 and a range of up to 4,350 nautical miles (5,000 miles). It has a maximum takeoff weight of 74,600 pounds and a maximum altitude of 45,000 feet.
The price for a used G450 starts at around $11 million.
when carefully compared with the older GIV, the G450 evidences some pronounced differences-even in the airframe. The G450's fuselage is 12 inches longer, and the cabin entry door has been moved three feet to the right, creating a cockpit that is 30 percent larger.

Typically priced at $7 million to $8 million on the resale market, the G450 is one of the least expensive, large-cabin aircraft capable of flying eight passengers over 4,200 nm at Mach 0.80 and landing with 200-nm NBAA IFR reserves. It has nearly 200 nm more range than the first- or second-generation GIV or GIV-SP aircraft
The G450, a $30 million jet, is built for comfort and range. It can travel up to 4,350 nautical miles, or roughly the distance from London to Seattle, on a single tank of fuel.
