Aviation International News calls the Gulfstream G500 “a bold move for a manufacturer as conservative as Gulfstream yet also a logical progression in business jet design.”
Aviation Week adds, “Gulfstream officials fully appreciate that the G500 represents more than just a new model. It’s a step-change in aircraft design that is the basis for the new G700 flagship and other unannounced models in the pipeline.”
It’s a clean sheet replacement for the G450 and GIV platforms, and Robb Report notes the differences. “The interior space has grown as well and now features six feet and four inches of headroom…The cabin is 41.5 feet long with an open layout that accommodates a total of 10 seats, a comfy three-person sofa stacked with pillows, and a big TV on a credenza facing the aft dining area.”
You can also fly nonstop from New York to Moscow or Dallas to Buenos Aires at Mach .90, just under 700 miles per hour.
It seats up to 13 passengers.
The list price for a new G500 is $45 million.
Used G500s are priced from $34 million.
