Gulfstream G550 reviews

Although the larger, faster and slightly longer-legged G650 has replaced the G550 as the manufacturer’s flagship in recent years, the earlier aircraft remains in production and popular. You can pick up a 10-year-old copy for about the same price you’d pay for a new super-midsize bizjet—or sometimes even less.

Awesome. That’s the word that kept running through my mind when I first stepped into the new Gulfstream 550 cockpit. The aviation industry has been talking about glass cockpits for more than 20 years, but Gulfstream has finally done it.

Mac McClellan


When it was debuted in 2003, it was the most capable airplane Gulfstream had ever produced. Gulfstream now sells more modern versions, but the G550, with its numerous variants, retains its appeal among clients from the corporate sector, governments, and even militaries.
