Gulfstream Aerospace G550 profile, including current pricing, manufacturing dates, cabin size and passenger capacity, range, speed, baggage space, fractional ownership and jet card options
Gulfstream G550 Facts
Although the Gulfstream G550 debuted in 2003, in December 2019 Gulfstream delivered its 600th of the type. In fact, over 20% of the OEM’s active fleet are 550s.
As popular as the G550 has been, neither NetJets or Flexjet offers it, and there are limited jet card options.
One reason is that owners who have their G550s on a Part 135 certificate often are using them, so having the type of availability needed for a dedicated jet card isn’t there.
However, you will find the G550 for on-demand charter and in the mix or large or ultra-long-haul private jets offered in cabin category jet cards.
While the list price for a new G550 is $62 million, used aircraft are currently listed starting at $16 million.
