Technology entrepreneur, Elon Musk owns a $70 million Gulfstream G650ER. The Jet was built in 2015 and later delivered to Musk in 2016. Musk reportedly flew 150,000 miles on his private jet in 2018. Here’s an inside look at his Gulfstream G650ER.
American aircraft company, Gulfstream Aerospace’s long-haul G650 reportedly sets new standards for comfort, functionality, and safety for contemporary business jets. It is featured with Rolls Royce BR725 engines and has a highly efficient thrust reverse system, optimised wing aerodynamics, and shows excellent take-off and landing characteristics both in conditions of high-temperature and high-altitude. Apart from which it also offers an opportunity for a record intercontinental flight range of 12964km.
It is said to be the fastest civilian aircraft in the world based on developing the highest speed of 977km/h. The jet also has the ability to climb to the highest altitude of 15545m and evade zones of turbulence. Equipped with hi-tech cockpit PlaneViewII, the G650 model extends many advanced flight safety features. The cabin admeasures 2.59m with a height of 1.95m and it is the largest salon in this class.
When it comes to its interiors it resonates with extra space for the head and legs, more space for kitchen, recreational areas and toilet facilities. The seats are reportedly comfortable and have a larger passage between them. The feeling of spaciousness is reiterated with the wide armchairs and spacious aisles, and 16 panoramic Gulfstream windows, which are larger than any other business jet. Fliers can enjoy the microclimate with better pressure, which reduces the level of discomfort from the flight and fatigue and also supports excellent well-being.
The G650ER’s interiors are filled with absolutely fresh air every two minutes. And the jet provides complete hospitality with a digital audio system, high-definition video equipment, a large-format television system, a convection oven, wine glasses, and more. The Gulfstream G650ER is a truly high-class aircraft with its ability to fly at a cruising altitude of 15,545m (51,000ft), above commercial flight and weather conditions.
