In 1912, the journey from London to New York took seven days and nights by ship. Today, travelers on Gulfstream’s new flagship—the G650—can make that same journey in less than seven hours.

What a difference a century makes.

But more than speed, it’s time that is of the essence. Thomas Edison once said, “Time is really the only capital that any human being has, and the only thing he can’t afford to lose.” For that reason, aircraft have often been referred to as “time machines.”

Business aircraft do more than save time—they actually create time. Not in a literal sense, but in more practical and tangible ways by affording extra time to accomplish what is most important in life—more time to spend on your terms.

Business aircraft create time in a myriad of ways, from eliminating delays caused by extensive security and boarding processes and offering the flexibility to land at airports closer to your destination, to traveling on your schedule while providing a private and secure workspace while en route. Perhaps most importantly, business aircraft allow you to reach your most desired destination sooner—home. The G650 will deliver you there faster than any other civilian aircraft in the world flying close to Mach 1, the speed of sound.

Some say it’s not the destination but the journey that counts. That journey can now be enjoyed in the most comfortable and productive business aircraft cabin ever designed. From the largest windows in the industry, to the most advanced cabin management system ever devised, to the lowest cabin altitude of any business aircraft—the G650 has raised the bar as the new World Standard®. Those fortunate enough to experience the G650 will know one thing for certain—time flies.
