Every aspect of the all-new Gulfstream G500’s design and performance is dedicated to the fastest flight possible, while in the cabin, every detail is devoted to providing a uniquely personalized and comfortable interior. The all-new Gulfstream G500 stretches the limits of high-speed travel. The advanced airframe design and powerful Pratt & Whitney Canada engines give the aircraft a range of 5,200 nautical miles/9,630 kilometers at Mach 0.85. The G500’s nonstop reach connects distant cities such as Istanbul to Cape Town, South Africa; Los Angeles to London; and San Francisco to Tokyo.
The aircraft outdistances all peers above Mach 0.85 and is the only jet in its class to combine incredible speed with significant range—4,400 nautical miles/8,149 kilometers—when flying at Mach 0.90. The G500 blazes across the sky at a maximum Mach of 0.925. Payload isn’t sacrificed for speed and range. A fully fueled G500 covers 5,200 nautical miles/9,630 kilometers at Mach 0.85 with eight passengers and luggage. Double the payload and the G500 still flies up to 4,950 nautical miles/9,167 kilometers nonstop, enough to fly from Los Angeles to London.
With a width of 7 feet 11 inches/2.41 meters and a height of 6 feet 4 inches/1.93 meters, the all-new Gulfstream G500 cabin is the optimal size and shape to help produce best-in-class speed, maneuverability and fuel efficiency, yet it’s still large enough to carry 19 passengers.
The aircraft’s uniquely shaped cross-section translates to plentiful elbow and shoulder room for seated passengers while also offering plenty of headroom as passengers move about the cabin. The 27-inch-/68.5-centimeter-wide seats include an articulating footrest for comfortable reclining. Pedestal-mounted conference tables provide stability for working and are height adjustable. High-speed communications and entertainment equipment allow the cabin to double as an office in the sky or a media room.
Gulfstream is the only aircraft manufacturer in the G500’s class to offer the option of a forward or aft galley. With an interior cabin length of 41 feet 6 inches/12.65 meters, the G500 offers exceptional space for an owner to design and arrange multiple areas for work, relaxation or entertainment to his or her liking.
A next-generation Enhanced Vision System heightens pilot awareness in low visibility. An improved infrared sensor boosts resolution by 400 percent, and camera advancements provide a wider field of view. The EVS is linked to a head-up display, allowing the pilot to view images on a transparent screen positioned in his or her field of vision. Gulfstream is the first business aviation company to offer this third-generation EVS, and it comes as standard equipment on the G500.
Flight deck styling is also re-envisioned in the G500. A blend of leather, brushed nickel and glass produces a flight deck as attractive and comfortable as it is intuitive. The crew seats pan fully from side to side for ease of movement and are made from perforated leather with a ventilated mesh for greater comfort.
Gulfstream also takes the inner workings of the G500 to new levels of sophistication, creating computer-controlled systems that further enhance efficiency and safety. The highly redundant Intelligence-by-Wire™ takes fly-by-wire technology to the next level. Intelligence-by-Wire incorporates flight controls, autopilot, auto-throttle and auto braking for smoother flight and peak engine performance.
