The large-cabin, long-range Gulfstream G450 business jet, which was introduced at the 2003 National Business Aviation Association’s annual meeting, is an entire aircraft upgrade of the Gulfstream GIV/GIV-SP/G400. With the ability to accommodate 12 to 16 passengers, travel 4,350 nautical miles and cruise at speeds up to Mach 0.88, the G450 can handle domestic and international flights with ease. The G450 is powered by upgraded Tay 611-8C Rolls-Royce engines. Combined with aerodynamic and material improvements, its flight and performance characteristics provide greater fuel efficiency and lower operating costs. The G450 features the PlaneView cockpit as well as Gulfstream’s Enhanced Vision System. Every G450 is backed by an excellent warranty and award-winning service and product support. On Aug. 12, 2004, the G450 received a Type Certificate from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
