The Gulfstream G650ER is the extended range version of the G650 model. It features larger fuel tanks allowing a maximum gross weight that is 4,000 pounds/1,814 kilograms greater than the G650, and providing flexibility to fly longer routes at higher cruise speeds.
The G650/G650ER fuselage cross section is a unique oval shape with 8 large (28 inch) cabin windows on each side. The wing uses greater sweep (36 degrees) than previous Gulfstream models and no leading-edge high-lift devices. Aircraft controls are completely fly-by-wire. The construction is metal for the fuselage and composite materials for the empennage, winglets and engine cowlings.
As of March 2021, 20% of the Gulfstream G650ER aircraft were purchased pre-owned by their current owners, the other 80% new. 1.5% are for sale with the majority of those (75%) under an exclusive broker agreement. When for sale the average time on the market is 264 days.
The Gulfstream G650 began production in 2012 and the G650ER model entered production in 2013. In 2014 four of the 2012 G650’s were upgraded to G650ER models. A total of 266 Gulfstream G650ER aircraft have been produced/modified with one retired and one at the manufacturer.
There are 264 Gulfstream G650ER aircraft in operation today. The majority of these (262) are wholly owned with 2 in shared ownership. 14% are currently leased. North America has the largest percentage of wholly owned Gulfstream G650ER aircraft (58%), followed by Asia (29%) and Europe (8%).
