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. 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 completely comfortable interior.

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. 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.
