[Avionics Today 11-17-2014] Gulfstream Aerospace recently delivered the first fully outfitted G650ER business jet to a customer, ahead of the 2015 projected delivery date.
Gulfstream announced the G650ER in May of this year and the aircraft received type certification from the FAA five months later. Like its predecessor, the G650, the G650ER offers improved cabin amenities, performance-enhancing safety features and advanced avionics.
"It's a good day when you can deliver on your promises ahead of schedule," said Larry Flynn, president of Gulfstream. "This aircraft delivers speed and range, providing passengers a world-class travel experience."
