Gulfstream started the G650 project in May of 2005, and it was publicly released in March, 2008. The G650 is one of the fastest and largest jets that Gulfstream has made.
The G650's speed is 0.85 to 0.90 mach speed, with maximum speed of Mach 0.925 and a range of up to 7,000 nmi (13,000 km). The G650 jet has two Rolls-Royce BR725 engines that produce a maximum thrust force of 17,000 pounds (75.6 kN).
The G650's small weight of aproximately 100,000 lbs (45,400 kg) makes it easier to land in small airports, avoiding busy airports from other parts of the world.
