  • FLIGHT TEST: Gulfstream goes farther and faster with G650ER

    News | 06 Mar 2015 11:24 | Mike Gerzanics

    It has been over ten years since I flew a large cabin Gulfstream when, I was awed by the G550’s ability to fly eight passengers in comfort over 12,500km (6,760nm). With the clean sheet G650 Gulfstream has advanced the state of the art in several areas. Since it received FAA certification in September  2012, over 100 examples of the large cabin ultra-long range twin jet have been delivered. The G650ER is an enhanced range version of the G650, offering sumptuous accommodations and a 925km range increase. When Flight International was offered an opportunity to fly the G650ER, I was excited to see just how far Gulfstream had raised the bar over the last decade.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/FLIGHT-TEST-Gulfstream-goes-farther-and-faster-with-G650ER-409557/

  • ANALYSIS: Southeast Asia’s long-haul, low-cost renaissance

    News | 20 Jun 2014 08:39 | Greg Waldron

    No one will confuse Southeast Asia’s long-haul, low-cost carriers with their staid, full service rivals. Campbell Wilson, chief executive of Singapore’s Scoot, once held a competition with a colleague aboard a Boeing 777-200ER operating the Bangkok-Singapore route. He announced that each of them would push a duty free sales cart down an aisle. The colleague who sold the most would become “CEO for a day.” The passengers loved it, but unfortunately Wilson found himself out of work for a day: he was only able to sell S$120 ($95) worth of goods against the colleague’s S$360.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/ANALYSIS-Southeast-Asias-long-haul-low-cost-renaissance-400621/
