Capabilities of the G450
Behind the power of the G450 are the dual Rolls-Royce Tay Mk 611-8C engines, which have been proven time and time again both in the G450 and in other successful aircraft. Surprisingly, these engines consume a relatively low amount of fuel in relation to thrust power they provide. The G450’s long range of 4,350 nautical miles and high cruising speeds can be attributed to state-of-the-art aerodynamic design and increased fuel capacity. Furthermore, part of the aircraft’s structure utilizes Kevlar and graphite-epoxy composites to promote light-weight design. The cockpit is heavily outfitted with CRT-based navigational instruments allowing the pilot to have immediate access to pertinent flight systems including radar, FMS, and EICAS. Supplemented with an innovative Enhanced Vision System, the cockpit allows the pilot to have full awareness at all times even in situations with poor visibility. The Gulfstream G450 is a revolutionary improvement on an already legendary series of aircraft. It is a superb option for business travelers who prioritize speed, range, reliability, and comfort.
