The Gulfstream G650 delivers a redefined experience for pilots and passengers with new technology that sets a new standard across business jets all around the world. By testing their long, unfettered wing, the Gulfstream G650 creates a unique flying environment that ensures a smooth ride for everyone.
The Gulfstream G650 provides its travelers enough space for long trips providing room for up to 19 passengers and 10 sleeping areas. This cabin, created with advanced technology, allows business owners and operators the ability to customize their surroundings and increase comfort.
As one of the many upgrades to the G650, Honeywell’s IntuVue® 3D weather radar provides a comprehensive display to increase situational awareness and reduce weather-related delays. With this information, pilots are able to see and avoid storms and turbulence with airborne weather radar. On average, turbulence-related incidents cost airlines an average of $150,000 per incident.
Gulfstream’s G650 provides pilots and aircraft owners with one of the most advanced avionics platform in operation today. Gulfstream’s PlaneView cockpit, derived from Honeywell’s Primus Epic cockpit display systems, delivers a comprehensive solution to make software upgrades quick and easy.
To improve safety, Honeywell offers a software upgrade to enhance ground proximity warning systems (EGPWS), SmartRunway® and SmartLanding®. With these additions, pilots are more aware of their surroundings and positional awareness so that they’re able to minimize runway incursions and excursions.
Another feature many operators take advantage of when using SmartRunway and SmartLanding is visual messaging to the already popular runway advisory and awareness system (RAAS.) This allows installation flexibility, which gives pilots timely information and an overall quieter cockpit environment.
