The epitome of luxury is offered through the Exclusive Charter Service (ECS). Based in Long Island at the MacArthur airport, ECS specializes in catering to jet setters and world travelers. The editorial video featured above was shot on the prestigious G550 which is best known for its ability to be in the air for an impressive 14 hoursa trip from New York to Dubai. If you need to charter a plane with only a few hours notice, ECS can arrange everything for you from ground transportation to private jet service and ensure that you reach your destination without a second wasted. ECS can also charter yachts, jets, helicopters and car services.
The Gulfstream G550® large-cabin, ultra-long range business jet turned heads right from the start. Less than two weeks after it entered service, a G550 flew nonstop from Seoul, South Korea, to Orlando, Fla., covering the 7,301 nautical-mile distance in 14.5 hours and setting a city pair record. In fact, it would go on to establish 40 city-pair records in its first five years of service.
This is a brawny aircraft with an international reach. Powered by enhanced Rolls-Royce BR710 turbofan engines, the G550 has a range of 6,750 nm at Mach 0.80 and a high-speed cruise capability of Mach 0.87. With its long legs, the G550 easily links Washington, D.C., with Dubai, London with Singapore and Tokyo with Paris.
The PlaneView cockpit is brimming with Gulfstream’s latest avionics achievements: the first fully synchronous triple Flight Management System, the Gulfstream Signature Cursor Control Device, which improves the way that pilots interact with the PlaneView avionics; then there’s the latest in Head-Up Display technology integrated with the next-generation Gulfstream Enhanced Vision System II™, which captures pictures of the environment and presents the pilot with a clear picture of runway markings, taxiways and surrounding terrain at night or in the worst weather conditions. Gulfstream was the first business jet manufacturer to certify an optional synthetic vision system on the G550. The optionalSynthetic Vision – Primary Flight Display adds to the enhanced situational awareness even in zero visibility conditions.
The cabin aboard the G550 combines productivity with exceptional comfort. It features up to four distinct living areas, three temperature zones, a choice of 12 floor planconfigurations with seating for up to 18 passengers. Maintaining contact with the home office is easy thanks to a host of standard communication features: a fax machine, a printer, a wireless local area network and satellite communications. As an option, consider Gulfstream’s Broad Band Multi Link, which combines fast Internet-connection speeds with low operating costs.
The value of this world-class airplane is readily apparent in its 6,750-nm range, its best-in-class cockpit, its advanced technology, its superb warranty, and Gulfstream’s top-rated customer support network that stands ready to render assistance on six continents.
And, finally, the team that developed the G550 was honored for its work with the Robert J. Collier Trophy, the most prestigious award in aviation today. We’re as proud of the honor as we are of the G550.
