The Gulfstream V (GV) is an ultra-luxurious, ultra-long-range business jet capable of carrying passengers up to 6,500nm, completing non-stop flights from New York to Tokyo and London to Singapore with ease.

About this aircraft

  • The GV was manufactured by Gulfstream between 1995 and 2002.
  • The aircraft is renowned for its impressive range – able to travel almost 6,500nm with its maximum payload of 6,600lbs, meaning up to 16 passengers can fly non-stop from London to Singapore.
  • There is plenty of room for luggage in the GV. With around 30 items of luggage able to fit in the hold, each passenger can bring up to two suitcases each (assuming your average piece of luggage is less than 5 cubic feet).
  • The GV is certified to fly at 51,000ft, which means it has the potential to avoid most air traffic, and can cruise at over 550mph.
  • At 96.42ft long and 25.83ft high, the cabin is slightly more spacious than Gulfstream's G500 and G550.
  • The most popular configuration seats 13 passengers, usually featuring a four-place club arrangement, two-place club, divan in the mid-cabin, and four-place conference seating in the aft section.

Certified in 1997, the GV was one of the first ultra-long-range private jets that allowed passengers to travel long distances in spacious luxury in double-quick time. Over the years, the GV has also become renowned for its long-term performance and reliability. Some would argue it’s the benchmark against which all ultra-long-range business jets are judged.

Interior design

The GV’s interior cabin is spacious, bright and inviting, giving passengers plenty of room to move around in comfort. Its length also gives it an advantage over competitors. Gulfstream has utilised the extra room to create three distinct cabin zones (depending on configuration) and a 266ft³ luggage hold at the back of the plane.

There are numerous cabin variations available, but one of the more typical has 13 passenger seats and two crew seats. The Gulfstream V’s amenities include separate lavatories for passengers and crew, a full-sized galley, power outlets, fold-out tables, satellite TV, fold-out work tables and multimedia entertainment systems. Despite the aircraft’s powerful engines, the cabin is quiet and ideal for overnight long-haul flights.

Interesting facts to know before you fly

  • The signature cabin windows on a Gulfstream aircraft are particularly large. This, along with their sleek oval shape, allows an abundance of natural light to enter the cabin during the flight. They’re also positioned so you can see the world below from the comfort of your seat.
  • The interior design and true stand-up headroom make the aircraft feel incredibly spacious.
  • Production of the aircraft ended in 2003 with the introduction of the G500 and G550 models. These feature essentially the same aircraft/engine combination, with upgraded avionics and slightly different weights and ranges.

Technological features

The cockpit’s avionics system is built around the Honeywell SPX-8500 suite. One of its optional features is rather notable: a HUD and Kollman/Opgal enhanced vision system (EVS) that gives the Gulfstream V the ability to land in harsh conditions with limited or no visibility.

The aircraft is outfitted with two BMW/Rolls-Royce BR710-48 engines, each providing up to 14,750lbs of thrust. These provide the huge amount of power necessary for the GV to travel intercontinental distances at high speeds. It can climb to 37,000 feet in just 18 minutes and is certified to fly as high as 51,000 feet.


Perhaps the most remarkable aspect of the GV is that it was built at all. The aircraft was produced when Gulfstream was in the throes of significant turmoil, both internally and externally, as it struggled to compete with Bombardier and Dassault.

Shortly before the GV made its first flight in November 1995, Gulfstream had turned a corner and the company achieved a modest profit in 1994. Despite this, the GV was a huge financial risk. The aircraft required new avionics and engines, a longer wing, a stretched fuselage and a lot more range than the GIV.

Gulfstream's gamble paid off and the aircraft hit the ground running, winning the National Aeronautic Association's Collier Trophy for aeronautical achievement. It featured a six-screen Honeywell digital avionics system that was extremely advanced for the time and in many ways still is today. Over 190 Gulfstream Vs were produced from 1995 to 2002.


Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation is an American aircraft company based in Savannah, Georgia and a wholly-owned subsidiary of General Dynamics. The company that evolved into Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation started in the late 1950s when Grumman Aircraft Engineering Co., known for military aircraft production, developed a twin-turboprop business aircraft at its facilities in Bethpage, New York, called the Grumman Gulfstream I (G-I). Gulfstream now designs, develops, manufactures, markets and services the latest business jet aircraft and has produced more than 2,000 since 1958.


In 2002, a new GV sold for $42.2 million. Now, the price of a second-hand Gulfstream V would cost from $10 million to $14 million.
