I've been curious as to how the G-650 program is going. I went to Gulfstream.com and saw that it was actually a year ago today the 13th of March that it was announced. Any updates on the program and how many clients Gulfstream has for this beauty?
I would also like to know wether the 650 is being assembled in SAV and when the first flight is. I can not wait until this beauty flies.

I went back to recurrent 3 months, according to my FSI instructor, the program still ging strong, everything remains as planned. They had 600 customers-orders on the list, so basically if your company wants to buy one, the earliest slot is 2018.

Due to the ignorant and vicious media ( I hate the media with a passion), and their assault on corporate aviation, Gulfstream has had some cancellations. But they still have plenty of customers for that airplane.

In this current environment, it is hard to believe they have customers for an airplane worth almost $60 mil. Specially seeing as the G-550, Global 700 and Falcon 7X can do 6000+ NM routes with ease.

Had the opportunity to visit the cabin mockup and research area in SAV about a month ago. Program is still in full swing and the design engineer who accompanied us said that there appeared to be some fallout from the global econmic crisis but its effect on production would be minimal. That was before Gulfstream announced 1300 layoffs a few weeks ago though.

My definition of cool ? Not trying so hard to be cool.
