  • Gulfstream G650

    Gulfstream has unveiled a new plane...First flight is scheduled for 2009 with deliveries scheduled to start in 2012...

    http://www.gulfstream.com/news/releases/2008/031308.htm

    The G650 offers the longest range, fastest speed, largest cabin and the most-advanced cockpit in the Gulfstream fleet. It is capable of traveling 7,000 nautical miles at 0.85 Mach or 5,000 nautical miles at 0.90 Mach. Using an advanced aerodynamic design, the G650 has a maximum operating speed of 0.925 Mach, which will make it the fastest civil aircraft flying. It can climb to a maximum altitude of 51,000 feet, allowing it to avoid airline-traffic congestion and adverse weather.

          The cabin is usually presurised at 8,000ft. This means around 1600 Pounds per square foot.

            Unless my math is screwed up (wouldn't be a first) typical cabin pressure for an 8,000 foot cabin runs about 8 PSID. 8 X 144 = 1152 pounds per square foot.

            Max PSID on a 747 is 9.2 X 144 = 1325 PPSF.

            It's a lot pressure in any event.

            A 5000 foot cabin at at FL510 would require about 12 PSID X 144 = 1728 PPSF.

                  Well I'm not a fool...I just can't afford it...anyone want to lend me approx $80mil?

                  On a side note, I talked with some folks down at Gulfstream FSI yesterday and they are saying that early 2009 will be the first flight.
