Each new version has offered more range, speed, cabin comfort and fuel efficiency. Engineers pursued low-risk, evolutionary approaches in creating each new model.
Compared to the GV, the G550 has four main improvements: improved takeoff performance, slightly more range and fuel efficiency, better cabin space utilization and the Plane View flight deck featuring Honeywell Primus Epic avionics.
A seventh pair of windows is added to the fuselage, several drag reduction details boost range by 250 nm and the entry door is moved 2 ft. forward to increase usable cabin length and boost net cabin volume by 58 cu. ft.
More net storage capacity is available in the aft baggage bay due to the installation of conformal water tanks and a relocated vacuum lav waste tank.
