GulfStream V Charter Flights
Gulfstream V Private Jet Charters
Anytime you have a business jet that wins the coveted Robert J. Collier Trophy, you know you’re onto a good thing. And that’s exactly what happened when the Gulfstream V entered service in 1997. This distinguished honor recognizes advancements in design and manufacturing techniques in the aviation industry, of which the V has plenty.
For starters, the Gulfstream V (formally the GV) enjoys impeccable pedigree. It is the bigger, longer-legged successor to the GIV, which was a massively successful private jet charter in its own right.
It also represents Gulfstream’s first foray in the ultra-long-range jet market. This is a very exclusive and highly competitive segment in business aviation, and the Gulfstream V more than holds its own.
It boasts a maximum range of 6,500 nautical miles, which is enough to fly nonstop from:
And it does it at exceptionally quick speeds. The V flies at a high cruise speed of 561 mph and is certified to soar a service ceiling of 51,000 feet. However, its standard cruise speed is 528 mph. With a climb rate of 2,055 feet-per-minute, it reaches 37,000 feet in less than 20 minutes.
Another advantage of the Gulfstream V is its payload capacity. It has the ability to fly more than 5,400 nm with a maximum payload of 6,100 pounds.
These high-end performance characteristics are due in large part to the V’s powerful Rolls-Royce BR700-710A1-10 twin turbofan engines. These represented a significant upgrade over the Rolls-Royce Tay engines used in the GIV. Furthermore, engineers designed the V have increased horizontal tail area and larger wingspan. As a result, it benefited from increased:
- Top air speed
- Maximum takeoff and landing weights
Gulfstream produced more than 190 GVs between 1997 and 2002. The Gulfstream 500 eventually superseded it, and is still in production today.
They were a popular transport aircraft of the American military, and were often chosen to fly defense department officials to high-level engagements across the globe.

In its standard configuration, the GV carries up to 14 business or leisure travelers in total luxury. While in flight, executives enjoy ample space and a whisper-like quiet cabin environment to:
