Empire Aviation Group (EAG), Dubai-based global private aviation specialist, has added a second brand new Gulfstream G650 to its managed fleet in Dubai. EAG was involved in the entire completion and acceptance process. The privately owned aircraft will join the company’s growing fleet of ultra-long-range managed aircraft.
The Gulfstream G650 is a large cabin, Rolls-Royce powered business jet with a long-range cruise speed of Mach 0.85 and a range of 7,000 nautical miles/12,964 kilometers (nonstop) with eight passengers and four crew. The G650 can be configured for up to 18 passengers and offers the comforts of a wide cabin with large panoramic windows and low cabin pressure, and a bundle of inflight technology including broadband internet to keep passengers connected, informed and entertained, whilst putting them in control of the environment through a cabin management system. Advanced cockpit technology helps pilots improve aircraft performance.
Paras P. Dhamecha, Executive Director of Empire Aviation Group, comments: “The G650 has impressed the EAG team enormously with its overall performance – speed, quietness, comfort and range. We managed on behalf of the owner the exterior and interior selection, the aircraft pre-delivery inspections, induction and registration and all the crew requirements. With two G650s on our managed fleet and a third in the pipeline, this will make EAG one of the few major operators of the G650 in the region.”
Empire Aviation Group has rapidly expanded its international operations over the last three years, with the group’s first fully fledged overseas branch in Bangalore, India; a dedicated US aircraft sales office in Scottsdale, Arizona, USA; new operations set up in Hong Kong; as well as a San Marino branch.
