There are fourteen of Gulfstream’s signature oval windows fill the cabin with natural light, while the aircraft pulls in fresh air and combined with a cabin pressurized to a very low altitude, the result is a subtle, but effective method to help passengers stay alert and focused. Low-altitude pressurization requires less exertion from the body and ensures passengers arrive at their destinations refreshed and alert.
The G550’s quiet interior also improves the cabin experience. Advanced sound suppression techniques keep engine noise outside the cabin.
Like all Gulftream aircraft, safety is the first priority. The G550’s cockpit is fitted with a triple-redundant flight management system that allows pilots to have command of enhanced and essential flight data. Using two side-mounted Cursor Control Devices (CCDs), pilots can select and scroll where and how they want to see airways, airports, navigational aids and radar data.
