Routes in the sky swathed in luxury
Trajectories, routes, points of exchange. Today the sky looks like a grid pattern. Yes, but a cage of freedom, in which travellers, tourists and businessmen move at previously unthinkable speeds, connecting up the four corners of a large, but increasingly small, world. In the eternal race against time. Climbing onboard the new Gulfstream G600, frequent flyers will appreciate the saving of more than 50 hours of travel time over the year compared to other aircraft on the market thanks to the power the Pratt & Whitney engines, which are capable of producing a speed of Mach 0.85 and range of 6,500 nautical miles/12,038 kilometres, and a greater range/saving at Mach 0.90. All in total safety thanks to the innovative Gulfstream Symmetry Flight Deck ™ with active control sidesticks and touch-screen avionics interfaces, EVS - Enhanced Vision System, which boosts the resolution of the infrared sensor, and Synthetic Vision System, which produces artificial images of terrain, obstacles, runways and approaches on the primary flight display. It offers the best in comfort and efficiency, with wooden inserts, ergonomic seats, shower and galley; the cabin design is harmonious, sound-proof, luminous, and available in ten different options - for working, eating, relaxing. It has reliable internet connectivity and wide coverage on Ka-band technology (up to 15 Mbps or almost 5 time faster) for live streaming, displaying documents or watching a favourite film. Streaking over the clouds at 562 mph (cruise speed) thanks to the powerful Rolls-Royce BR710A2-20 turbofans is the Bombardier Global 6000, equipped with very advanced Rockwell Collins Pro Line Fusion avionics, and Global Vision Flight Deck (HUD), with 15.1 inch (diagonal) displays, advanced graphics, optimized controls for correct, safe flight, Multiscan weather radar, cockpit with brushed metallic controls and carbon fibre accents, and ergonomic seats with double stitched leather. A stylistic continuum that blends perfectly with the rest of the large, and bright cabin, which features armchairs and sofas in pale cream leather. It also offers all the latest technologies for connection to current and future electronic devices, such as Apple TVTM, ChromecastTM, Blu-ray DVD players and SonyTM Playstation 4TM. With greater width, higher armrests and sculpted backrest, the seats allow passengers to enjoy a pleasurable experience, especially on a long-haul trip, whether travel is for pure entertainment or to continue working even when in the air. This cosy environment is divided into three zones, with galley between the cockpit and passenger cabin, peaceful aft stateroom with large windows infusing light and private cabin at the rear with private bathroom and shower. It is, instead, the technological know-how in aerodynamics and structural design based on military expertise (fighters) behind the Dassault Falcon 2000LXS, which, although powered by two Pratt & Whitney Canada PW308C turbofans (7,000 pounds each; range: 4,000 nm -7,410 km Mach 0.80 with six passengers), surprises for its quietness and the
stylised elegance of a spacious cabin that is able to hold ten passengers and is equipped with an application to control entertainment, window shades, lighting and temperature. The interior space, which offers flexibility in the choice of fittings, is ideal for hosting groups for meetings (at high altitude, with maximum productivity even in areas of the world very far from the place of departure), thanks to advanced connectivity and the new Rockwell Collins Falcon Cabin HD+ management system with HD display on monitors of up to 22 inches and wireless control functions from any point on the aircraft and from any Apple iOS devices. Aerodynamic research and the design of the larger, squared wing, which optimises stability and efficiency at high speeds, can be seen in its performance at challenging airports and in the flexibility of the aircraft to perform a steep approach (at, for example, London City, Lugano), land and take off on short runways (directly at 41,000 feet/12,497 metres in just 20 minutes), and to fly distances that are impossible for many. This is due to its robust structure, manoeuvrability, safety and operating costs far superior to any other business jet. On typical intercontinental flights without stops between cities such as Paris and New York (at a cruise speed of 508 mph and a range of 4,603 miles), Singapore and Sydney or Mauritius, the engines produce 40% less emissions that other similar jets. The interior design has been revolutionised by transforming the
style features into a design similar to that of a motor-yacht on the Embraer - Lineage 1000E, which offers the versatility of five cabin areas and a myriad of configurations, with spaces designed like a home away from home. Five different design concepts characterise the interior: mahogany, brass and leather, like a superyacht (The Skyacht One); expansive windows to infuse light (The Kyoto Airship); bleached wood, European fabrics, saddle-stitched leather and English wool, onyx and engraved horn (Skyranch); furnishings that evoke the art of 1930s Manhattan (The Manhattan); and the glitzy glamour of gold-toned bar stools, tufted divans and marble-toned walls (The Hollywood). The business jet has reinvented itself and is transformed into a living room, offering unique, customised design according to individual needs - dining, working, relaxation, sleeping - but always, however, with spacious well-equipped cabins, a large bed and shower area (master suite optional), food and drinks service, the largest baggage compartment accessible in flight of any executive jet, the technology of Honeywell Ovation® Select, the cabin management system with a wide range of entertainment, and the Honeywell Primus Epic integrated avionics system for flight control and communication and fly-by-wire system. GE turbofans with excellent fuel efficiency and modular design. The sky is truly the limit. Like luxury. You just have to choose the right jet.
