Gulfstream G500

    For the globe-trotting traveler, the long legs of the G500 (introduced in 2002) can connect Los Angeles to Tokyo or London to Johannesburg without a stop. The quiet cabin stretches 50 feet, with four seating areas and 14 panoramic oval windows. A service ceiling of 51,000 feet allows the G500 to climb above most weather and traffic, and in the unlikely event of sudden depressurization at altitude, the airplane will automatically descend to thicker air at 15,000 feet. The Gulfstream PlaneView flight deck, based on Honeywell avionics, offers an optional enhanced-vision system to assist the crew when operating at airports with low visibility.
