With its reliability, efficiency and durability, the G550 is a valuable tool for the Polish government,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream. “Gulfstream has more experience in producing and supporting government and special mission aircraft than any other business jet manufacturer.


The G550 is the most widely used in-production Gulfstream model for special missions and government applications. The aircraft is already performing VIP transport missions for many Air Forces in the world, such as the Moroccan Air Force, the Nigerian Air Force and the Swedish Air Force.

The G550 is powered by two Rolls-Royce BR710 C4-11 high-ratio bypass turbofan. It has an operational range of 12,000 km and a service ceiling of 15,545 m. The G550 can accomodate up to 19 passengers.
