Double G650 delivery for Flexjet


Flexjet recently took delivery of two Gulfstream G650 ultra-longe range aircraft – one arriving at the company’s Cleveland, OH-headquarteres last week and another on this week.

Both Flexjet Chairman Kenn Ricci and CEO Michael Silvestro were present during the handover ceremony. “The ultra-long range category has continued to grow year over year,” commented Ricci on the first delivery. “With more than 250 Gulfstream G650 aircraft in operation to date, it is an iconic aircraft in this class. To see the Flexjet livery on one of the finest aircraft in business aviation is truly a proud moment for all of us.”
