Mahogany Wooden Model
Airplane Collection models are collection pieces for the following technical reasons. Firstly, the models are limited editions and hand-crafted. Secondly, the replica is an accurate scaled-down model of the original aircraft. All specifications of the airplane’s design are religiously respected for accuracy. Thirdly, the wood is carefully chosen for its natural beauty, color and grain in function to the type of aircraft model. A predetermined time is taken to dry and conserve the wood before the hand-crafting by our artists.
In the final phase, the model receives a unique pellicle coating devised by the technical advisors of the Aircraft Collection which enhances, once again, the natural beauty of the wood and provides a durable protection for years to come.
The Gulfstream G650 is a large business jet produced by Gulfstream Aerospace. The model is designated Gulfstream GVI in its type certificate, and may be configured to carry from 11 to 18 passengers. Gulfstream began the G650 program in 2005 and revealed it to the public in 2008. The G650 was formerly the company’s largest and fastest business jet with a top speed of Mach 0.925, having been surpassed by the larger G700.
The aircraft project was named the 2014 winner of the Collier Trophy, for having “strengthened business aviation through significant technological advancements in aircraft performance, cabin comfort, and safety.” The G650ER is an extended-range version of the G650 adding about 500 nautical miles of range. The 300th was delivered in April 2018, just over five years since introduction in December 2012. The 400th was delivered in December 2019, seven years after the type’s introduction.
