The G550 is based on the proven design of the GV.  Compared to the GV, the G550 has approximately 300 miles additional ranges and an upgraded PlaneDeck avionics package.  The G550 cabin seats up to 18 passengers in three or four living areas. The most popular configuration will have seating for 14 passengers and will include a 4-place club arrangement, usually in the forward section, a 2-place club and divan in the mid-cabin and 4-place conference seating in the aft section. This configuration will berth 6 people.  The G550 commonly includes a forward crew rest area to permit use of an “augmented” crew to manage long-range flights.  The G550 fleet is over 400 aircraft with corporate operators including Coca-Cola, 3M, and Hewlett Packard.
