An interesting thing is starting to happen to our aircraft markets, they are becoming segmented with turn-key great pedigree aircraft rising to the top. Prices are not going up for these better aircraft, but many buyers decide to no longer insist on paying less than the last aircraft sold for, and instead choose to not miss the right aircraft for the wrong reason. There is plenty of inventory in most make/model markets, including in the G550 market with well over 30 aircraft immediately available for sale, but there are only very few aircraft in each make/model market that really stand out based on their vintage, maintenance programs, equipment, compliance, cosmetics and pedigree. The competitive markets dictate prices, but by buying the best today at still incredibly low prices, buyers are putting themselves in the best position for the strongest residual values later. You don’t make your best deal when you sell, you make by buying the greatest value (not necessarily lowest price) possible.
We are proud to exclusively represent Gulfstream G550, Serial Number 5316, N418SG for immediate sale. This 2011 model Gulfstream G550 is turn-key. It is a two owner aircraft that is based in Van Nuys, CA and it is under management and operated both Part 91 and Part 135 by Clay Lacy Aviation. The engines on this G550 are enrolled on Rolls-Royce Corporate Care and the APU is enrolled on MSP. The aircraft is equipped with Enhanced Certification Foxtrot with CPDLC, FANS 1/A, ADS-B Out and TCAS 7.1 making it ready for future compliance requirements. Some of the additional high-demand options installed on this G550 include a third FMS with software version NZ7.1.2 and WAAS-LPV, Runway Awareness and Advisory System (RAAS) and Aircell GoGo Biz ATG-4000 high speed internet with Wi-Fi and SwiftBroadband internationally capable high speed data system among many others. When our client purchased the aircraft from Gulfstream Pre-Owned in August 2013, he had the aircraft re-painted and the interior redone by Gulfstream in Savannah, GA. The 18 passenger, forward galley, forward and aft lavatory interior is gorgeous and it is equipped with a FAR 135 approved crew rest area. This configuration allows up to eight passengers to sleep comfortably on berthed seats made into beds on long flights. If there are only six passengers, six seating sections can be made up as beds while still leaving the conference group set up for those passengers who aren’t ready to lie down.
This is the kind of aircraft that rises to the top of the stack of available competitive aircraft in its make/model fleet. For any potential late model G550 buyer, and those people considering buying new, but whom might be afraid of the future residual value of a brand new aircraft, this is a great opportunity that will sell more than $10,000,000 below the price of a new aircraft.
