The Gulfstream G650 is a high-performance business jet that can fly using 100% sustainable aviation fuel (SAF). SAF is made from renewable sources, such as plant oils and waste products, and produces significantly lower greenhouse gas emissions than traditional jet fuel. By using SAF, the G650 can reduce its carbon footprint and help the aviation industry become more sustainable. However, it’s important to note that SAF is still not widely available and the use of it is not yet common in the industry.

Gulfstream became the first business jet manufacturer to fly one of its aircraft on 100% sustainable aviation fuel (SAF). The company successfully completed a test flight of a Gulfstream G450 using SAF, which is made from renewable sources such as plant oils and waste products. This test flight demonstrated that SAF can be safely and efficiently used in business jets, and it marked an important step towards making the aviation industry more sustainable. Since then, Gulfstream continues to invest in SAF and other sustainable alternatives to traditional jet fuel to reduce its carbon footprint.
