Stephen Wynn owner of Wynn Resorts bought the very first twin-engined Gulfstream G650, the World´s number 1 private business jet
This jet was purchased in Oregon (Nike also has snapped up one of the new planes) and is the company’s largest jet, ever, with an 18-passenger capacity and a full kitchen and a bar onboard.
Billionaire Stephen Wynn has been a loyal Gulfstream customer for years, in part because he enjoys comfort and likes to travel fast. This craft cuts through the skies at nearly the speed of sound and is fairly economical, too, getting 7,000 miles from a single tank of gas (that’s a flight from New York to Tokyo). The G650 is being used even now to fly guests to Las Vegas from Asia for New Year’s Eve. The new jet might be the one to replace the 11-seat Challenger aircraft Wynn gave to Garth Brooks so that Brooks and Trisha Yearwood could fly back and forth to Las Vegas for Brooks’ run at Encore Theater.
The Wynn jet is exceedingly rare, just the seventh G650 to come off the assembly line. Its base ticket price is $65 million, the Wynn Resorts is the first company in the world to own this particular aircraft. So these are high times, indeed, for Mr. Wynn, who turns 71 in January 2013.
The next available G650 won’t be delivered until 2017 — and there’s no way to jump the line, Gulfstream says.
“You are not allowed to sell your position,” communications head Steve Cass said in an interview at the Paris Air Show.
Customers sign a contract that includes a non-assignability clause, he explained. Of course, you are allowed to sell the G650 once you take delivery, but “if we get any indication that you sold, or were conspiring to sell the aircraft beforehand, we will take remedy to that,” Cass said. “We do not want speculators in the marketplace.”
Obviously, a $65 million jet draws some very wealthy and high-profile customers. But “everyone’s treated exactly the same,” Cass noted.
The G650 has become a hot topic among wealthy jetsetters, but Cass argued that the plane is actually “not a status symbol” for celebrities, noting that the vast majority of its 200 plus orders are from corporations.
May 2013, Sir Peter Jackson has bought a new $80 million jet.
His holding company ZKKFB took possession of a Gulfstream GVI G650 in March, according to financing statements filed with the Companies Office.
Jackson is in good company – chatshow host Oprah Winfrey and investor Warren Buffett are also said to be lining up to buy the same type of aircraft.
Current owners include “Lord of the Rings” director Sir Peter Jackson,Wynn, Walmart, and Exxon Mobil.Swap Shop founder Preston Henn.
Nike has registered the aircraft with the FAA under the personalised serial number N1KE, which previously was used to identify the company’s Gulfstream GV business jet.
In September, billionaire Bernie Ecclestone, CEO of Formula 1 auto racing, sold his G650 to a Japanese businessman for $72 million.
Nassef Sawiris and his father, Onsi Sawiris both own a Gulfstream G650 they are registered in the Isle of Man.
The most recent G650 to be delivered (msn 6047 / M-KSSN), left the Gulfstream factory in Savannah, Georgia on 21 November 2013, with the Isle of Man register showing that this is registered to NS Aviation Limited in Bermuda.

The aircraft (msn 6037 / M-USIK) left Savannah on 18 November, with the recent Isle of Man register update showing that this is registered to OS Aviation Limited in Bermuda. The aircraft is operated by YYA Management who is known to have previously operated aircraft on behalf of the Orascom Group of companies.

Although Osni has now effectively retired from the company, he is still involved with the larger group decisions. His initials form the OS in OS Aviation, who own G650 M-USIK.
