7 Indian Billionaires Who Love To Fly High
2. Lakshmi Mittal
Aircraft: Gulfstream G550
Price: $38 million
Lakshmi Mittal might not have a Rolls-Royce for the streets. But when he flies, he flies in a Gulfstream G550 which is powered by twin Rolls-Royce BR710 engines. In a ‘plane’ note, the Gulfstream G550 is considered to be the Rolls-Royce of private jets.
Mittal’s G550 is among the handful examples of the perfect mixture of luxury and military grades. Luxury is not at all a matter in this gulfstream and the leading-edge technologies make it an accomplished desire for any pilot.
Including two crew members, Mittal’s luxury bird have space for eight passengers. It can fly at a top speed of 675 miles per hour and can soar up to an altitude of 51,000 feet. Its military style head-up display allows the pilot to take off their eyes away from the control panel. The ‘Enhanced Vision System’ (EVS) allows it to land on low visibility conditions and it is aerodynamically friendly.
Mittal uses this luxury bird to step into 3 countries in a day. This Gulfstream is one of the costliest air rides in the world.
