It is powered by twin General Electric CF34-3B1 turbofan engines, enabling it to achieve a cruise speed of 509 mph (719 kph) and a high-speed cruise of 528 mph (850 kph).

Additional Aircraft: It’s worth noting that Jay-Z also has access to another private jet, a Gulfstream V ultra-long-range jet. This jet was a perk he received as part of his deal as the creative director of Puma Basketball.
