The G650 cabin mechanisms from Enflite include electrically operated pocket doors, monitor lifts, console tables, and manually operated pedestal tables.

Enflite Inc. signed an agreement to provide customized interior cabin mechanisms and galley appliances for Gulfstream Aerospace Corp.'s G650 aircraft cabin. The G650 cabin mechanisms include electrically operated pocket doors, monitor lifts, console tables, and manually operated pedestal tables. Enflite's electric console table, claimed to be the only one of its kind in an OEM aircraft, is offered as a turnkey product including the table mechanism, table top, and carbon-fiber shroud. The table top can be stowed and deployed with the push of a button. The "Stackable Galley" consists of a zero clearance, even flow convection oven and microwave. Both appliances offer a fully graphical LCD display with capacitive switch control buttons. It was also recently announced that Aircell’s Axxess communications system has been selected by Gulfstream as standard equipment aboard the G650. Axxess is a cabin communications system that provides global voice service and narrowband data capabilities via the Iridium Satellite network. Video of the cabin can be viewed via this link.
