G450 / G550 / G650

According to EASA/FAA, the GV is a commun type rating for the G350 / G450 /G500 / G550. Is there some sort of CCQ to get from one type rating to another, for instance from G550 to G650 ? Or is it a full course again? (with a huge cost involved…)

So two questions remain: Is this abbreviated initial course actually any cheaper? (If I was the training provider, I would still charge the same amount.) Who offers this abbreviated initial course? Both CAE and FSI seem to offer only one type of initial—and that's the long one.

They are all the same type rating but require differences training. You need to follow the Gulfstream Operational Suitability Document (OSD) requirements for differences training, this is what the type rating courses are written against. The OSD are not available from the internet, you have to get them from the Original Equipment Manufacturer and they only give them to owners or training providers. If you have an aircraft you can get a copy or FSI CAE might give you a copy.
