Gulfstream Aerospace on September 8 announced the all-new G700 and G800 Rolls-Royce Pearl 700 engines have earned Federal Aviation Administration certification, bringing the aircraft program another step closer toward entry into service.

“The G700 and G800 are introducing new standards for efficiency and performance in the business aviation industry thanks to the combination of Gulfstream aerodynamics and the Pearl 700’s efficiencies,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream.

Gulfstream also notes how the G700 and G800 feature a high-speed, aerodynamic wing design, as well as an all-new winglet designed for the two new aircraft to help reduce fuel consumption and emissions.

The aircraft maker states the G700 features the most spacious cabin in the industry and can fly 6,650 nautical miles (12,316 kilometres) at Mach 0.90 or 7,750 nm (14,353 km) at Mach 0.85; and its maximum operating speed of Mach 0.935 makes it the fastest aircraft in the Gulfstream fleet. The G800 can travel 7,000 nm (12,964) km at Mach 0.90 and 8,000 nm (14,816 km) at Mach 0.85, described by Gulfstream as the longest range in the business aviation industry.


The G700 and G800 both include the Gulfstream Symmetry Flight Deck with electronically linked active control sidesticks and the extensive use of touch-screen technology, as well as Gulfstream’s Predictive Landing Performance System. The G700 and G800 also feature the Gulfstream Cabin Experience with, explains the company, 100 per cent fresh air and the industry’s lowest cabin altitude and a large source of natural light from Gulfstream Panoramic Oval Windows.
