Gulfstream Aerospace has announced the all-new Gulfstream G700 and Gulfstream G800 Rolls-Royce Pearl 700 engines have earned Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certification, bringing the aircraft program another step closer towards entry into service and customer deliveries.
Mark Burns, President of Gulfstream, spoke on the news of the recent engine certification, saying: “We are excited about this latest advancement towards G700 and G800 certification.”
“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.”
“We are seeing great demand for the technology, cabin comfort, and ultralong-range capabilities the G700 and G800 will provide our customers.”
Innovative Design for Efficiency
The G700 and G800 boast a high-speed, aerodynamic Gulfstream wing design, complemented by an all-new winglet tailored specifically for these remarkable aircraft.
In conjunction with the Rolls-Royce Pearl 700 engines, these innovations collectively contribute to significant reductions in fuel consumption and emissions.
G700: Spacious and Swift
The G700 features the most spacious cabin in the industry, offering an unrivaled level of comfort and luxury for passengers.
It has the capability to cover impressive distances, with the ability to fly 6,650 nautical miles (12,316 kilometers) at Mach 0.90 or an astonishing 7,750 nautical miles (14,353 kilometers) at Mach 0.85. With a maximum operating speed of Mach 0.935, it stands as the fastest aircraft within the Gulfstream fleet.
G800: Setting New Milestones
The G800 is no less impressive, with the capacity to travel 7,000 nautical miles (12,964 kilometers) at Mach 0.90 and an even greater 8,000 nautical miles (14,816 kilometers) at the reduced speed of Mach 0.85.
The G700 and G800 both include the Gulfstream Symmetry Flight Deck with the industry’s only electronically linked active control sidesticks, the most extensive use of touch-screen technology in business aviation and Gulfstream’s award-winning predictive landing performance system.
Rolls-Royce Pearl 700 Engine
Designed specifically for the Gulfstream G700 and G800, this engine combines the most efficient engine core available across the business aviation sector with a brand-new low-pressure system, resulting in an 8% increase in take-off thrust at 18,250lb compared to the BR725 engine.
The engine offers a 12% better thrust-to-weight ratio and 5% higher efficiency, while maintaining its class-leading low noise and emissions performance. All this while propelling customers nearly as fast as the speed of sound.
