Gulfstream has announced an improvement to the G700’s cabin altitude. When flying at 41,000ft (12,497m), the cabin altitude will now be 2,916ft (889m) rather than 3,290ft (1,003m), as originally stated.
“Our focus on the customer experience is embedded in our commitment to continuous improvement,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream. “This new, industry-leading cabin altitude is a result of our ongoing investments in customer health and safety and will provide even more comfort for passengers over the ultra-long-range flights the G700 is capable of achieving.”
In addition to the low cabin altitude, the cabin experience on the in-development G700 includes 100% fresh, never recycled air; “whisper-quiet” noise levels; 20 large windows; a new HD circadian lighting system; and an award-winning seat design with a variety of comfort options.
The G700 cabin first took flight on 15 April 2021, in the first fully outfitted production test aircraft. Gulfstream is taking the G700 interior through more than 15,500 test points to ensure the cabin’s comfort, maturity and durability upon its entry into service, which is anticipated for 2022.
Gulfstream’s first purpose-built business aircraft, the Gulfstream I, made its maiden flight in 1958. Today, more than 2,900 aircraft are in service around the world. Together with parent company General Dynamics, Gulfstream consistently invests in the future, dedicating resources to researching and developing new aircraft, technologies and services.
The company’s product range includes the super-midsize G280, the award-winning G650, the G650ER and an all-new aircraft family, the clean-sheet G500, G600 and G700.
