The new Rolls-Royce Pearl 700 engines for the Gulfstream G700 and G800 have achieved EASA certification.
“The certification of the Rolls-Royce Pearl 700 engines for the G700 and G800 is a significant step that brings us closer to delivering these game-changing aircraft to our customers,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream. “We are seeing a high level of demand for both the G700 and G800, and they are set to lead the upper end of the ultra-long-range distance segment with their unique combination of range, speed and cabin size.”
The G700 can fly at its high-speed cruise of Mach 0.90 for 6,400 nautical miles (11,853km) or at its long-range cruise of Mach 0.85 for 7,500 nautical miles (13,890km). The G800 has a range of 7,000 nautical miles (12,964km) at Mach 0.90 and 8,000 nautical miles (14,816km) at Mach 0.85.
The G700 and G800 both include the Gulfstream Symmetry Flight Deck with electronically linked active control sidesticks, extensive use of touchscreen technology and Gulfstream’s award-winning Predictive Landing Performance System.
“The G700 and G800 can deliver their impressive performance capabilities thanks to the Rolls-Royce Pearl 700 engines and the advanced Gulfstream wing and winglet on the two aircraft,” said Burns. “With these powerful advancements, Gulfstream customers can reap the benefits of large cabins with enhanced comfort over the worldwide flights the G700 and G800 can accomplish.”
Along with the Rolls-Royce Pearl 700 engines, the G700 and G800 feature the high-speed, aerodynamic Gulfstream wing design introduced on the Gulfstream G650 and G650ER, as well as an all-new winglet designed for the two new aircraft.
The G700 and G800 cabins feature 100% fresh, never recirculated air purified by a plasma ionisation clean air system, and are designed to offer low cabin altitude and whisper-quiet noise levels. Another feature is the Gulfstream panoramic oval windows, along with the all-new ultra-HD circadian lighting system introduced on the G700.
