Gulfstream G800 flight test article displayed at EBACE


The new Gulfstream G800 made its Continental debut this week. The first G800 flight test article flew into EBACE 2023 – from Savannah, Georgia, to Geneva, Switzerland – on a blend of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) from the company’s dedicated supply. To date, all G800 test flights originating from Gulfstream’s Savannah headquarters have flown on a SAF blend.

“By flying the G800 test aircraft to EBACE 2023 this year, we are demonstrating the maturity of this programme,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream. “The G800 presents a compelling combination of high-speed aerodynamics and fuel-efficient engines to decrease emissions and save flying time for our customers. Equipped with our latest advancements in technology and innovation, the G800 adds the industry’s longest range to our aircraft portfolio. We are pleased to display a Gulfstream for every mission in Geneva.”

Powered by high-thrust Rolls-Royce Pearl 700 engines and the Gulfstream-designed wing and winglet, the G800 can fly 8,000 nautical miles (14,816km) at Mach 0.85 and 7,000 nautical miles (12,964km) at Mach 0.90. The G800 also features the Gulfstream Symmetry Flight Deck with active control sidesticks and extensive use of touchscreen technology.

The G800 cabin can be configured with up to four living areas, providing seating for up to 19 passengers and sleeping space for up to 10. Other features include 100% fresh, never recirculated air; and a plasma ionisation purification system.

The G800 was displayed at EBACE 2023 alongside the Gulfstream G280, the Gulfstream G500, the Gulfstream G600, the Gulfstream G650ER and the Gulfstream G700.
