FAA certification for Gulfstream G700 and G800 engines


The new Gulfstream G700 and Gulfstream G800 Rolls-Royce Pearl 700 engines have earned FAA certification, bringing the aircraft another step closer towards entry into service and customer deliveries.

The G700 can fly 6,650 nautical miles (12,316km) at Mach 0.90 or 7,750 nautical miles (14,353km) 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 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 touchscreen technology; and Gulfstream’s award-winning Predictive Landing Performance System. The aircraft also feature an all-new winglet designed for them.

In the cabin, the G700 and G800 feature 100% fresh air; abundant natural light from the Gulfstream panoramic oval windows; low cabin altitude; and quiet noise levels.

“We are excited about this latest advancement towards G700 and G800 certification,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream. “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 ultra-long-range capabilities the G700 and G800 will provide our customers.”
