Gulfstream receives EASA certification for G700 and G800 jet engines
The Rolls-Royce Pearl 700 engines will power the flagship Gulfstream G700 and ultralong-range Gulfstream G800 aircraft.
Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. has been awarded approval in the form of certification from the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) for the latest Rolls-Royce Pearl 700 engines. The Rolls-Royce Pearl 700 engines will power the flagship Gulfstream G700 and ultralong-range Gulfstream G800 aircraft.
The G700 jet features a spacious cabin and can fly at its high-speed cruise of Mach 0.90 for 6,400 nautical miles/11,853 kilometers and for its long-range cruise the jet can fly at a speed of Mach 0.85 for 7,500 nm/13,890 km. The G800 boasts a 7,000-nm/12,964-km range at Mach 0.90 and an 8,000-nm/14,816-km range at Mach 0.85, the longest range in the business aviation industry.
“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 ultralong-range distance segment with their unique combination of range, speed and cabin size,” he further added.
The G700 and G800 along with the Rolls-Royce Pearl 700 engines feature the high-speed, aerodynamic Gulfstream wing design that was introduced on the Gulfstream G650 and G650ER aircraft. The two new aircraft will also feature a newly designed winglet. Combined these innovations will help to reduce fuel consumption and emissions for the jets.
“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 Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream. “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.”
The G700 and G800 aircraft feature the Gulfstream Symmetry Flight Deck with the industry’s only electronically linked active control sidesticks. It is called by Gulfstream the most extensive use of touch-screen technology in business aviation and Gulfstream’s award-winning Predictive Landing Performance System.
