Gulfstream’s G800 test aircraft N800G / 88001 has arrived at Farnborough Airport, where it will be on static display during the Farnborough Air Show.
The Farnborough Air Show is held every two years in Farnborough, UK. It is one of the biggest global air shows, although it is more commonly associated with commercial and defense aircraft.
The flight to Farnborough was the first international flight for the G800, having flown for the first time on June 28, 2022.
“To take the G800 on this trans-Atlantic trip so close to first flight is extraordinary,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream. “Thanks to our strategic planning and the investments Gulfstream has made in our new aircraft programs, we are able to fly the G800 with remarkable efficiency and bring the aircraft directly to customers early in the flight test program, as we have in Farnborough. The Gulfstream Farnborough Service Center is one of our newest and most modern, and it’s fitting that the G800 has made its international debut here.”
The G800 was unveiled by Gulfstream at the airframers Savannah-homebase on October 2021 alongside its smaller stablemate the G400.
Based on the best-selling G650 family, the G800 flies for up 8,000 nautical miles/14,816 kilometers at Mach 0.85 and 7,000 nm/12,964 km at Mach 0.90. It is scheduled to enter into service in 2025.
The Farnborough Air Show takes place between July 18th – July 22nd.
