The Gulfstream G700 – Business Aviation’s New Flagship – Business Jet Fleet Report YE 2019

Introduced in October 2019, the all-new Gulfstream G700™ powered into business aviation as the industry’s new flagship. The newest aircraft from Gulfstream captures this leadership role with the most spacious cabin, the longest range at the highest speeds and the most advanced technology, all optimized by Gulfstream to deliver an unparalleled travel experience.

The ability to fly at faster speeds gives customers more time, lower annual expenses for maintenance, parts and services, and shorter crew days for safer operations.

The G700 harnesses Gulfstream-developed technology both for pilots and passengers. The aircraft features the award-winning Symmetry Flight Deck™ and other new safety advancements. Along with active-control sidesticks and the industry’s most extensive use of touch-screen technology, the flight deck also comes standard with another Gulfstream award-winner, the Predictive Landing Performance System. This system gives pilots advanced warning of potential runway excursions so they can adjust approaches or go around. All these technologies greatly improve situational awareness and pilot communication, so they stay alert and focused on flying. 

The largest aircraft in the Gulfstream family, the G700 offers an outstanding range of 6,400 nautical miles/11,853 kilometers at its high-speed cruise of Mach 0.90 and 7,500 nm/13,890km at its long-range cruise speed of Mach 0.85. The ability to fly at faster speeds (Mach 0.90 versus Mach 0.80) gives customers more time, lower annual expenses for maintenance, parts and services, and shorter crew days for safer operations.

All-new, high-thrust Rolls-Royce Pearl 700 engines power the G700 and, along with newly designed Gulfstream winglets, ensure the aircraft achieves high performance capabilities with its larger cabin. The aircraft offers excellent takeoff and landing performance and can operate easily at weight-restricted, short-runway and high-altitude airports.

In the cabin, the tallest, widest and longest in the industry, passengers can extend their ground-based lifestyle to the air in up to five living areas. 

The aircraft’s extra-large ultra-galley features a 10-foot/3.048-meter countertop, yet another industry best, and a passenger lounge or crew compartment. Gourmet meals can be catered with ease in the G700 kitchen, and chefs will enjoy the extra-large refrigerator and optimized storage. After holding a productive meeting, passengers can enjoy that gourmet meal at a six-place dining area with fully-deployable table.

The options throughout the cabin are limitless – settle into club seating for intimate conversation or become immersed in the entertainment zone, where the aircraft’s new speakerless system is embedded in the wall panels, giving new meaning to surround sound. 

Those who plan to leverage the ultralong-range capability of the G700 will appreciate the master suite with bath, to get restful sleep. They’ll also have the same amenities they are accustomed to at home, including a shower.

The technology on the G700 also boosts wellness thanks to the most advanced circadian lighting system in aviation. The Gulfstream-developed technology dynamically recreates sunrise and sunset through thousands of white and amber LEDs, gently coaxing passengers into their new time zone and greatly reducing the physical impact of traveling around the world in one stop. Combined with 20 Gulfstream panoramic oval windows, the industry’s lowest cabin altitude, 100 percent fresh air and whisper-quiet sound levels, the G700 lighting and signature Gulfstream Cabin Experience practically give passengers the ability to arrive at their destination feeling more refreshed than when they departed. 

Gulfstream has a long history of combining design excellence with advanced technology, and the G700 propels this history into the future, doing so in the utmost safety and comfort.
