Gulfstream G700

Gulfstream Aerospace Corp., a wholly owned subsidiary of General Dynamics, today announced the all-new Gulfstream G700 has received European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) type certification, following the aircraft’s Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) type certification on March 29.

Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream said: “The Gulfstream team is proud to add EASA to our growing G700 certification accomplishments.

“During the flight test program, we took the G700 across the globe, and the response to the aircraft’s cabin size, flexibility and performance has been outstanding.

“This EASA certification unlocks G700 deliveries for many more of our international customers, and we are excited to see our next-generation fleet grow around the world.”

Before FAA certification, Gulfstream announced G700 performance enhancements for range, speed and cabin altitude.

The aircraft’s range increased to 7,750 nautical miles/14,353 kilometers at Mach 0.85 or 6,650 nm/12,316 km at Mach 0.90, gaining 250 nm/463 km at both speeds over original projections.

The G700’s maximum operating speed increased from Mach 0.925 to Mach 0.935, making the it the fastest in the Gulfstream fleet.

In addition, the G700’s FAA certification confirmed two additional performance improvements, giving customers even more operational flexibility and airport availability: a balanced field length takeoff distance of 5,995 ft/1,829 m and a landing distance of 3,150 ft/960 m (standard ISA day, sea level), both shorter than originally announced.

“We appreciate the support and partnership of the EASA G700 certification team in reaching this achievement,” said Burns.
