The Pearl® 700 is the exclusive engine for the brand-new ultra-long-range flagship jets from Gulfstream, The G700 and G800. Combining the Advance2 efficient engine core, with a brand-new low-pressure system, the Pearl 700 delivers an eight percent increase in take-off thrust (at 18,250 lbf) compared to the G650 BR725 engine.
In 2012 with the entry into service of the Gulfstream G650 (Model GVI), a new era of Ultra-Long-Range (> 7000 nm) purpose-built Business Jets was launched. Although highly impacted by continuous delays and cost overruns with its CSeries commercial aircraft family, Bombardier had to respond with the launch of the Global 7000 and 8000 family program that soon converged with the delivery of the current industry flagship, the Global 7500. The Ultra-Long-Range offerings will soon be extended with the addition of the state-of-the-art Gulfstream G700 and G800 and a clean sheet design from Dassault Aviation, the extra widebody Falcon 10X. Let’s look at what’s today the most advanced and dynamic segment of Business Aviation!
The aircraft joins the first outfitted G700, which has already set eight international city-pair speed records and was awarded the 2022 International Yacht & Aviation Award in the Private Jet Design category.
The first fully outfitted G700 garnered the win in the Private Jet Design (Exterior and Interior) category. The all-new seat design on the G700 earned an International Yacht & Aviation Award in 2020.
The G700 is proving strong maturity through a multitude of test points as it heads toward customer deliveries later this year.
The G700 linked Savannah, Georgia, to Geneva in 7 hours and 37 minutes at an average speed of Mach 0.90.
The G700 is equipped with the Rolls-Royce Pearl 700 engine, able to operate on sustainable aviation fuel. The G700 is an industry benchmark for sustainability and innovation, allowing the airline to operate one of the cleanest and quietest business jets.
The fully outfitted aircraft took off today and flew 3 hours and 36 minutes, reaching an altitude of 48,000 feet/14,630 meters and a top speed of Mach 0.935. The test regimen will encompass more than 15,500 test points, validating every facet of the cabin comfort and reliability.
