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 G800 flew from Savannah to Gulfstream Customer Support’s Farnborough, England, facility in support of Gulfstream’s participation in the Farnborough International Airshow.
Announced in October 2021, the G800 is the latest addition to Gulfstream’s next-generation fleet to take flight and make progress toward customer deliveries.
Gulfstream further expands its ultramodern family of aircraft: the G800, the longest-range aircraft in Gulfstream history, and the G400, the first new entrant to the large-cabin class in more than a decade. G800 customer deliveries are anticipated to begin in 2023 and G400 deliveries are anticipated to begin in 2025.
