Rolls-Royce and Gulfstream Demonstrate 100% SAF Flight Operations

The first test flight of an ultralong-range business jet powered by 100% Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) was achieved using a Rolls-Royce BR725-powered Gulfstream G650 twin-jet over Gulfstream’s headquarters in Savannah, Georgia. At present, SAF is only certified for blends of up to 50% with conventional jet fuel and can be used on all current Rolls-Royce engines.

Rolls-Royce receives EASA certification for the Pearl 700 engine

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.
