FAA grants certification to Gulfstream G700 business jet

The long-range aircraft was launched in 2019 and was expected to enter service in 2022. The jet can carry up to 19 passengers over distances of 7,750 nautical miles

General Dynamics, the company that controls Gulfstream, announced on March 29 that it had achieved type certification by the FAA for the G700, a long-range business jet.

The new corporate plane has the largest passenger capacity from the manufacturer and was launched in 2019.

According to the company, the G700 confirmed two improvements in its performance, a takeoff distance of 5,995 feet/1,827 meters and a landing distance of 3,150 ft/960 m at sea level.

“We have successfully completed the most rigorous certification program in company history with the G700,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream.

The G700’s type certification occurred after some delay and amid an increase in the rigor of the Federal Aviation Administration’s work due to problems revealed in the 737 MAX approval process.

Gulfstream expected to deliver the first G700s in 2022, but the FAA ended up extending the testing and evaluation period.

G800 is next to be certified

The G700 is capable of carrying up to 19 passengers over distances of 7,750 nautical miles/14,353 kilometers at a speed of Mach 0.85. The aircraft can fly faster, at Mach 0.90 and over a slightly shorter distance of 6,650 nm/12,316 km.

The maximum speed of the aircraft equipped with Rolls-Royce Pearl 700 engines is Mach 0.935. The G700’s cabin altitude is the lowest in business aviation, Gulfstream said, at 2,840 ft/866 m while flying at 41,000 ft/12,497 m.

The company has not yet revealed when it will make the first delivery of the new jet. In addition to the G700, Gulfstream is also in the process of certifying the G800, a slightly smaller model that offers a range of 8,000 nm.
