CONQUEROR OF THE AIR
The G700 has a high-standard cabin that offers 100 percent fresh air.
Rolls-Royce, the very best luxury automobile maker in the world, recently set foot in engine manufacturing for business aviation, while continuing to make top class limousines. In joining hands with Gulfstream Aerospace, two Rolls-Royce Pearl 700 engines have powered the new Gulfstream G700 and completed its first flight in two hours and 32 minutes this February.
“The Gulfstream G700 takes the very best elements from our most innovative products and unites them with cutting-edge advances to create an all-new, advanced-technology aircraft that redefines safety, comfort and range at speed. This announcement is the biggest news in business aviation history,” said Gulfstream CEO Mark Burns.

The Gulfstream G700 is the largest aircraft ever built by the General Dynamics subsidiary with its wingspan of 31.39 m. It can fly at its high-speed cruise of 1,074 km/h for 11,853 km or at its long-range cruise of 1,015 km/h for 13,890 km, which boasts the longest range at the fastest speeds in the industry.
The two Rolls-Royce Pearl 700 engines that powered the G700 generated 18,250 lb of thrust with its 131.6cm bladed disk fan that combines the company’s Advance2 engine core with a brand-new low-pressure system for greater efficiency.
In addition to electronically linked active control sidesticks and the most extensive use of touchscreen technology in business aviation, the Flight Deck is also equipped with Gulfstream’s Predictive Landing Performance System that gives pilots advanced warning of potential runway excursions so that they can adjust approaches or go around.
Boasting the tallest, widest and longest cabin in the industry, the all-new cabin on the G700 has up to five living areas, offering an extra-large ultragalley with a passenger lounge or crew compartment; a six-place dining or conference room; and a master suite with shower. Equipped with twenty panoramic oval windows, it allows passengers to enjoy the best flight experience.
Mark Burns also pointed out that while the G700 meets customer needs, it also offers unlimited possibilities. “Gulfstream has a long tradition of listening to our customers, and the G700 cabin is the evolution of that collaboration,” said Burns. “Customers shared how much they value flexibility and comfort in the cabin, all without compromising the speed and range advantages they have come to expect from Gulfstream.”
The G700 also offers a range of cabin amenities that revolutionise the benefits of businessjet travel, including the most advanced circadian lighting system in aviation. The Gulfstream cabin recreates sunrise and sunset through thousands of white and amber LEDs, gently coaxing passengers into their new time zone and greatly reducing the physical impact of travelling halfway around the world.
