Gulfstream Aerospace company shook the airline industry a few days ago when it launched a new business jet for 19 passengers, called the G700…
Being the latest model of the brand, it will compete with the Bombardier Global 7500. Introduced during this year’s Business Aviation Association Convention & Exhibiton event in Las Vegas, the new Gulfstream aircraft is powered by brand new high-power Rolls-Royce engines, and it can fly 7,500 nautical miles/13,890 kilometers at Mach 0.85 or 6,400 nm/11,853 km at Mach 0.90.
Otherwise, this is the largest aircraft constructed by the General Dynamics division, with a wingspan of 31.39 meters and the tallest and widest cabin in the industry, which is 17.35 meters long, 1.91 meters high and 2.49 meters wide. The spacious cabin can have up to five separate spaces, with enough seating for up to nineteen passengers, or sleeping space for ten people. The layout also features a dining / conference room with six seating areas as well as a premium master suite with private shower.
On top of all that, the G700 will have a large kitchen with a separate crew compartment that can be converted into a passenger lodge, 20 Gulfstream Panoramic oval windows, as well as a new Kirkaddy lighting system that reduces stress and fatigue due to changing time zone, imitating sunset and sunrise sun during long flights.
As stated earlier, the G700 is powered by two massive Rolls-Royce Pearl 700 engines, which generate a thrust of 8278.0608 pounds. The G700 has a top speed of Mach 0.925 / 1.110 kilometers per hour, with a maximum crossing range of 13,900 kilometers and a maximum altitude of 15,545 meters.
However, we believe that not only passengers will be delighted with this aircraft, as pilots will certainly appreciate the premium Gulfstream Symmetry Flight Deck deck, with active touch controls and numerous security systems such as Predictive Landing Performance, Enhanced Flight Vision and Synthetic Vision technology.
Gulfstream G700 has already gone through 14,000 hours of laboratory testing, with five test planes, and is fully production ready. Future customers will receive their Gulfstream G700 aircraft in 2022.
