Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. today marks 100 days since the all-new Gulfstream G700 received Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) type certification on March 29 and subsequently entered into service. Additional certifications, steadily increasing flight hours and deliveries around the world along with continued city-pair speed records demonstrate unparalleled program maturity for the G700.

To date, the G700 has also earned European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) type certification along with type certificate validations from eight nations, including Mexico, and the growing fleet has exceeded 700 flight hours.

"We planned for a seamless entry into service for the G700, and this incredible start is a testament to both the maturity of the program and the dedication of the Gulfstream team," said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream. "Thanks to the investments we made across our business, from research and development to manufacturing and completions, the G700 program is exceeding customer expectations – they are flying their aircraft around the world immediately upon delivery, and the feedback we are hearing is outstanding."

The G700 also recently achieved new city-pair speed records, linking Paris to Montreal in 6 hours and 16 minutes and São Paulo to White Plains, New York, in 8 hours and 46 minutes, both at an average speed of Mach 0.90 or greater. The flights are pending approval by the U.S. National Aeronautic Association and Fédération Aéronautique Internationale in Switzerland for official recognition as world records. In total, the aircraft has earned nearly 60 speed records.

During the development and testing of the G700, Gulfstream Customer Support service teams were embedded throughout the program to ensure operational readiness upon certification. These teams are also facilitating seamless transitions as G700 customer deliveries increase.
