  1. Gulfstream Finishes World's First Trans-Atlantic Flight On 100% SAF
    The world's first Trans-Atlantic flight on 100% Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) has been completed by Gulfstream utilizing one of their G600 aircraft. Data Collected During This Mission Will Advance Industry Toward Net-Zero Goals. The aircraft in question departed the company’s headquarters in Savannah and landed 6 hours, 56 minutes later at Farnborough Airport in England.
  2. "Gulfstream is innovating for a sustainable future," said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream. "One of the keys to reaching business aviation’s long-term decarbonization goals is the broad use of SAF in place of fossil-based jet fuel. The completion of this world-class flight helps to advance business aviation’s overarching sustainability mission and create positive environmental impacts for future generations." The G600 was powered by twin Pratt & Whitney PW815GA engines, both using 100% SAF, this mission showcases the potential for aviation’s future use of renewable fuels, which feature lower carbon, sulfur and aromatics.
  3. The SAF used on the flight was produced by World Energy and delivered by World Fuel Services. It was comprised of 100% Hydroprocessed Esters and Fatty Acids (neat HEFA), which has at least 70% lower lifecycle CO2 emissions than fossil-based jet fuel, helping to reduce aviation’s impact on climate. Additionally, this zero added aromatics fuel has a reduced impact on local air quality and very low sulfur content, which can reduce non-CO2 environmental impacts. Other key partners supporting this milestone include Honeywell, Safran and Eaton.
