  1. Gulfstream G700; G600 Set New City-Pair Records
    Towards the end of October, Gulfstream was able to attain even more prestige with their next generation aircraft. New city-pairs have been made utilizing the G600 and the all-new G700 -which has not entered service yet-. The G700, the one involved in the record was full-outfitted with a finished interior performing flawlessly between the city-pair of Houston, Texas, to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia flying 7,172 nautical miles/13,283 kilometers, its longest-distance flight to date. That flight was flown at an average of MACH 0.87 and achieved the distance in 13 hours and 40 minutes. These flights were also flown with Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF).
  2. The G600 on the other hand departed Washington, D.C., and flew 6,146 nm/11,382 km to Riyadh at Mach 0.88 for a total flight time of 11 hours and 39 minutes, adding another city-pair record. "Gulfstream’s next-generation aircraft truly raise the bar for high performance, innovation and cabin comfort. These city-pair records showcase the ability of our aircraft to help our customers reach their destinations faster," said Mark Burns, President, Gulfstream. "The G700 is the most spacious, best-performing aircraft in the business-jet industry, and we look forward to its entry into service, and for the G600, our customers are seeing firsthand what the aircraft can do for them, and its popularity continues to grow around the world."
  3. Both aircraft also set city-pair records on their way back to the United States as well. The G700 connected Riyadh with Savannah in a record 13 hours and 55 minutes, flying 6,507 nm/12,051 km at an average speed of Mach 0.875 while operating as high as 51,000 feet at Mach 0.89. The G600 illustrated its capabilities by connecting Riyadh with Teterboro Airport in New Jersey and set another record, flying 5,915 nm/10,955 km in 12 hours and 56 minutes at an average speed of Mach 0.85.
