  1. First International Speed Records For Gulfstream G700
    The Gulftsream G700, the company's newest flagship has not even entered service and has set not one but two speed records. One of the testbed aircraft, with a fully outfitted production interior flew from Savannah to Doha, Qatar where it was on show for Gulfstream customer Qatar Executive. That trip spanned a considerable distance of 6,711 nautical miles or 12,428 kilometers, at an average speed of Mach 0.88 in 13 hours and 16 minutes. On this leg, the G700 was fueled on Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) as well, helping to lower its carbon footprint enroute.
  2. "These were the first international flights for the G700, and it performed exceptionally well, setting two new records in the process," said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream. "We are excited to introduce the G700 in person to customers in the Middle East and Europe and are proud that we can do so while also demonstrating our commitment to sustainability at the same time. Not only did the aircraft prove its speed and distance capabilities, the fully outfitted cabin is also receiving rave reviews with its impressive cabin size, environment, quality and flexibility." The second city pair speed record was set between Doha, Qatar and Paris, France where it flew the 2,953 nautical miles or 5,469 kilometers in 6 hours and 15 minutes at an average speed of Mach 0.90.
