With the rise of the jet industry across the globe, aircraft manufacturing companies are giving all their best effort to satisfy passengers’ need for speed by offering the latest models with innovative facilities and powerful engines. One of the world’s leading aircraft manufacturing companies, Gulfstream Aerospace, is one step ahead of the competition by debuting an aircraft that sets the new standard of business aircraft: the Gulfstream G700. Besides being acknowledged as the world’s largest business jet ever built, the G700 also broke and set speed records on its inaugural flight between three cities.

Powered with the brand-new Rolls-Royce Pearl 700 engine, the aircraft first broke its speed record by connecting Savannah to Doha, Qatar, at a distance of 12,428km only in 13 hours and 16 minutes at an average speed of Mach 0.88. The jet also set another jaw-dropping record by flying from Doha to Paris, covering the 5,469km distance in 6 hours and 15 minutes at an average speed of Mach 0.90. Flaunting top speed and groundbreaking jet engines, it is no wonder why the G700 successfully gained the title as one of the fastest business jets today. Besides showcasing record- breaking speed and generous cabin space, Gulfstream’s G700 also pays attention to its carbon footprint.

Showing its commitment to a greener earth, Gulfstream implemented carbon offsetting mechanisms during the city-pair flights. Moreover, it fueled its innovative jet with a mixture of sustainable aviation fuel to fly between Savannah and Doha. “These were the first international flights for the G700, and it performed exceptionally well, setting two new records in the process,” said Gulfstream President Mark Burns. “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.” For more information, visit www.gulfstream.com.
