Gulfstream G800 Makes International Debut

Our Bureau - : Jul 16, 2022 - : 4:47 pm

Gulfstream’s all-new ultralong-range G800 is making its international debut at the ongoing Farnborough International Airshow. The aircraft arrived at Farnborough on what was its first international flight.

The G800 flew from Savannah to Gulfstream Customer Support’s Farnborough, England, facility.

“To take the G800 on this trans-Atlantic trip so close to first flight is extraordinary,” said Mark Burns, president of Gulfstream. “Thanks to our strategic planning and the investments Gulfstream has made in our new aircraft programs, we are able to fly the G800 with remarkable efficiency and bring the aircraft directly to customers early in the flight test program, as we have in Farnborough. The Gulfstream Farnborough Service Center is one of our newest and most modern, and it’s fitting that the G800 has made its international debut here.”

The aircraft made its maiden flight on June 28. Shortly thereafter, the Gulfstream flight test team completed a long-duration flight of more than eight hours.

The G800 is the longest-range business aircraft in the industry and can fly 14,816 kilometers at Mach 0.85 and 12,964 km at Mach 0.90.

The aircraft features Gulfstream’s Symmetry Flight Deck with active-control sidesticks and the most extensive use of touch-screen technology in the industry. Its cabin can seat up to 19 passengers with sleeping space for up to 10. It also features the lowest cabin altitude in the industry.

Gulfstream’s Farnborough Service Center opened in the summer of 2020 and has now grown to more than 200 employees and earned 30 foreign regulatory approvals.

The 225,000-square-foot/20,903-square-meter facility accommodates up to 13 of the company’s larger aircraft, including the G650ER, G700, and G800.
