FAA certificates Gulfstream G700


The Gulfstream G700 received Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) type certification today.

Gulfstream has also said that the aircraft also has a shorter take-off and landing than originally promised.

“We have successfully completed the most rigorous certification program in company history with the G700,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream. “I’d like to thank our world-class team of flight test, certification and engineering professionals, along with the many others at Gulfstream who have contributed to this accomplishment.”

The aircraft now has a balanced field length takeoff distance of 5,995 feet/1,827 meters and a landing distance of 3,150 ft/960 m at sea-level. Gulfstream had already announced improved range, speed and cabin altitude in September 2023.

“I would also like to extend my thanks to the FAA G700 certification team for their support,” said Burns. “On behalf of Gulfstream’s more than 20,000 employees worldwide, I am proud and excited to begin our G700 customer deliveries.”

In July 2023 Gulfstream had hoped to deliver 19 G700s before the end of the year. It is now targeting 50 deliveries for 2024.
