General Dynamics’ Gulfstream G700 has successfully completed its maiden flight, in which it departed Savannah-Hilton Head International Airport at 1:19 p.m. EST on Feb. 14, 2020 and landed approximately 2-hours, 32-minutes later, running on a blend of sustainable aviation fuel. This luxurious business jet features the longest, widest as well as tallest cabin in the industry, complete with 20 Gulfstream panoramic oval windows and up to five living areas.
This aircraft also boasts an ultra-galley with over 10-feet of counter space, a crew compartment or passenger lounge, the industry’s only ultra-high-definition circadian lighting system, speakerless surround sound, and even a master suite with shower. Power comes from Rolls-Royce Pearl 700 engines that enables it to hit a high-speed cruise of Mach 0.90 for 6,400 nautical miles or at its long-range cruise of Mach 0.85 for 7,500 nautical miles.

As the market leader, Gulfstream is moving the entire business-jet industry forward with advanced safety features, tomorrow’s technology and a cabin purposefully designed to exceed our customers’ expectations for comfort,” said Gulfstream president Mark Burns.
