Gulfstream G700 surpassed 50 city-pair speed records en route to the Singapore Airshow. G700 achieved its 50th speed record on a carbon-neutral flight connecting Los Angeles to Nice, France, traveling 5,197 nautical miles/9,625 kilometers in 10 hours and 13 minutes at an average speed of Mach 0.90. The industry-leading aircraft then set its 51st speed record — also a carbon-neutral flight — from Nice to Singapore, making the 5,754 nm/ 10,656 km trip in just 11 hours and 30 minutes at an average speed of Mach 0.90.  

Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream, commented: “These latest records once again prove that the G700 can help our customers reach their destinations faster. We are excited to return to the Singapore Airshow as we continue to see impressive business growth in the Asia-Pacific region. Demand for Gulfstream’s high- performance capabilities has never been greater, and we look forward to showcasing our next- generation aircraft, which lead the industry in innovation, performance and cabin comfort.” 

The latest record-breaking flights are a fast follow to a city-pair record set by the award-winning G700 on a trip from Tokyo to Savannah in December 2023. The new ultralarge-cabin aircraft made the 6,365- nm/11,788-km journey in 10 hours and 53 minutes at an average speed of Mach 0.91.  The G700 features the most spacious cabin in business aviation and has higher than originally announced performance with a maximum range of 7,750 nm/14,353 km at Mach 0.85 and 6,650 nm/12,316 km at Mach 0.90 as well as a maximum operating speed of Mach 0.935, making it the fastest aircraft in the Gulfstream fleet.
