Gulfstream G800 has made its Continental debut, arriving in Geneva for EBACE 2023. The first G800 flight test article, flew from Savannah to Geneva on a blend of sustainable aviation fuel from Gulfstream’ dedicated supply. To date, all G800 test flights originating from Gulfstream’s Savannah headquarters have flown on an SAF blend. Powered by high-thrust Rolls-Royce Pearl 700 engines and the Gulfstream-designed wing and winglet, the G800 features enhanced fuel-efficiency and can fly 8,000 nautical miles/14,816 kilometers at Mach 0.85 and 7,000 nm/12,964 km at Mach 0.90. The G800 also features the Gulfstream Symmetry Flight Deck with active control sidesticks and the most extensive use of touch-screen technology in the industry.

Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream, commented: “By flying the G800 test aircraft to EBACE2023 this year, we are demonstrating the maturity of this program. The G800 presents a compelling combination of high-speed aerodynamics and fuel-efficient engines to decrease emissions and save flying time for our customers. Equipped with our latest advancements in technology and innovation, the G800 adds the industry’s longest range to our aircraft portfolio. We are pleased to display a Gulfstream for every mission in Geneva.”

The G800 cabin can be configured with up to four living areas with seating for up to 19 passengers and sleeping space for up to 10. The aircraft also features 100% fresh, never recirculated air; a plasma ionization purification system; and the lowest cabin altitude in the industry.

The G800 will be on display at EBACE2023 (space AD_08), alongside the Gulfstream G280, the Gulfstream G500, the Gulfstream G600, the Gulfstream G650ER and the Gulfstream G700.
