Gulfstream Aerospace is expanding it’s family of business jets with 2 all-new models – the G800 and G400.
The OEM introduced the new aircraft before an audience at its Savannah GA headquarters, while simultaneously hosting a virtual broadcast via its website, Facebook account, and YouTube channel.
The Gulfstream G800, powered by 2 Rolls-Royce Pearl 700 engines, offers the longest range in the company’s fleet – 8000 nm at M 0.85.
Its cabin accommodates up to 19 passengers, and can be configured with as many as 4 living areas.
The G400 excels in environmental performance, reducing fuel burn, emissions, and noise thanks to the manufacturer’s clean-wing design and Pratt & Whitney’s PW812GA engines. It can travel up to 4200 nm at M 0.85, with cabin options for 9, 11, or 12 pax.
Both business jets sport Gulfstream’s Symmetry Flight Deck, featuring electronically-linked active control sidesticks, and a predictive landing performance system that alerts the pilots to potencial runway excursions so they can adjust accordingly.
In addition, the G800 offers dual head-up displays with Gulfstream’s new combined vision system, which merges enhanced flight vision system and synthetic vision system into a single image.
Deliveries for the G800 are expected in 2023, and for the G400 will begin in 2025.
