Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. has announced that the all-new Gulfstream G700 has obtained European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) type certification, following the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) type certification granted on March 29.

Prior to receiving FAA certification, Gulfstream revealed performance enhancements for the G700 in terms of range, speed, and cabin altitude. The aircraft’s range has been extended to 7,750 nautical miles/14,353 kilometers at Mach 0.85 or 6,650 nm/12,316 km at Mach 0.90, surpassing the original projections by 250 nm/463 km at both speeds.

The maximum operating speed of the G700 has been raised from Mach 0.925 to Mach 0.935, establishing it as the fastest in the Gulfstream fleet.

Furthermore, the cabin altitude, already the lowest in business aviation, has been reduced to 2,840 ft/866 m while cruising at 41,000 ft/12,497 m, ensuring enhanced comfort for passengers.
