Description of GULFSTREAM G800
In early October 2021, Gulfstream announced the arrival of two new aircraft in its fleet. The G400 and the G800, the latter revolutionizing range performance in its category. With an average speed of 0.85 Mach (1050 km/h), this business jet can travel up to 14,816 km. Its maximum speed can reach 0.925 Mach, or 1,142 km/h.
This aircraft is equipped with new Rolls-Royce engines with high thrust and a new aerodynamic wing design. The G800 is therefore able to combine speed and performance while minimizing fuel consumption.
Finally, from a safety point of view, in addition to ticking a number of boxes, the G800 is equipped with a landing prediction system, which alerts and assists the pilot in the event of a possible runway excursion.
Its arrival on the business aviation market is scheduled for 2023.

Finally, in the cabin, you will find an air renewal system, guaranteeing clean air free of bacteria, viruses and odor nuisances. Thanks to the plasma ionization system, which renews the cabin every two minutes with purified air.
