What was it like flying two G700s to more than 20 countries on the G700 World Tour? Hear from the crew who supported the 25-record-breaking mission to showcase real-world performance and the most spacious cabin in the industry.
“The G700 world tour was a tremendous success,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream. “We knew the aircraft would perform exceptionally well, and they exceeded even our own high expectations for both reliability and performance across a variety of routes. Showcasing the outfitted aircraft to our customers and prospects around the world bolstered the already strong demand we are seeing for the G700.”
In total, the two G700 outfitted aircraft traveled 53,882 nautical miles/99,789 kilometers over more than 180 hours of flying. Notable speed records achieved by the G700 include:
• Savannah to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, in 12 hours, 36 minutes at an average speed of Mach 0.90 to begin the international portion of the tour
• Istanbul, Turkey, to Van Don International Airport in Vietnam, in 9 hours, 2 minutes at an average speed of Mach 0.90
• Riyadh to Melbourne, Australia, in 13 hours, 39 minutes at an average speed of Mach 0.87
• Christchurch, New Zealand, to Los Angeles in 12 hours, 13 minutes at an average speed of Mach 0.87
