Gulfstream G700 earns additional certifications

Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. announced the all-new Gulfstream G700 has earned additional Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certifications following the G700 FAA type certification on March 29. The new production and interior supplemental type certifications further clear the G700 for customer deliveries and entry into service.

The G700 cabin supplemental type certifications officially approve the interior outfitting of the G700 and its cabin air purification system. The FAA production certification (PC) confirms that Gulfstream’s production processes for the G700 are compliant with federal aviation regulations. The FAA issued the PC after an extensive audit of Gulfstreams engineering, supplier, manufacturing and quality systems to ensure the aircraft will be produced in accordance with the FAA-approved design.

“Receiving these additional clearances so quickly on the heels of FAA type certification showcases how mature the G700 program is,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream. Thanks to the investments made in advanced manufacturing and interior innovations, operators will benefit from the industry leading quality, fit and finish of the G700. We look forward to our customers experiencing firsthand the cabin comfort and performance capabilities of this fine aircraft.

The G700 features the most spacious cabin in the business aviation industry as well as the Gulfstream Cabin Experience with the cabin air purification air system, 100% fresh air, the lowest cabin altitude in the industry, whisper-quiet sound levels and 20 of the largest windows in the industry.

The G700 is manufactured at Gulfstreams Savannah headquarters along with all ultra-large and large-cabin aircraft. Production methods for the next-generation Gulfstream fleet were designed with the Savannah-based research and development team and include advanced automation, 3D model designs, and robotic and bonding techniques that result in unprecedented quality and precision.
