  1. RR Pearl 700 Certified By FAA
    The Gulfstream G700 is anticipated to to be certified by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in the fourth quarter of this year. The powerplant powering the G700 had yet to be given full approval by the American regulatory body up until recently. The FAA has now given approval for the Rolls Royce Pearl 700 engine that powers the G700 and also the upcoming G800! Noteworthy is that this same engine was certified by EASA a year ago in September 2022. The BR700-730B2-14 is an advancement on the previous BR725 variant that powers the Gulfstream G650/ER.
  2. "The certification of the Rolls-Royce Pearl 700 engines for the G700 and G800 is a significant step that brings us closer to delivering these game-changing aircraft to our customers," said Gulfstream president Mark Burns. Both models are currently highly sought-after by customers and the new powerplant will provide even better operations, cost as well as performance.
  3. The new engine is roughly 8 percent more powerful with higher takeoff thrust than the previous engine. 18,250 pounds of thrust is where the Pearl 700 is at. Overall it is 5-percent more efficient thereby emitting less emissions under operation. The Pearl 700 is utilizing the Advance2 engine core with a new low-pressure system. The G700 is pegged to be certified in the last quarter of 2023 while the G800 is scheduled to get the FAA nod in mid-2024.
