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.
