Gulfstream G700 Surpasses 1,100 Flight Hours

Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. today announced the Gulfstream G700 flight-test program has made significant progress, surpassing 1,100 hours of flying and completing new company test regimens, all within the program’s first year.

After its maiden voyage on Feb. 14, 2020, the G700 successfully completed several critical phases-of-flight tests, including envelope expansion, flutter, aerodynamic stalls, flying qualities, flight control systems and air-data testing. The test fleet then went on to conduct winglet and wing-ice shape stall testing, loads testing and initial cold-weather testing at the McKinley Climatic Laboratory at Eglin Air Force Base in Florida. The test aircraft have performed avionics testing in Chicago, as well as Van Nuys, San Jose and Oakland, California.
