Overview & History
The Gulfstream G800 was announced in October 2021. Deliveries are due to begin in 2024 with the first flight having taken place in June 2022. The wings and engines are shared with the Gulfstream G700.
The G800 has a starting list price of $71.5 million. The aircraft has a top speed of Mach 0.925 and a maximum range of 8,000 nautical miles.
This, therefore, is in direct competition with the latest flagship aircraft from Bombardier – the Global 8000. The Global 8000 also has a maximum range of 8,000 nautical miles.
Gulfstream G800 Performance
The G800 is powered by two Rolls-Royce Pearl 700 engines. Each engine is capable of outputting up to 18,250 lbs of thrust. This, therefore, results in a total thrust output of 36,500 lbs of thrust.
As a result, the Gulfstream G800 is able to cruise at a maximum speed of Mach 0.925. The high-speed cruise figure is Mach 0.90, whereas the optimum long-range cruise speed is Mach 0.85.
In optimum conditions, the G800 is able to cruise non-stop for up to 8,000 nautical miles. Of course, this is the NBAA IFR theoretical range assuming a cruise speed of Mach 0.85 with 8 passengers, 4 crew, and NBAA IFR reserves. There are a variety of factors that will influence the real-world range.
Given the size and weight of the G800, it has a highly impressive takeoff distance at MTOW of just 6,000 feet.
Additionally, the maximum cruise altitude is 51,000 feet, with an initial cruise altitude of 41,000 feet.
Gulfstream G800 Interior
Inside, the G800 has been designed for maximum comfort and efficiency. Given that the G800 can fly non-stop between continents, the interior needs to accommodate relaxation, sleeping, working, and dining.
Additionally, given that the G800 is Gulfstream’s flagship aircraft it has been equipped with all the latest technology and the finest materials.
As you would expect, the cabin altitude for the G800 is extremely low. A lower cabin altitude will make for a more pleasant cabin environment, as well as reduce the effects of jet lag.
Additionally, cabin air is replenished every 2 to 3 minutes with 100% fresh air. Moreover, the air is purified by Gulfstream’s plasma-ionization clean air system.
Throughout the cabin, there are 16 panoramic oval windows, which, according to Gulfstream, are the largest in the industry. These windows drench the cabin in natural light and provide breathtaking views of the world below.
The cabin can be configured to have up to 4 distinct living areas and can accommodate up to 19 passengers, with space to sleep up to 10.
The cabin can be configured to have a dedicated crew rest area, multiple divans, a conference suite, and a private suite. Of course, when you are configuring your aircraft you can lay it out however you need to suit your requirements.
The G800 is equipped with Gulfstream’s award-winning Symmetry Flight Deck. According to Gulfstream, this has revolutionized business aviation. The design of the Symmetry Flight Deck results in, according to Gulfstream, vast improvements in safety and efficiency.
Nonverbal communication between pilots has been increased through tactile cues thanks to the active control sidesticks. According to Gulfstream, the active control sticks on the G800 are an industry first.
Inside the cockpit, the G800 features the most extensive use of touch screens in business aviation with ten touch-screen displays. These displays work in sync with Phase-of-Flight intelligence in order to reduce the number of switches in the flight deck. One of the benefits of this is that it reduces pilot workload. This, therefore, increases the safety and efficiency of operation.
Pilots will also be able to enjoy the dual head-up displays which feature Guflstream’s new Combined Vision System (CVS). This system unites Enhanced Flight Vision System (EFVS) and Synthetic Vision System (SVS) into a single image. This, therefore, increases pilot situational awareness and increases access to more airports.
And finally, the G800 features Gulfstream’s award-winning predictive landing performance system. As a result, this system helps to prevent runway overruns.
Gulfstream G800 Charter Cost
Given that the Gulfstream G800 is yet to be delivered, there are currently no charter aircraft on the market.
However, the estimated hourly charter price will be higher than that of the G650ER.
The list price for a brand new Gulfstream G800 is $71.5 million. Of course, this is before any options and customizations have been completed.
Therefore, the final price will likely be higher.
Additionally, given that the G800 is yet to hit the pre-owned market it is impossible to provide a pre-owned value or depreciation estimate.
However, generally speaking, Gulfstream aircraft hold their value exceptionally well. Therefore, it is relatively safe to assume that the G800 will maintain strong values in the years to come.
