Gulfstream Aerospace's flagship G700 aircraft set its seventh international city-pair speed record en route to EBACE in Geneva, where the aircraft made its debut.
The G700 flew the record flight, linking Savannah, Georgia, to Geneva in 7 hours and 37 minutes at an average speed of Mach 0.90 and on sustainable aviation fuel (SAF).
General Dynamics, Gulfstream Aerospace's parent company, said in April that the certification of the upcoming Gulfstream G700 business jet could be pushed back to next year as the FAA brings unforeseen requirements to the certification process.

The Gulfstream G800 is expected to follow, and receive certification six to nine months after the G700.
