Global 7500, Gulfstream answer is the G700 or G750

To share this publication :

The arrival of the Global 7500 with its better than expected performance has dethroned the Gulfstream G650ER in terms of capacity and range. According to what learned Les Ailes du Québec, the American OEM would have decided to retaliate as soon as possible with a new version that would be named G700 or G750 and whose range would be slightly greater than that of the Global 7500 which is 7,700 nautical miles.

The new Gulfstream aircraft would be equipped with the new Rolls-Royce BR718NG or Pearl 18 engine with a thrust of 18,000 LBS. This engine is currently codenamed BR3043 and will be produced at the Rolls-Royce Polish factory witch is in partnership with Safran. Since it is a derivative of the BR700NG engine to equip the Global 5500 and 6500, the development time will be very short while the first deliveries to Gulfstream would be scheduled for 2019.

Gulfstream’s quick reaction is surprising and suggests that it had already known for some months that the Global 7500 performed better than the G650ER. Possibly Gulstream would make an announcement at the NBAA in October in Orlando, Florida.

For its part, Bombardier Business Aircraft holds a wild card in its hand with the Global 8000 whose planned range of 7,900 nautical miles could easily be revised upward based on the results of the Global 7500 which shares many innovations with the 8500. Bombardier Business Aircraft has managed to take a step ahead of his opponent who is reacting to the last announcement rather than the next.

Bombardier Business Aircraft to refuse to comment on the information since it is not in his habit to comment on the products of his competitors especially since no official announcement has been made

    I spent the last 4 yrs with Gulfstream Flight Test certifying the G500 / G600 whose engine nacelles Nordam just stopped all production and development on.
    No other aircraft derivitives are in the hangar, or tooling. In fact, Gulfstream has been more focused on Honda Jet, and their possible entry into their current market, than Bombardier’s larger fleet development.
    Meaning, there is no larger cabin development past the G650ER further than the concept phase, and the company under new leadership eliminated well over half of their knowledgeable personnel from flight test and development.

      That is interesting information. The BR3043 is scheduled for first delivery one 2019, if Gulfstream is not the customer that leaves only Dassault or Cessna. For the moment I stand with what I have wrote until new information are being added.

      I would also ad that if Gulfstream goal is to have a longer range, than they don’t have to stretch the fuselage. Some new engines less thirsty will do the job.

    Interesting how 2 years can bring such clarity. Now Gulfstream is well into their flight test program with the new G700. Turns out Mr. Moore who commented above did not have the inside info he thought he had.

    Also, “official” range numbers seem a little arbitrary since, even though the Global 7500 has a longer range than the G650ER, the 650ER still holds the record for longest corporate jet flight and has taken that title back from the Global 7500 on a couple occasions. The G700 range numbers will be interesting to see.
