Qatar Executive recently welcomed the new Gulfstream G700 in a special demonstration event at Hamad International Airport in Doha. The business charter service provider has been chosen as the G700’s global launch customer by the manufacturer Gulfstream Aerospace. They will be adding 10 of these carefully designed jets to its ultra-modern fleet of aircrafts in 2022.
Discovering the New Gulfstream G700
Qatar Executive has a highly refined and technology-focused taste when choosing new additions to its fleet. Equipped with two all-new Roll-Royce Pearl 700 engines and an advanced wing design, Gulfstream’s new flagship can reach an astonishing speed of Mach 0.925 and fly up to 7,500 nautical miles (13,890 km). With a superb environmental efficiency, this powerful jet promotes sustainable business aviation. The G700 can not only travel faster and farther, it is also the largest aircraft in the business jet industry. This is something you can tell from the first moment you see it in the hangar: it’s insanely big!
The Gulfstream G700 easily impresses with a spacious, innovative and flexible cabin along with 20 panoramic windows – the largest in business aviation. During the launch event, we visited the demonstration aircraft, although Qatar Executive, as well as other customers, will have the option to customize the interiors with up to five elegant living areas.
The cabin has a maximum capacity of 19 passengers and can sleep up to 13 in really comfortable seats, which can be transformed into ergonomic beds. There is even the possibility to upgrade the last living area to a bedroom compartment with en-suite bathroom. A circadian lighting system and an ultra-low cabin altitude provide the ultimate comfort experience for passengers traveling on the G700.
Gulfstream G650ER Flight Experience
The Gulfstream G650ER is the G700’s precursor in Qatar Executive’s fleet; certainly, another commitment to extraordinary design, comfort and flight performance. We experienced a two-hour flight on this private plane over Doha with an expert 5-star crew who catered a delicious gourmet lunch onboard.
The flight route was perfectly calculated by the pilots to draw the initials of Qatar Executive (QE) in the sky! Finally, they performed an impressive maneuver showing the power and the reliability of these technologically-advanced jets: we reached an altitude of 50,000 feet! With distinct areas for working, dining, entertaining and relaxing, the G650ER is a luxury hideaway above the clouds.
