The engine type was purpose-designed for Gulfstream and is on track to receive its certification next year. It is the most powerful product in the Rolls-Royce business jet propulsion portfolio flying today and the exclusive powerplant for the all-new Gulfstream G700 and Gulfstream G800.

With more than 3,600 business jets in service today powered by Rolls-Royce, the company is the number one engine supplier in this market.

Dr Dirk Geisinger, Director Business Aviation, Rolls-Royce, said: “Our whole business aviation team is very excited about this latest success for our market-leading Pearl engine family and I would like to congratulate Gulfstream on this special occasion. The Pearl 700 is a pioneering product, that brings together our latest technology to deliver outstanding efficiency. It is part of our commitment to reach net zero operations and has already proved its ability to run on 100% sustainable aviation fuel. We are now in the final phase of the engine certification programme and everybody at our team is fully committed to support a smooth entry into service of the Pearl 700 next year.”

“Gulfstream is pleased with the performance capabilities of the Pearl 700 engine and excited to partner with Rolls-Royce for the longest-range aircraft we have produced,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream. “Gulfstream and Rolls-Royce have been doing business together since the Gulfstream I, introduced more than 60 years ago, and we know our customers will greatly benefit from the performance capabilities and efficiencies of these engines. Rolls‑Royce’s after-market support also dovetails excellently with Gulfstream Customer Support, further enhancing our customers’ ownership experience.”

The Pearl 700 combines the Advance2 engine core, the most efficient core available across the business aviation sector, with a brand-new low-pressure system, resulting in an 8% increase in take-off thrust at 18,250lb compared to the BR725 engine. The engine offers a 5% higher efficiency, while maintaining its class-leading low noise and emissions performance. The result is an engine that is highly efficient but also able to propel customers nearly as fast as the speed of sound (Mach 0.925).

The engine’s pioneering technology, combined with outstanding performance, supports Gulfstream’s business aircraft in reaching new standards for the top end of the ultra-long-range corporate jet market. The engine has been developed at the Rolls-Royce Centre of Excellence for Business Aviation Engines in Dahlewitz, Germany and is currently finalising a comprehensive test and certification programme.

Designed for outstanding reliability, the Pearl family is supported by Rolls‑Royce's CorporateCare Enhanced, the most comprehensive service programme in business aviation. CorporateCare Enhanced offers substantial financial and operational benefits, increasing asset value and liquidity, mitigating maintenance cost risk and protecting against the unforeseen costs of unscheduled events anywhere in the world, plus increased aircraft availability, reduced management burden, full risk transfer, direct priority access to the Rolls-Royce services infrastructure and remote site assistance.

The Pearl engine family is part of the Rolls-Royce IntelligentEngine vision of a future where product and service become indistinguishable thanks to advancements in digital capability. As well as a new-generation Engine Health Monitoring System that introduces advanced vibration detection, the family benefits from the incorporation of advanced remote engine diagnostics. It is also enabled for bi-directional communications, allowing for easy remote reconfiguration of engine-monitoring features from the ground. Cloud-based analytics, smart algorithms and Artificial Intelligence continue to play an increasing role in delivering exceptional levels of availability.
