The Gulfstream G800 represents one of two new offerings by U.S.-based Gulfstream Aerospace alongside the dimensionally smaller G400 model (detailed elsewhere on this site); both products were debuted in a October 2021 release. The pair exudes the elegance and performance expected of modern VIP / business jets through a functional, long-range-minded twin-engine approach. The G800 offers greater payload capacity and range when compared to the similar G400, ferrying passengers in true comfort to-and-from places all over the world.

The aircraft continues established Gulfstream bizjet traits such as low-mounted, swept-back wing mainplanes, sleek styling, outboard-held turbofan engines, and a "T-style" tailplane arrangement. Eight rounded windows dot each side of the streamlined fuselage which seats the crew of two at front aft of the short nosecone. The cockpit provides for ease-of-use and reduced workload thanks to its four large-area touchscreens and side panels showcasing additional systems performance. The center console sports a shared throttle quadrant and general flight control of the aircraft is handled by side-stick controlling paired with an all-modern Fly-by-Wire (FbW) system. The Symmetry Flight Deck (SFD) avionics suite adds safety and efficiency to all phases of flight.

Pilots benefit from the new Combined Vision System (CVS) bringing together the Enhanced Flight Vision System (EFVS) and Synthetic Vision System (SVS) into a single flip-down Head-Up Display (HUD) unit ahead of each pilot's position. This increases pilot situational awareness beyond traditional levels by presenting more pertinent performance and system statuses within easy view - keeping the pilot's eyes on the airspace ahead.

The fuselage is divided into multiple living areas and includes a galley and lavatory available through a modular configuration scheme. The living spaces offer luxurious seating, comfortable tables, and entertainment options through a single-aisle approach. Up to fifteen passengers can be carried and there is provision for sleeping seven. Dedicated crew compartments are also made available in certain setups.

The G800 offers a maximum range of 8,000 nautical miles and can reach speeds of Mach 0.90 while cruising closer to Mach 0.85 speeds. Take-off distance is just 6,000 feet and the initial cruise altitude is 41,000 feet. Maximum cruise altitude is 51,000 feet.

Based on Gulfstream marketing figures, a G800 flight originating from London, England has a reach out to Seattle, Washington in the West, Tokyo, Japan in the East, and Cape Town, South Africa in the South.

Power is provided by 2 x Rolls-Royce Pearl 700 series non-afterburning turbofan engines each rated with a thrust output of 18,250lb. The engines are a high-efficiency model and held outboard of wingstubs at the rear of the aircraft - concentrating thrust while also reducing internal cabin noises from the powerful units.

Maximum Take-Off Weight (MTOW) is rated at 105,600lb with a basic operating weight of 54,300lb.

Dimensions include a length of 99.8 feet, a wingspan of 103 feet, and a height of 25.5 feet.
