Gulfstream‘s innovative G700 aircraft just set two international city-pair records. Dubbed as the world’s largest business jet, the aircraft took off from Savannah, Georgia on Friday in destination to Doha, Qatar — a distance of 6,711 nautical miles — and made record time in just 13 hours and 16 minutes at an average speed of Mach 0.88. Thereafter, the test plane, dubbed N706GD, flew from Doha to Paris’ Le Bourget airport — 2,953 nm away — in a swift ride that took merely six hours and 15 minutes at an average speed of Mach 0.90, before heading home.

Acclaimed Parisian photographer, Karl Hab, was there to document this beauty of modern-day aviation. An aircraft that features four customizable living areas and is currently the biggest cabin of any business aircraft in the world. Powered by twin Rolls-Royce Pearl 700 engines, the G700 is capable of flying 7,500 nm at Mach 0.925 and can carry up to 13 passengers, while sleeping 8 at a time.

To comply with the OEM’s sustainability commitment, the G700 used a combination of low-emissions aviation fuel (SAF) and Gulfstream purchased carbon offsets for both legs. Under the right conditions, Gulfstream’s G700 can fly from locations such as Dallas to Hong Kong or London to Chile nonstop — an incredible feat in modern aviation.

Also in the news, Tesla has been ordered to turn over all autopilot data to the NHTSA or face penalties.
