Several milestones have been passed in the flight test programme for the Gulfstream G700. The fleet of three G700 development aircraft (including the prototype, N700GA c/n 87001, seen here) have completed more than 100 test sorties and the flight envelope has been expanded to include a maximum speed of Mach 0.99 and altitude of 54,000ft, beyond the advertised maximum cruising criteria of Mach 0.925 and 51,000ft. The G700 is the largest member of the Gulfstream family, with a five-zone living area in the cabin and the longest range, able to fly 7,500 nm while cruising at Mach 0.85.
Pilatus PC-24, HB-WB (c/n 186), the first of six for Kommunalforbundet Svenskt Ambulansflyg (KSA) 'Swedish municipal ambulance flight,' made its maiden sortie on July 22, 2020 at its manufacturer's Stans airfield. After initial flight tests by Pilatus, the aircraft was due to be transferred to the Swiss engineering and completions company, Aerolite, to install its aeromedical interior. KSA ordered the jet in 2019 and will become the third operator of aeromedically configured PC-24s when the first is delivered to the Swedish firm early next year. The jet is to be registered SE-RVA once delivered.
