The Gulfstream G700 is a large plane, 10 feet longer than the G650, powered by 2 Royce Pearl 700 engines and equipped with new winglets.
Winglets allow the wings to be more efficient at creating lift, which means planes require less power from the engines. That results in greater fuel economy, lower CO2 emissions, and lower costs for airlines.
