Code 7700

About Us

Eddie sez:

What?

Code 7700 is designed for pilots wishing to avoid having to squawk 7700 and to help them for when that day comes. It includes many items specific to flying the Gulfstream G500 but most of the lessons apply to the airlines and military too.

Where?

Most our visitors come from the U.S., but there are many others. Here are the top 20:

  1. United States
  2. Canada
  3. Saudi Arabia
  4. China
  5. Great Britain
  6. Germany
  7. Russian Federation
  8. Italy
  9. Turkey
  10. India
  11. France
  12. South Koreaa
  13. Australia
  14. Brazil
  15. Ukraine
  16. Switzerland
  17. Spain
  18. United Arab Emirates

You can probably establish the order by the number of Gulfstream aircraft operators.

When?

All of this started over forty years ago with a lot of notes. Lots and lots of notes taken on scraps of paper and spiral bound notebooks. Then they became multiple copies of Jeppesen binders. In 2007 I started posting them on line in various websites. In 2009 it all became www.code7700.com and here we are.

Who?

As you might suspect, most of our visitors are Gulfstream pilots. But we get a lot of traffic from pilots of other types of corporate jets as well as from the airlines and various militaries around the world. We also get a fair amount of email from engineers, government regulators around the world, colleges, and parts of industry.

Why?

Eddie has been collecting aviation notes for almost 40 years and needs a place to put them. Putting them online forces Eddie to keep the notes relevant and (he hopes) useful. It also gives him a lot of error checking and feedback, which he desperately needs.

How?

Eddie pays for the website with his saved pennies. If you would like to help offset that cost, you can here: Patreon/Code7700.

How Many?

In the year 2019, our low month had 3.5 million hits (December), when the website was down for maintenance half of the month. Our high saw 6.0 million hits (August). In a typical month, over 50,000 unique visitors frequent our pages. On behalf of Larry, Wally, and "The Beav," thanks!
