First customer delivery of Gulfstream G280 . . . Nov 13/2012

#1 Post by bizjets101 » Tue Sep 04, 2012 4:27 am

Awaiting an official announcement from Gulfstream - FAA certification of the new G280
more posting to come . . . Sept 4 2012

Edit; SAVANNAH, Ga., Sept. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Gulfstream Aerospace Corp.'s best-in-class G280 aircraft has earned type certificates from the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the Civil Aviation Authority of Israel (CAAI). The certificates verify the airworthiness of the aircraft's design and are among the final steps required before Gulfstream delivers the first fully outfitted G280 to a customer.

The G280, a joint effort between Gulfstream and Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI), offers the most comfortable cabin and the longest range at the fastest speed in its class.

"Gulfstream is excited to bring this aircraft to its customers, especially since we're able to provide a plane that does more than we originally announced," said Larry Flynn, president, Gulfstream. "The G280 has a range of 3,600 nautical miles (6,667 km) at Mach 0.80. This increase of 200 nm (370 km) over our original projections results in increased fuel efficiency and lower operating costs for our customers. It's the only mid-sized aircraft that can reliably fly nonstop between London and New York. Additionally, our customers will find that the newly designed G280 has a great deal in common with large-cabin Gulfstream aircraft in terms of safety, reliability, handling, styling and cabin management. The G280 is an all-around fantastic plane."

Biz, what do they mean "in it's class" ? Does the Challenger or Global Express beat it out?

Some dry humor: I wonder how many Arab customers this airplane will attract :)
