Gulfstream G280 Now Certified by the FAA
On September 3, 2012, Gulfstream officially announced that the FAA certified the super mid-sized Gulfstream G280. This newly designed G280 model, which replaced the G200, has been regarded as the best-in-class-aircraft of its category. With its highly improved performance features, advanced technology, and outstanding passenger comfort, the G280 has surpassed all other super mid-sized business jets in more ways than one.
Gulfstream certainly went above and beyond to carefully engineer the G280 to reach its highest potential. With a maximum long range of 3,600 nautical miles at a maximum operating speed of Mach .85, passengers can fly effortlessly from New York to London or New York to Los Angeles without a fuel stop. The newly installed transonic wing design and fuel-efficient Honeywell engines enhanced the G280s field performance tremendously. Able to depart from runways as small as 4,150 ft and climb to a maximum altitude of 45,000 ft, exemplifies just what this jet aircraft can do.
Touting a larger cabin embellished with cozier seating, a larger lavatory, along with expanded galley space, are among the many reasons why private jet fliers are ecstatic to test out this new and improved Gulfstream private aircraft. Not only are Air Charter buyers excited, but also private aircraft pilots are raving about the advanced cockpit features such as the PlaneView280TM avionics panel accentuated with three 15-inch screens, interactive controls, and advanced graphics. This advanced flight deck improves situational awareness and safety all around providing passengers the confidence in knowing their pilots are working with the most advanced technology in private aviation.
The Gulfstream G280 will be available to the public by the end of this year. In the mean time, if you have any additional questions regarding the G280 feel free to contact a Stratos Jets agent at 888-478-7286, who can help answer any questions you may have. We look forward to educating you and organizing your next jet charter flight!
