Gulfstream Aerospace has delivered the 200th G280, a milestone reached some eight years after the super-midsize business jet entered service.June 30, 2020, 4:33 PMGulfstream Aerospace has delivered the 200thG280, a milestone reached some eight years after the super-midsize business jet entered service, the Savannah, Georgia-based aircraft manufacturer announced this week. The G280 rolled out in 2009 and then was certified by the FAA in 2012 and EASA in 2013. “This is a tremendous milestone,” said Gulfstream president Mark Burns. “As when it entered the marketplace in 2012, the G280’s combination of performance, comfort, safety and efficiency put it atop the mid-cabin class.” As of April, the in-service G280 fleet had accrued nearly 236,100 flight hours and completed more than 145,000 landings. The aircraft model has a dispatch reliability rate of 99.81 percent, according to Gulfstream. Based on the IAI Galaxy (renamed the G200 after Gulfstream acquired Galaxy Aerospace in 2001), the 10-passenger G280 included a new wing, tail, Honeywell HTF7250G engines, and interior, as well as the Collins Aerospace Pro Line Fusion-based Gulfstream PlaneView280 flight deck. The G280, which has amassed 75 city-pair speed records to date, can fly 3,600 nm at Mach 0.80. Meanwhile, it was reported early last year that Gulfstream and IAI had begun working on the next-generation variant of the G280 under a project dubbed P32. Business Aviation
