Aircraft > Super Midsize Jets

The G280 took over in 2011 following the success of the Gulfstream 200, and it quickly became a popular choice for cross country and transatlantic charter flights thanks to its class-leading cabin space and incredible performance.

Like the 200, it still features the widest, tallest cabin in its class and the same massive storage space, with an additional window added to bring the total to 19. Additional upgrades include two full-sized windows in its enclosed lavatory, as well as a vacuum toilet, a lav system that Gulfstream claims to be unique in its class.

The new model features a number of additional improvements to make it a worthy successor: advanced transonic wings are optimized for high-speed cruising; increased take-off performance allows MTOW (max take-off weight) utilizing a 4,750-foot runway compared to the previous model’s 6,080-foot runway requirement.

The combined aerodynamic and engine improvements not only increase runway capabilities and in-air performance, but it also adds an additional 200 nautical miles of range.

Safety is also improved with advanced flight deck components including the PlaneView280; HUD II guidance systems and Enhanced Vision Systems (EVS II) to reduce pilot workload and enhance awareness in low-visibility situations; an innovative ‘auto-braking’ safety enhancement, a first in the industry, works with its brake-by-wire system to improve reliability.

High-speed performance, one of the widest cabins in its class, enhanced safety features, and impressive short-runway performance make it a significant upgrade to its predecessor and an excellent business jet for executive charter flights. Low operating costs make it a preferred choice for private individual and corporate flight departments – in fact, the G280’s operating costs are less than a Hawker 800XP while outperforming it in speed, cabin size, and range.

Did You Know?
The G280 was originally branded as the G250, however, when translated from Mandarin, the number 250 can be used as slang for ‘stupid, idiot, or simpleton’ – “Introducing the all-new super mid-size jet to take your business global – the Gulfstream Simpleton.”

As you can imagine, this created a bit of a marketing problem as Gulfstream prepared to introduce their new super midsize business jet to a lucrative Asian market. Due to the cultural sensitivity surrounding the potentially misunderstood nomenclature, it was rebranded as the G280.
