The G200 was taken over by Gulfstream Aerospace in 2001 after it was originally designed as the Astra Galaxy by Israel Aircraft Industries in the early 1990’s. The design by IAI was based on the Astra SP, which would go on to become the G100.
Cruising at speeds of 544 mph, reaching speeds of 0.85 mach, and delivering a 3,200 nautical mile range, executives and luxury travelers enjoy hiring the G200 for cross country flights to meetings and special events.
Compared to its derivative the G100, the G200 offers a much wider cabin and 16 windows for plenty of natural light, along with more powerful Pratt & Whitney Canada PW306 engines in place of the smaller Honeywells.
Interior features include seating available for 8-9 passengers, a private, fully enclosed bathroom, a 100% fresh air cabin system, and the largest baggage compartment in its class. A cabin height of 6’3″ offers standing room to easily navigate the cabin and stretch during long flights, and a jump set is available to include a flight attendant.
The G280 took over in 2011 following the success of the 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 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 G200’s 6,080 foot runway requirement.
The combined aerodynamic and engine improvements not only increase runway capabilities and in-air performance, 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 Enchanced 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 the G280 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 term 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.
Purchasing a G200 or G280?
Production on the G200 ended in 2011, and there are dozens of pre-owned G200’s available for purchase on used market. They’ve proven to be a valuable investment as many fractional programs and charter operators continue acquiring G200’s for their fleets.
The G280 is an attractive aircraft for business and executive groups thanks to its low operating costs – in fact, the G280’s operating costs are less than a Hawker 800XP’s, all while outperforming it in terms of speed, cabin size, and range.

Jet Cards vs On-Demand Charter
Purchasing a 25, 50, or 100 hour jet card for super mid-size jets like the G200/G280 is a great way to experience the flexibility and convenience of private aviation. A private jet card can open the door to luxurious air travel, but the key necessary to unlock it comes in the form of upfront membership costs, locking you into a fixed rate whenever you redeem your hours.
That said, on-demand jet charter offers the same flexible and convenient travel experience, and usually at a lower cost. Our brokers scan the entire charter market, connecting you to G200/G280 and similar super mids for your flight, complete with the most competitive rates at this level of service.
The average hourly jet card rates for large jets including the Gulfstream G200 can run as high as $8,000 – $10,500 an hour, varying based on provider and membership level. Compare that to ACA average hourly charter rates, which have been chartered for as low as $7,000 an hour.
