Gulfstream's new super mid-sized G280 will make its UK debut at this year's BGAD. The aircraft has more than 30 city-pair speed records to its name and offers a range of 3,600nm at Mach 0.80. Gulfstream says it is the only super mid-sized aircraft that can travel from London to New York at any time of the year. It can also connect London with Montreal or Bermuda.
The G280 is equipped with PlaneView280 cockpit, said to be one of the most advanced flight decks in its class. The system improves safety through reduced pilot workload and enhanced situational awareness. The aircraft is environmentally efficient, burning less fuel and producing fewer emissions than other super mid-sized aircraft. It is also quiet, with certified noise levels 15.8dB below FAA Stage 4 requirements.
Seating for up to 10 in two living areas is on offer. Passengers have in-flight access to the baggage compartment and the Gulfstream cabin management system enables them to control the cabin environment and entertainment equipment with a handheld device such as an iPod Touch.
