Read this story in our July 2015 printed issue.

The first Gulfstream G280 to be registered in Morocco has entered service. The aircraft received its type acceptance certificate in March from Morocco's Directorate General of Civil Aviation, whose approval was based on the aircraft's type certification from EASA in February 2013.

With a range of 3,600 nm at Mach 0.80, the G280 can fly non-stop from Casablanca to New York and Dubai. Its delivery flight to Morocco included an opening leg journey from Gulfstream's completions facility in Dallas to Santa Maria Island in the Azores.

The distance of 3,572 nm was covered in six hours, 59 minutes. More than 60 G280s are in operation worldwide.
