Gulfstream G280 software upgrade boosts performance
Gulfstream has developed an avionics software upgrade which results in improved aircraft performance.

Gulfstream has developed an avionics software upgrade which results in improved aircraft performance. Now available for the Gulfstream G280, the PlaneView280 software is offered in conjunction with Rockwell Collins and results in slower approach speeds, shorter landing distances and enhanced flight management system performance. "The G280 was already a top-performing aircraft in its class," says Gulfstream senior vp Dan Nale. "With this upgrade, the aircraft's performance is even better. Our customers will appreciate the increased functionality and utility, the operational improvements, the enhanced display layout and the improved situational awareness."

The upgrade reduces G280 approach speeds by up to nine knots. The landing distance with the new software is 2,380 feet, a reduction of 270 ft. The upgrade is available through Gulfstream's service centre at London Luton.
