EASA certifies the G280
The super midsize Gulfstream G280 has been certified by the European Aviation Safety Agency.
The Gulfstream G280 has received type certification from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). It is one of the final steps required for the G280 to be registered in a European Union country.
“Getting EASA certification is an important milestone for the G280,” said Larry Flynn, president, Gulfstream. “This aircraft is the most fuel-efficient and most comfortable in its class, and it offers unprecedented range for its size. It is the only super mid-sized business jet that can reliably fly nonstop from London to New York. That feature is very important to operators.”
The G280 received its type certification from the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and Civil Aviation Authority of Israel on August 30, 2012. The first G280 entered service on November 13, 2012.
