First G280 delivered by Gulfstream
Gulfstream Aerospace has announced that it has delivered its first super mid-sized G280 aircraft. The fully outfitted business jet went to a US-based manufacturer with a worldwide presence spanning 190 countries.
“Gulfstream is excited to deliver this aircraft to a dedicated customer who has worked so closely with us on the G280 program,” said Scott Neal, senior vice president, sales and marketing, Gulfstream. “In preparation for our first deliveries of this aircraft, we took a G280 to several fixed base operators around the United States, so their employees could familiarize themselves with the handling requirements for the G280. That was just one of several efforts intended to ensure a smooth entry-into-service for this aircraft.”
Neal added: “This is an illustrious occasion that signifies the beginning of full-scale G280 manufacturing. We congratulate the G280 design and build teams, our suppliers and our customers for their tremendous contributions to the G280 program. It won’t be long before we’re seeing the G280 landing and taking off at airports around the world.”
