Gulfstream gives G280 avionics software upgrade
Gulfstream Aerospace has given the G280 business jet an avionics software upgrade.
The new PlaneView 280 software, offered in conjunction with Rockwell Collins, 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. With this upgrade, the aircraft’s performance is even better.”
Dan Nale, senior vice president, Programs, Engineering and Test, Gulfstream said: “The G280 was already a top-performing aircraft in its class. 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 9 knots. The landing distance with the new software is 2,380 feet/725 meters, a decrease of 270 ft/82 m.
