Has Satisfied European Airworthiness And Environmental Requirements
Gulfstream Aerospace Corp.’s G280 aircraft received type certification Thursday from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). The certification recognizes that the super mid-sized aircraft demonstrates compliance with EASA airworthiness and environmental requirements. 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, a joint effort between Gulfstream and Israel Aerospace Industries, earned its type certification from the FAA and Civil Aviation Authority of Israel on August 30, 2012. It entered service on November 13, 2012.
The aircraft’s range is 3,600 nautical miles at Mach 0.80. Its balanced field length is 210 feet less than originally announced, which enables it to take off from runways of 4,750 feet (1,448 m) or less. That is an improvement of more than 1,300 feet compared to the G200, the aircraft the G280 replaces. The G280 has a maximum operating speed of Mach 0.85.
Advanced technology is also part of the G280’s appeal. The PlaneView280 cockpit, the most advanced flight deck in its class, improves safety through reduced pilot workload and improved situational awareness. Gulfstream says the G280 is also environmentally efficient, burning less fuel and producing fewer emissions than other super mid-sized aircraft. It is quiet, with certified noise levels 15.8 decibels below FAA Stage 4 requirements.
