Gulfstream G280 Receives Full FAA Certification

Gulfstream’s new super-midsize business jet was officially certified today.  The Gulfstream G280 (formally known as the G250) was formally introduced four years ago as the successor to the G200.  The certification by the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the Civil Aviation Authority of Israel (CAAI) is one of the final hurdles that need to be cleared before the delivery of the first fully outfitted G280 to a customer.
