Gulfstream G280 Jet Buyer’s Guide

If you have been shopping for a Super-Mid-size Jet and found the Gulfstream G280 jet to be a good fit for your mission needs, you are going to need to find out more about this model.

Gulfstream's G280 is the smallest model currently produced by Gulfstream Aerospace. But the G280 provides buyers with plenty of size, speed and range capability for its class.

The Gulfstream G280 replaced the older G200 on the production line, and incorporated several improvements, including an increase in cabin length (thanks to the removal of a rear-fuselage fuel tank) and new Honeywell HTF7250G engines that deliver improved operating weights, climb rates and fuel efficiency.
