Gulfstream has introduced new features and options for the super-midsize G280. The cabin can now be equipped with Gulfstream’s plasma ionisation clean air system.
The OEM said the system, which complements a cabin environment that already offers 100% fresh air, has proven in lab tests to neutralise pathogens and allergens.
“We are seeing tremendous demand for the G280, further proving the aircraft is the high-performing super-midsize leader,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream. “We remain confident in the G280’s proven track record and are committed to investing in enhancements that further increase the benefits it offers customers.”
A series of additional avionics features are now available for customers who choose avionics upgrade V3.6.1, including SiriusXM graphical weather with real-time updates; dual electronic charts; a surface management system; and access to vertical weather and predictive windshear information.
In addition, to reduce customer downtime, Gulfstream also increased the G280’s vertical separation minimum validation intervals from 24 to 96 months. Controller-Pilot Datalink Communication is also now FANS-E compliant.
The G280 is certified for steep approaches, providing access to some of the world’s most challenging airports, and has recently been certified to the FAA’s Stage 5 noise standards. It has Visual Advantage credit, giving select operators authorisation to dispatch and begin instrument approaches in low-visibility conditions below published approach minima.
The cabin offers multiple floorplan options and seats up to 10 passengers with a four-place conference table. It features Gulfstream’s cabin management and high-definition entertainment systems, 19 oval windows, access to baggage at high altitudes and multiple connectivity options, including a high-speed Ka-band satellite system.
