Gulfstream renamed the G250 as the G280, numerically irregular when looking at the rest of the series, as, in Chinese culture, the number 250 is considered negative and the American company wished to demonstrate their understanding of foreign cultures and how highly they value their international customers. Name aside, this Super Midsize jet has captured global attention since its launch in 2012 for its incredible performance. It has an excellent range of over 6600km, further than its Cessna, Bombardier and Hawker rivals and is extremely fast, having set a number of new city-pairing records. Gulfstream believe that it also has the best fuel efficiency in its category and challenge anyone to find a more comfortable cabin. The interior of the G280 is not only larger and more spacious than its competitors, accommodating up to 9 passengers in a Club 4 formation, three-seater sofa and two additional seats, but it also offers state-of-the-art technology to create a silent cabin environment. The G280 truly represents a perfect combination of style and substance and provides the most complete service of any aircraft in its class.
