The Gulfstream G280 is a super midsize jet developed by Gulfstream Aerospace and manufactured by Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI).
Initially designated the name Gulfstream G250, its first flight was in 2009 before the project was later renamed to the G280. Developed as a follow-on aircraft to the Gulfstream G200, the newer G280 featured many design improvements including a larger cabin, new glass cockpit and a larger wing design derived from the Gulfstream G550 ultra-long-range jet.
Unlike other members of the Gulfstream family, the G280 is manufactured in Israel by IAI. The airframes are then flown to Gulfstream’s facility in Dallas in the United States for interior completion and painting.
To date, more than 200 Gulfstream G280s have been manufactured and delivered worldwide.
