The city-pair record is among 75 that the G280 has collected. In another record nod this year, the super-midsize business jet completed a 2,515-nm flight from Hawaii's Kahului Airport to Phoenix in 4 hours and 57 minutes. The G280 also averaged a cruise speed of Mach 0.83 on that January 5 mission.
“These latest city-pair speed records are further proof of the aircraft’s superior performance capabilities bolstered by its advanced wing, robust airframe, and powerful engines,” said Gulfstream president Mark Burns.
The twinjet, which Gulfstream said is the only one in its category to be certified for EFVS-to-land operations, can fly four passengers 3,600 nm at Mach 0.80 or 3,000 nm at Mach 0.84. Some 200 G280s are in service worldwide.
