  1. Gulfstream G280 Sets OverWater Record
    General Dynamics company Gulfstream just announced that the G280 set another record but this feat was in relation to an overwater mission. The mission took the aircraft from Carlsbad, California to Kalaoa, Hawaii. The flight spanned 2,257 nautical miles taking 4 hours and 47 minutes. “Flying from California to Hawaii involves crossing one of the longest isolated overwater stretches in the world, and the G280 can do that with ease, even after departing the short runway at Carlsbad,” said Scott Neal, senior vice president, Worldwide Sales, Gulfstream. “The class-leading performance of the G280 means this aircraft can connect cities other aircraft in the class just can’t, including flying reliably from London to New York.”
  2. The G280, which has earned 57 speed records since its November 2012 entry into service, can fly eight passengers 3,600 nm/6,667 km at Mach 0.80. The city-pair record, which was approved by U.S. National Aeronautic Association, was sent to the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale in Switzerland for recognition as a world record. This particular flight was flown at an average speed of Mach 0.84 between McClellan-Palomar Airport to Kona International Airport.
