written by | July 20, 2011
The G250 has been renamed the G280.

Gulfstream has renamed its midsized G250 business jet the G280, as ‘280’ is a “more amenable number sequence in some cultures,” according to Larry Flynn, senior vice president, marketing and sales.

“We value our international customers highly, and this change reflects our commitment to understanding the diverse cultures of our global business environment.”

The G280 is currently in flight test, with the three development aircraft to date having flown over 1400 flight hours in more than 525 flights.
