Gulfstream Aerospace super-midsize G280 displayed its performance and steep-approach capability recently while setting another city-pair speed record. On Feb. 16, the aircraft departed Vermont’s Burlington International Airport, arriving 6 hours and 10 minutes later with a steep-approach landing at London City Airport. The 2,735-nautical mile/5,065-kilometer trans-Atlantic journey was completed at an average speed of Mach 0.83. Aircraft that operate at London City require steep-approach certification because of the airport’s short runway and stringent noise-abatement requirements. Nearly 200 G280s are in service worldwide.
