Gulfstream G280 Adds Another Speed Record to Books, G650ER and G450 at Paris Air Show Today

Wednesday, May 15th, 2019

Gulfstream at Paris Air Show

Gulfstream G650ER is at Paris Air Show

The Gulfstream G650ER and G450 will be on display at the 2015 Paris Air Show, June 15 through 21.

Gulfstream G280 Adds Another Speed Record to Books

Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. today announced that the Gulfstream G280 recently added to its growing list of city-pair records, this time linking Paris with Abu Dhabi.

Gulfstream G280 sets record

On April 24, the super mid-sized aircraft traveled from Paris-Le Bourget Airport to Abu Dhabi International Airport in the United Arab Emirates. The distance of 2,908 nautical miles/5,386 kilometers was covered in 6 hours and 16 minutes at an average speed of Mach 0.82.

Pending approval by the U.S. National Aeronautic Association, the G280’s 51st city-pair mark will be sent to the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale in Switzerland for consideration as a world record.

Gulfstream G280

“It’s a testament to the G280’s many attributes that we’ve delivered more than 60 of these aircraft to operators in 11 countries,” said Scott Neal, senior vice president, Worldwide Sales and Marketing, Gulfstream. “The G280 had the best range, speed, fuel efficiency and cabin comfort in its class when it entered the marketplace in November 2012, and nothing has changed. It is also one of the most reliable aircraft in the industry.”

Originally projected to fly 3,400 nm/6,297 km, the G280 surpassed expectations by 200 nm/370 km, resulting in more city-pair connections, excellent fuel efficiency and lower operating costs for customers. The aircraft has tremendous performance capabilities and a superior cabin with the Gulfstream-designed cabin management and high-definition entertainment systems, industry-leading sound levels, 19 super-sized windows and in-flight access to the baggage compartment.

Airlines over order at Paris Airshow

The last week was a good one to be a commercial aircraft salesman. Airlines and leasing companies placed options for 1,223 aircraft worth $69 billion at list prices at the Paris Airshow this week. (Obviously many of these aircraft will not be delivered to airlines and no one paid list price, but we should not let that get in the way of a good story).

Airbus and Boeing have sold out production for an astonishing eight to 10 years. Low oil prices are helping airlines make profits and carriers and leasing companies are keen to buy.  Both manufacturers have had three years of record orders. This is a complete contrast to business jet OEMs where backlogs are still falling. Commercial OEMs are upping production whilst we will see less business jets delivered this year rather than next. Bombardier did not announce big orders for the C-Series, but hopefully these are on the way.

Chasing business jets – a guide for business jet spotters

Business jets do not just give pleasure to the people that fly in them. Many people get a buzz just from just seeing a one.

Others take this passion more seriously. There are thousands of amateur aviation photographers (many as good as professionals) and planespotters looking to track down business jets.

Whilst most photographers just collect images, planespotters collect aircraft registrations or manufacturers serial numbers (MSNs) by seeing the aircraft. (You can usually work out the MSN from the aircraft registration, although this is hard in some countries.)

Falcon50_T7DFX at Le Bourget

Aviation photographers are spread throughout the world. With the US and Japan in particular seeming to have many good ones (Japan also deserves credit for encouraging enthusiasts, every airport has at least one viewing platform). Although there are planespotters in every country, it is most popular in the Netherlands, Germany and the UK. No one knows exactly how many planespotters are in each country but there are specialist magazines and books serving the community.

The Monaco 2050 superyacht private-jet set

A step up from offering a helipad and helicopter, the proposed Monaco 2050 superyacht features a detachable private jet that takes off vertically

A superyacht built and decorated to their precise specifications remains an enduringly popular indulgence among the world’s richest, and the unparalleled degree of personalisation they can avail of means their purchases can vary drastically from one another.

Monaco+2050+1 superyacht

Moscow-born Monaco resident Vasily Klyukin, the co-founder of Russia’s Sovcombank, is one entrepreneur seeking to more radically shape the form of future superyachts, by releasing a concept design for the type of vessel he would like to own in the years to come.

His Monaco 2050 proposal (so called because he expects it to set a new industry standard within the next 35 years) considers what billionaires will next desire now that yachts with helipads and helicopters are becoming something of a superyacht standard. In their place Klyukin envisions a boat that will also serve as a launch pad for private jets that can take off vertically.

Private Jets’ Incredible Interiors

Washington DC-based photographer Nick Gleis has photographed over 800 private jets – ranging from the Lear 20 series to Boeing 747-400s – in a career that has lasted over 30 years. His vast collection of photographs gives a rare insight into the exclusive world and tastes of private jet owners; many of the aircraft photographed by Gleis are owned by royalty and heads of state from countries such as Japan, Saudi Arabia, China, Dubai, and Kazakhstan. Here he shares pictures of some of the most lavish private jets he has photographed and explains what his unusual career entails. www.bizjetphotos.com

Business Aviation’s Impact on Brazil

The Brazilian General Aviation Association (ABAG) hosts the Latin American Business Aviation Conference & Exhibition (LABACE) this week in São Paulo – closing later today. Amid ongoing economic struggles in Brazil, the focus has been on the impact of the economy on business aviation, and the government’s plans to alter aviation laws.

LABACE 2013

This year, 22 companies are featured in the static display at Congonhas International (CGH), and 62 companies featured in the exhibit hall. This is about the same size as last year’s show, mainly due to the ongoing economic crisis in Brazil. The show is still the largest business aviation event in Latin America, representing both Brazilian and foreign companies, manufacturers, and operators.

Representing Brazil

ABAG now has 74 members, all Brazilian, representing almost every segment of general aviation. Ahead of LABACE, the association stressed Brazil’s role in the aviation market. “We aim to reinforce General Aviation’s important role in the growth of Brazil in connecting all regions of the country, being present at more than 3,500 aerodromes,” the association said in a statement.

Economically, 2014 was a difficult year for Brazil, and the aviation sector has felt the effects. There was a surge in private aircraft traffic with the World Cup soccer, with about 1,000 private jets flying in for the event according to CNBC. But once the tournament was over, aviation and tourism activities retracted and didn’t start back up again.

At the same time, the Brazilian currency, the Real, weakened over 2014, reaching its lowest point against the dollar in 10 years, according to the Wall Street Journal. As the purchase of aircraft and parts are made in US dollars, the exchange rate heavily impacted Brazilian companies.
