The Gulfstream G200/280 was one of the first private jets in the Gulfstream series, jets that would become top competitors in the super-midsize category. The newly-formed Galaxy Aerospace Corp, a division of Israel Aviation Industries (IAI), became a major contender in the private jet category with the Gulfstream G200/280; this jet continues to compete today with the more recent G450 and G550. The Gulfstream G200/280 has everything that could be desired in a private jet: great range, cabin size, and speed. It’s the ideal jet for completing long-range missions rapidly and comfortably.
The cabin of the Gulfstream G200/280 can be configured to hold nineteen seats. The cabin itself is 24.4 feet long, 7.2 feet wide and 6.3 feet high.
It’s not every day that an early-generation private jet turns out to be such a success, but the Gulfstream G200/280 is a definite exception to that rule. Few other super midsize private jets can fly nine passengers 3,680 miles (3,200 nautical miles) at .80 Mach. For that matter, few first-generation private jets are so reliable.
The success of the Gulfstream G200/280 was unanticipated by the private jet industry, and continues to perform at high standards of excellence.
