Gulfstream G250

    Gulfstream’s newest aircraft, which will replace the G200, is scheduled to start deliveries in 2011. Changes from the G200 are substantial, including an efficient new wing design and a larger cabin, upgraded with more windows and a roomy aft baggage compartment that is accessible during flight. A redesigned aft fuselage replaces the G200’s cruciform design with Gulfstream’s traditional T-tail. Efficient new Honeywell engines boost performance—showing improvements in climb, cruise altitude, range, fuel efficiency, and payload—while reducing noise and emissions.
