Work on the development of the twin-engine jet aircraft such as the administrative Grob G180 SPn began in 2002 year on the initiative of «Grob Aircraft» company. As the base material used to create the model aircraft composite material were obtained which to a certain extent reduced the cost of the process of creating an aircraft design and aircraft easier make it more durable.

The first tests of the aircraft Grob G180 SPn have failed - during a test flight there was a technical failure, as a consequence, the aircraft was wrecked, but later, the plane underwent several important changes, which is why testing of this model has been very successful.

Today, German engineers created 4 aircraft, including a prototype crashed in 2006 year, thus, the release of the aircraft was originally frozen, however, since 2009 years of work in this area were again carried out, which was an important step for the further production of aircraft devices Grob G180 SPn, including in the medium series production for export to other countries and states.

The Grob G180 SPn aircraft is designed to receive on board up to 10 people, including one pilot of the aircraft. Depending on the requirements of the direct customer, the cabin of the aircraft can be made in several different trim levels and styles, including the ability to reduce the number of seats and the installation of additional equipment on board. The maximum distance to which the airplane can make flights is 3425 kilometers, which fully meets the requirements, however, experts point to the fact that the cost of the aircraft remains very high, which in turn may be the reason for the low demand for the Grob G180 SPn.

Two turbofan aircraft engines Williams FJ44-3A used in the aircraft as a power plant, are capable of developing thrust in 12,45 kN each, which in turn provides a high speed of movement, of the order of 753 km / h, and a good carrying capacity. According to some information, with the beginning of the new production cycle, German aircraft manufacturers intend to install more productive turbofan engines capable of developing more power and at the same time being more reliable and simpler in terms of their technical and service maintenance.
