The first development aircraft Gulfstream G280 began leading American aviation engineer in 2008 year, and the original name of the aircraft was a Gulfstream G250, however, a year later, business jet has made its first flight, and almost immediately went into mass production.

Designing aircraft Gulfstream G280 made on the basis of 200Model of the same family, however, the aircraft received a number of changes, in particular, the wing received a new geometry that provides the best aerodynamic performance, a new power plant, as well as an improved front end, including also the cockpit. Among other things, the changes also touched on the interior design of the passenger compartment, which has now become more spacious and comfortable, which was especially useful for long flights. If necessary, the salon can be trimmed in one of the three main styles of design, and in addition, the customer can independently offer the creation of an exclusive cabin design for the aircraft.

The flight characteristics of the Gulfstream G280 aircraft also changed compared to the 200 model, in particular, the aircraft can cover longer distances (up to 6660 kilometers), while the maximum number of passengers that can stay on board the aircraft was reduced to 10 people.

As the power plant on the plane Gulfstream G280 uses two turbofan aircraft engine Honeywell HTF7250G, each of which provides aircraft thrust 33 kN, however, with all this, the speed of flight of the aircraft has not changed - the maximum is 900 km \ h and cruising - 850 km \ h.

Due to the fact that the aircraft uses modern electronics and avionics, flights to the Gulfstream G280 are considered fairly safe, with all this, the pilots note the simplicity and ease of control of the aircraft, and the good maneuverability of the aircraft is felt even at high flight speeds.

Between 2009 the end of 2014 years, based on official data, around the world were produced 98 airplanes of this model, with the popularity of the aircraft continues to grow, allowing in turn compete this model versions of aircraft of this type to other aircraft manufacturers in Specifically, Bombardier, Dassault Aviation and Embraer.

Currently, in most cases airplanes are operated by private owners, however, it is noted that air carriers offering passenger services are actively interested in this aircraft.
