Gulfstream has done it again! Two airplanes within a week of each other! First the G650 now this!

On October 6, 2009, Gulfstream and IAI rolled out the brand new G250 business jet. The G250 will replace the G200 in the current Gulfstream line up. Most notable changes from the G200 will be the introduction of a T tail as well as a new wing. Looks like the engines are new as well.

Check out the details in the press release...

I just hope Gulfstream didn't miss an opportunity to make the fuselage taller.  Wink  banghead 


If it was said by us, then it must be true.

From the pictures, the fuselage appears adequate, particularly when compared to the aircraft with which it's competing. However, the gear seems pretty...low to the ground. I'm sure the design is sound, but it seems just a bit odd to me (aesthetically).



Fierce, Fabulous, and Flawless ;)

Having in-flight access to the baggage compartment is a big change from the two G-200 my former company had. It was a surprising issue for them when they got the planes. Didn't realize how often the senior execs needed something from the baggage compartment.

Is the market for Business Jets still booming, even in these turbulent times? But on the other hand it is good news for Gulfstream and everyone involved with the program.  Smile

Could the resolution on those pictures be any higher? LOL

Pretty good looking bird but the v-stab is right out of the Bombardier book and the low gear do indeed look a bit strange. Always prefer taller gear but they must have a good reason for the low clearance. Still I'm not a fan of the wing profiles on these midsize jets - much prefer the big wings on their larger sisters and the Citation X/XLS series.

The super mid-size segment is getting interesting with the Challenger 300, Falcon 2000DX and Hawker 4000. I think the G250 will definitely shake things up and be very popular.


My definition of cool ? Not trying so hard to be cool.

You have to take the long view when it comes to things like aircraft. When a program takes 6-8 year to roll out, you can't base it too much on the current status of the economy.
