Description: Gulfstream GV, which was introduced in 1997, is the successor to GIV and GIV-SP family of business jet introduced by Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation in 1985 and 1993 respectively. Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation is a wholly owned subsidiary of General Dynamics. Twin-engine Gulfstream V was conceived to serve as an ultra-long-range business jet featuring the most sophisticated technology. In 2000 Gulfstream announced a further version with extended range called GV-SP which entered service in 2003 under G550 designation. G500 aircraft was introduced in 2004 as the follow-on to GV aircraft.

In 2001 Galaxy Aerospace Company was acquired by General Dynamics which added Galaxy Aerospace's Galaxy and Astra SPX business jets to the Gulfstream portfolio. Galaxy was re-designated as G200 and Astra SPX as G100. In 2002 Gulfstream launched G150 business jet to fill the gap between G100 and G200 capabilities. In 2003 Gulfstream announced that it was upgrading G300 and G400 business jets developed under GIV by adding technologies developed for GV and a new cockpit. The upgraded aircraft were re-designated G350 and G450 entering into service during 2005.

As of March 2008, Gulfstream GV family consists of eight models available at the production line with a common high speed performance and differences in terms of cabin and aircraft range. G100 offers mid-cabin; G150 wide-cabin; G200 and G350 large-cabin and mid-range; G450 large-cabin and long-range; G500 and G550 large-cabin and ultra-long-range; and G650 ultra large cabin and ultra long range corporate jet. They can cover routes ranging from 2,700 to more than 7,000 nautical miles, cruising at speeds between 0.75 and 0.9 Mach, and carrying between four and up to 18 passengers.

The Gulfstream G250 is a super mid-size business jet capable of traveling 3,400 nautical miles (6,300 km) at 0.80 Mach. Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation introduced the G250 on October 5, 2005. First flight is planned for the second half of 2009. Certification and first customer delivery are expected in 2011. Initial phase manufacturing for the G250 will be at Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) near the Ben Gurion International Airport in Israel. Final phase manufacturing will take place at the Gulfstream Center of Excellence completion facility for mid-cabin aircraft in Dallas.

The G250 jet is powered by two Honeywell HTF7250G fuel-efficient engines providing 7,445 pounds of thrust each and enabling a maximum operating speed of 0.85 Mach. With an initial cruise altitude of 41,000 feet, the G250 can climb to a maximum altitude of 45,000 feet, where it can avoid air-traffic congestion and adverse weather. The aircraft highlights an all-new, advanced transonic Gulfstream wing, improved cabin comfort - with 17 percent to 35 percent more floor area than any other super mid-size business jet - and the PlaneView 250 cockpit from Rockwell Collins.

On July 18, 2011, Gulfstream announced that the super midsized G250 jet was receiving the new G280 designation.
