Gulfstream Earns Brazil Certification for G280

Gulfstream announced today that its super-midsize G280 has received certification from Brazil’s civil aviation authority ANAC, paving the way for deliveries of the twinjet to begin to that country.

“We have delivered more than 50 G280s since the aircraft first went into service in November 2012,” said company president Larry Flynn. “Of all the countries in South America, this aircraft is particularly well suited for Brazil. Departing from São Paulo, the G280 can reach the entire continent without refueling and can fly to theU.S. and Europe with one stop.”

According to the airframer, a delivery of the 10-passenger G280, is pending in Brazil.

The twinjet has a range of 3,600 nm at Mach 0.80 and a max cruising altitude of 45,000 feet.

NATAs Safety 1st Demo Goes Live

An online, interactive demonstration of the National Air Transportation Association’s (NATA) new Safety 1st Digital Emergency Response System (ERS), created in partnership with AP3 Technologies, is now live. The Digital ERS was designed to assist companies in preparing for and responding to emergency situations. The demonstration guides viewers through the Digital ERS’s major features, which include automatic e-mail, text or phone notification to a company’s response team in the event of an emergency, as well as optional encryption of Digital ERS user data within the system. NATA’s new online tool uses a business’s existing or custom-developed emergency response plan. The ERS provides access to contact lists, emergency checklists and enhanced communications tools.
