GULFSTREAM G280 SURPASSES 100,000 FLIGHT HOURS

SAVANNAH, Georgia, August 23, 2017 — Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. today announced that its worldwide fleet of G280 aircraft recently eclipsed 100,000 flight hours, a milestone achieved less than five years after the first model entered service.



“The G280 continues to reinforce its status as the premier super mid-size aircraft in business aviation,” said Dan Nale, senior vice president, Programs, Engineering and Test, Gulfstream. “It has a class-leading combination of range, fuel efficiency and field performance and the technology typically found on a larger business jet.



“The G280 also offers customers the ability to fly in and out of challenging airports such as London City, Lugano and Samedan/St. Moritz in Europe. This aircraft continues to grow in popularity, and our customers will continue to benefit from its performance and features for years to come.”



Since entering service in November 2012, the G280 has been able to continuously improve its dispatch reliability to a market segment-leading level. Through July 2017, the fleet of more than 115 aircraft has achieved a dispatch reliability rate of 99.90 percent.



With a range of 3,600 nautical miles/6,667 kilometers at Mach 0.80, the G280 can fly eight hours nonstop, connecting New York with Paris, Chicago with London, or London with Dubai. Its list of city-pair speed records includes a 7-hour, 40-minute flight from Paris to New York.



Two powerful Honeywell HTF7250G engines propel the G280 to an initial cruise altitude of 43,000 feet/13,106 meters in approximately 20 minutes and feature reduced emissions, longer maintenance intervals and decreased noise levels.

News and Updates - Launching a More Agile and Efficient FAA Flight Standards Service

August 22  The Federal Aviation Administrations Flight Standards Service (AFS) plays a vital role in making the U.S. aviation system the worlds safest. But even the best can get better.

On August 20, AFS made organizational adjustments that will enable it to operate with greater accountability, better use of resources, and more readiness to adapt to change. The FAA expects the Flight Standards restructuring to yield benefits to both the agency and the U.S. aviation community. It will strengthen the organizations ability to keep pace with changes in the aviation industry, increase the Services ability to derive maximum benefit from the fixed resources allocated to the agency, and make sure AFS employees develop and interpret regulations and policy consistently across the organization.

To enhance the AFS safety culture, interdependence, critical thinking, and consistency will now be embedded in every AFS employee's work requirements. To facilitate a more agile, efficient, and consistent organization, the service is reorganizing from today's structure, see current org chart, to one based on function, see new org chart.

The FAA issued an Information for Operators bulletin (InFO) on July 26 to provide industry with information to help prepare for the AFS reorganization. The agency has also established a web page to give the aerospace community more detail on the AFS changes.

General Discussion / Re: Accountability.
« Last post by Slick Goodlin on Today at 06:52:30 AM »

[/size]if the pilots were in command of the aircraft why are they not more accountable?[/size]

The folks in charge have a very fine line to walk here.  The current safety culture at most airlines relies heavily on self-reporting with the aim of constant incremental improvement.  It can't work without crews submitting incident reports for every little thing and those reports won't flow freely unless the system is demonstrably non-punitive.  As such, a very high standard of 'innocent until proven guilty' has to be shown and even if guilty, management has to come up with a solution that doesn't make it look like pilots submitting incident reports are just ratting on themselves.


if they did not see anything how in hell did they claim it did not look right?

Your guess is as good as mine on that one.  Could be a case of all the stars aligning and a genuine screw up, could be a scramble to cover their own butts in the aftermath (it must suck to bugger something up and make the international news), but as with most things I suspect the real answer is somewhere in the middle.  I'll put money on that answer never being public knowledge though.
