Gulfstream Begins Delivering G280 Aircraft To Customers

A U.S.-Based Manufacturer Receives First Fully Outfitted Super Mid-Sized Aircraft

SAVANNAH, Ga., Nov. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. announced today that it has delivered its first super mid-sized G280 aircraft. The fully outfitted business jet went to a U.S.-based manufacturer with a worldwide presence spanning 190 countries.

The best-in-class G280 aircraft earned type certificates from the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration and the Civil Aviation Authority of Israel on Aug. 30.

"Gulfstream is excited to deliver this aircraft to a dedicated customer who has worked so closely with us on the G280 program," said Scott Neal, senior vice president, Sales and Marketing, Gulfstream. "In preparation for our first deliveries of this aircraft, we took a G280 to several fixed base operators around the United States, so their employees could familiarize themselves with the handling requirements for the G280. That was just one of several efforts intended to ensure a smooth entry-into-service for this aircraft.

"This is an illustrious occasion that signifies the beginning of full-scale G280 manufacturing.  We congratulate the G280 design and build teams, our suppliers and our customers for their tremendous contributions to the G280 program. It won't be long before we're seeing the G280 landing and taking off at airports around the world." 

The G280, a joint effort between Gulfstream and Israel Aerospace Industries, offers the most comfortable cabin and the longest range at the fastest speed in its class.  With its fuel-efficient Honeywell HTF250G engines, the aircraft has a range of 3,600 nautical miles (6,667 km) at Mach 0.80. This makes it the only super mid-sized aircraft that can reliably fly nonstop between London and New York.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Given the popularity of the containers, further investment in the telco/cable industry is needed to transition existing VM-based solutions to containerized cloud native deployments. The networking architecture of the solution isolates the network traffic into different network planes (e.g., management, control, and media). This naturally makes support for multiple interfaces in container orchestration engines an indispensable requirement.
