The super-midsize Gulfstream G280 has been cleared for operations at France airport of the Gulf of Saint-Tropez located in La Môle. The aircraft recently flew several takeoff and landing demonstrations at the short-field airport. To begin operations, G280 crews must complete French Civil Aviation Authority (DGAC) approved ground, simulator and aircraft training within six months of the first flight to La Môle. No aircraft modifications will be required for operational approval. 

In addition to the short-field performance required for La Môle, the G280 also offers proven steep-approach capability, opening access to some of the world’s most challenging airports and allowing customers to land even closer to the destination at hand. It is also certified to the Federal Aviation Administration’s stringent Stage 5 noise standards.

Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream, commented: “Given its prime location in the south of France, we are pleased to unlock this destination for G280 customers. The aircraft offers long-proven short-field performance, which is required for this airfield, as well as competitive range access when departing from La Môle to all of Europe and northern Africa.”
