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.

It is also certified to the Federal Aviation Administration’s stringent Stage 5 noise standards.
