The Federal Aviation Administration has confirmed that the super-midsize Gulfstream G280 meets the certifying organization’s recently intensified noise standards. Known as Stage 5, the standard lowers the noise limit for subsonic aircraft. The G280’s noise emissions have always fallen below the levels now classified as Stage 5. 

“The Gulfstream team continues its commitment to the future of the G280 program, ensuring adherence to the most stringent standards, whether for safety, performance or noise emissions,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream. “Aircraft noise abatement goals are vital to ensuring the livelihood of the aviation and aerospace industries and demonstrating our efforts to be good neighbors to those who live or work near airfields, airports or flight paths.”

Official approval to the Stage 5 noise standard ensures continued operational flexibility at noise-sensitive airports and those with time-of-day entry restrictions.

This update is reflected in the G280’s aircraft flight manual, with new noise data sheets being issued to operators.
