Gulfstream Aerospace will showcase the clean-sheet, record-breaking Gulfstream G500 along with the class-leading, super-midsize Gulfstream G280 at the 2019 Aviation Africa Summit & Exhibition from Feb. 27- 28 in Kigali, Rwanda.

 

Gulfstream’s exhibition will be at the Radisson Blu Hotel & Convention Centre, and the aircraft will be on static display at Kigali International Airport.

“Gulfstream is committed to customers in sub-Saharan Africa and growing business aviation in the region,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream. “Rwanda has made great investments in business aviation, and we are proud to support those efforts with our presence and static display in Kigali. Whether flying from country to country or intercontinentally, the G500 and G280 offer operators ideal options for this region.”

The award-winning G500 can fly 5,200 nautical miles/9,630 kilometers at its long-range cruise speed of Mach 0.85 and can easily connect Kigali to London at Mach 0.90 or Kigali to Singapore at Mach 0.87. When it entered service in September 2018, the G500 had already achieved 22 city-pair records around the world and currently holds a total of 32 city-pair records. The G500 that will be on display at Aviation Africa is in service with Qatar Airways’ Qatar Executive fleet.

The high-performing and agile G280 can fly 3,600 nm/6,667 km at Mach 0.80, and can travel nonstop from Kigali to Dubai, United Arab Emirates, at Mach 0.84 or Kigali to Bangalore, India, at Mach 0.80. The aircraft can easily access smaller airports, reach high altitudes quickly and offers excellent takeoff and landing performance.
