The all-new Gulfstream G500 and the super-midsize G280 will be on display at the Aviation Africa Summit & Exhibition, from February 27th- 28th 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. “Rwanda has made great investments in business aviation, and we are proud to support those efforts with our presence and static display in Kigali,” said Mark Burns, President, Gulfstream. “Whether flying from country to country or intercontinentally, the G500 and G280 offer operators ideal options for this region.”

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 agile G280 can fly 3,600nm/6,667km at Mach 0.80, and can easily access smaller airports, reach high altitudes quickly and offers excellent takeoff and landing performance.
