and the G200 is so great it has sold XXX in how many years? and is going by by...nuff said. Nice sales pitch
There were 223 G200 deliveries through 31 January 2009. The G200 won't be going "Bye-Bye" until last quarter 2011 when G250 deliveries begin.
...and you're right, the G250 will be an outstanding growth derivative of the G200. It has an all-new, advanced transonic wing design that has been optimized for high-speed cruise and improved takeoff performance. At maximum takeoff weight, the G250 can take off from a 5,000-foot runway. Its 3,400-nautical-mile range means the G250 can fly nonstop from New York to London.
The G250 will have a Rockwell-Collins Pro Line Fusion Planeview 250 cockpit and "Green" 7,445 pound/thrust Honeywell HTF7250G engines. The jet will also feature the largest-in-class cabin with 19 windows and a two-windowed vacuum toilet equipped lavatory.
De-icing/anti-icing will be accomplished with a hot wing and stopping will be augmented by auto-brakes. I think it will be a great airplane.
I agree, the 250 will be nice airplane and better than the CL30. Now back to the sales pitch, how long did it take to sell 223 G200 ??
I can't wait to see a G-250...it will be everything the 300 isn't and based on the information on the aircraft today, I would choose it over the 300 if we where making that decision today.
