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. In addition to the short-field performance required for La Môle, the G280 also offers proven steep-approach capability, opening access to some of the world’s most challenging airports and allowing customers to land even closer to the destination at hand. It is also certified to the Federal Aviation Administration’s stringent Stage 5 noise standards.
