NBAA_header.jpg Gulfstream is set to announce its all-new clean sheet design for the G250 aircraft. The new super-midsize jet will replace the G200 in the Gulfstream product line. The G250 will feature the same cross-section as the G200, will be powered by twin Honeywell HTF7500-series turbofans and feature a scaled variant of the G550 wing.

The press conference is scheduled to begin at 10:00 AM ET.
