The first Gulfstream G250 super-midsize business jet had its Honeywell HTF7250G engines mounted on June 1 at Israel Aerospace Industries’ factory in Tel Aviv. The wing was mated to the fuselage on May 12, exactly one week after the first power-on test had taken place. The aircraft’s first flight is loosely pegged for “later this year,” while certification is scheduled for 2011.

Gulfstream Aerospace at the NBAA Convention last month took the wraps off the G250, a successor to the G200 (née Galaxy), marking the second new aircraft launch this year for the Savannah, Ga.-based manufacturer.
