 - June 29, 2009, 11:22 AM

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.
