Last month the FAA and the European Aviation Safety Agency approved the Gulfstream G150 for a steep-approach angle of up to six degrees versus the normal approach angles of 3.5 degrees or less. Several airports worldwide–including London City Airport–require steep-approach certification to land at their facilities due to terrain, obstacles or local noise ordinances.
