“"How many leaders actively seek out and encourage views alien and at odds with their own? All too few...Who in your organization serves as your Challenger In Chief? Interrogating the choices you are considering making? Making you consider the uncontemplated, the unimaginable and that which contradicts or refutes your position? And also challenging you?"”
Gulfstream May Launch G250 at NBAA/Orlando
Two weeks before Gulfstream Aerospace unveiled the G650 last March, a J.P. Morgan report predicted that the Savannah, Ga.-based aircraft manufacturer would launch two models this year. It now appears the forecast was right, as introduction of the G250 (a successor to the super-midsize G200) is reportedly nearing and could come at the National Business Aviation Association Convention (October 3 to 6, in Orlando, Fla.). Industry observers expect the G250 to address some of the G200's shortcomings, namely range and runway performance, by incorporating a redesigned wing leading edge, complete with a bleed-air anti-icing system and a new T-tail.
