When the economic downturn of 2007 struck, there were several bizjet segments that took a hit. Surprisingly, the largest cabin jets seemed not only immune to the crisis but to thrive on the turmoil. The sales of most light jets got knocked for a loop, but it was the midsize segment that spun out of control. The result was savvy bizjet makers going upscale with their midsize ambitions. Gulfstream's G280 is a super midsize, though you might want to add a few more "supers" to it, and Dassault's Falcon 2000EX, Bombardier's Challenger 300 and even Cessna's own Sovereign+ went upscale in terms of size, range or both in an attempt to seek out buyers who wanted more.
