Gulfstream Aerospace has opened its second company-owned maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) facility in Southern California, one of the world’s busiest corridors for Gulfstream business jets.
The new service center at Van Nuys Airport has customer resources that include sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) and sizeable ramp space.
“We are excited and proud to add Gulfstream Van Nuys to our rapidly growing worldwide service center network,” said Derek Zimmerman, president at Gulfstream Customer Support. “Southern California, especially Los Angeles County, is a prime location for Gulfstream business jets, and with maintenance facilities in both Van Nuys and Long Beach, we have the resources to assist customers based in and transitioning through the area faster and more efficiently.
“This expansion ensures our new aircraft, the Gulfstream G500 and G600, and the rest of our growing fleet continue to have the best service and support in business aviation. We’re grateful to our parent company, General Dynamics, and to Los Angeles World Airports for their critical support.”
There are more than 130 Gulfstream aircraft based at Van Nuys Airport, the most active business aviation airport in California. More than 220 Gulfstream aircraft are based in Southern California.
The new facility can accommodate four Gulfstream G650ER or G650 aircraft and is the company’s third maintenance facility opening in the past five months. In August and September 2019, Gulfstream opened service center expansions in Appleton, Wisconsin, and Savannah, respectively.
In 2020, Gulfstream will begin operations at newly built service centers in Palm Beach, Florida, and Farnborough, England.
