Business jet maker Gulfstream is adding more hangar space adjacent to the service center, it is building and plans to open next year at Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport in Arizona.
The new hangar is located at the SkyBridge development at the airport and augments hangar space Gulfstream established at the facility in March.
Gulfstream Customer Support announced the new Mesa facility in November 2021 and broke ground last May.
The US$100 million 225,000 square feet (20,908 square meter) service center will expand Gulfstream’s maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) capabilities in the Western United States.
Derek Zimmerman, president of Gulfstream customer support said, “Since we announced the new Mesa facility last November, the response has been outstanding.
“The addition of this new hangar space doubles our current capacity and is part of our commitment to enhancing convenience for our customers. This expansion also allows us to continue to develop our workforce in Mesa and hire more technicians who will be well-known to customers when the new facility opens next year.”
With the additional hangar space, Gulfstream’s current footprint grows to 112,480 square feet (10,450 square meters) for routine inspections and maintenance for Gulfstream in-service aircraft as well as aircraft on ground (AOG) support for immediate customer needs.
