Gulfstream increases service capacity at Dallas site
SAVANNAH, Ga., June 15, 2011 — Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. today announced the reopening of Hangar F, now dedicated to servicing mid-cabin aircraft, at its Dallas Love Field facility. The 62,000-square-foot hangar increases space by nearly 18 percent at the site, allowing Gulfstream to more efficiently outfit and service large-cabin and mid-cabin business jets.
“We now have an ideal situation for operators: hangars dedicated to specific aircraft models,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream Product Support. “Large-cabin and mid-cabin customers have their own specific facility, with parts inventory and office space that cater to their needs. We are also well-positioned for the future with the 2012 and 2011 deliveries of the Gulfstream G650 and G250, respectively.”
The hangar is dedicated to mid-cabin aircraft, the G200 and G250. Hangar F also has a warehouse stocked with parts for mid-cabin and non-Gulfstream aircraft.
Three of the other eight hangars at Gulfstream Dallas are dedicated to large-cabin aircraft, including the flagship G650. This expansion will create an additional four large-cabin slots over current capacity. Each of the remaining three hangars is used for final-phase manufacturing, paint and the maintenance of non-Gulfstream aircraft. The Dallas site’s total square footage is 411,890. Gulfstream’s Dallas maintenance facility is designated to service the G650 and G250 when they enter service.
