“PlaneParts has been well-received by our
operators since we launched the program last year at NBAA in Atlanta,” said Mark Burns, president,
Gulfstream Product Support.  “Particularly in these economic times,
controlling costs is critical for any company, big or small.  PlaneParts
gives our operators a tool to accurately forecast the cost of component
replacements for their aircraft.  Our operators benefit from single-source
component ordering and can take advantage of our worldwide product support
network, which includes 24/7 AOG assistance.”

The PlaneParts program was officially
launched in October 2010.
