Gulfstream delivers first G600 for outfitting
Gulfstream Aerospace has delivered the first G600 to its Dallas facility for outfitting. The Savannah-based OEM said it expanded completions operations to Dallas, Texas in June 2021 in response to growing demand.
Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream said: “Expanding G600 completions to Dallas is positioning us well for the future as we prepare for G700 entry into service, continued G500 and G600 in-service fleet growth and the interest we are seeing in the recently announced G400 and G800.”
Bringing G600 completions to the Dallas facility is part of Gulfstream’s wider plan for growth. The strategy includes Fort Worth Alliance Airport customer support and a sustainable service centre, set to open later this year.
Burns said: “Our interiors and the individuals who create and install them are the best in the business. In fact, we have received direct feedback from this newest G600 customer citing an ‘outstanding ’experience, and I’m excited for our customers to experience the unparalleled quality and excellence produced by the world-class team at our Dallas facility.”
The G600 can be configured in four living areas for up to 19 passengers or three living areas with a crew compartment or for up to 13 passengers. There is also a choice of a forward or aft galley configuration.
In addition to Dallas, Gulfstream outfits large-cabin interiors in Savannah, Georgia and Appleton, Wisconsin. Completions for the G280 are also performed at the Dallas facility.
