Gulfstream adds FAST vehicle at Luton
Gulfstream Aerospace announces that it has increased its support of Gulfstream operators in Europe with the addition of a custom-outfitted Field and Airborne Support Team (FAST) vehicle.
Gulfstream Aerospace has increased its support to operators of Gulfstream business jets in Europe, by adding a custom-outfitted Field and Airborne Support Team (FAST) vehicle at London Luton Airport.
The Iveco cargo van is based at Gulfstream’s Luton facility and is manned by personnel from the site.
Mark Burns, president of Gulfstream product support, says: “This FAST vehicle is outfitted with the tools and storage that enable our Luton technicians to become an even more valuable resource for customers at airports throughout the UK and Europe.”
“The ability to travel to an aircraft’s location typically results in faster return to service for an operator and financial savings because there’s no need for relocation expenses,” adds Burns.
Luton’s FAST van, which is already being used to support customers, will make its official debut 12 July at the TAG Airshow Challenge bicycle race, serving as the Gulfstream team’s support vehicle.
The charity cycle race is a 250 mile event from Paris-Le Bourget to Farnborough in support of the UK charity fly2help.
