Gulfstream Lincoln named as Howell Instruments authorised service station


Californian facility is the only one of its kind in United States.

The Gulfstream Aerospace facility in Lincoln, California has been named the first US based authorised service station for Howell Instruments.

Howell, located in Fort Worth, Texas, engineers, manufactures and repairs instrumentation, engine monitoring systems and ground support equipment for civilian and military aircraft.

“This authorisation is an indication of Howell’s confidence in the staff and resources we have at Gulfstream Lincoln, our service center dedicated solely to component repair and overhaul,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream Product Support.  “There are approximately 900 GIVs, GIIIs and GIIs flying worldwide, and most of them have instrumentation made by Howell.  Howell products are also on aircraft built by other manufacturers. Our ability to repair Howell products helps keep these aircraft safe and reliable.”

Shep Brown, chief executive officer of Howell said “A strategic alliance with Gulfstream presents an exciting opportunity to combine our engine instrumentation expertise with an industry leader in aircraft manufacturing. It’s a powerful step toward expanding customer support within the aviation community and reinforces our commitment to improved safety and performance.”

The Lincoln facility is located approximately 30 miles northeast of Sacramento, California.
