Gulfstream Appleton receives more maintenance approvals
Appleton gains Nigerian and Chinese maintenance approvals, facility now has seven approavls to perform maintenance and repairs
The Gulfstream Aerospace service
centre in Appleton, Wisconsin
recently gained approved maintenance organization (AMO) designations from China and Nigeria.
Gulfstream Appleton is the
third company-owned service center to earn AMO approval from the CAAC, joining
Gulfstream Savannah and Gulfstream Long Beach in California.
“Foreign authorisations are
important to our customers, particularly from countries such as China where our
fleet has grown from zero to more than 40 in about 11 years,” said Mark Burns,
president, Gulfstream product support. “Chinese operators who are in the United States for business or leisure now can
have their aircraft serviced on the East Coast, West Coast and Midwest. The more options we give operators, the better
we can serve them.”
The aircraft covered by Appleton’s
CAAC certificate are the Gulfstream G550, G450, GV, GV-SP, GIV, GIV-SP and
G200, along with the Hawker Beechcraft 800XP/850XP/900XP.
Appleton joins Gulfstream Savannah and Gulfstream Luton in England
as Nigerian-approved service centres.
The aircraft covered by Appleton’s NCAA certificate
include all Gulfstream models, the Bombardier Challenger 600 series and
5000/Global Express aircraft, the Dassault Falcon 50, 900 and 2000 series
models, and the Hawker Beechcraft 800 series, 850XP and 700 models.
