Gulfstream Aerospace has today (August 24th) opened a new service centre at Palm Beach International Airport, Florida. The facility, which is being shared with Jet Aviation, will have a hangar for each company and shared office space.

“Gulfstream has had a presence in Palm Beach for almost 20 years with the capability to accommodate all Gulfstream models,” said Derek Zimmerman, President, Gulfstream Customer Support. “We are excited to open a state-of-the-art facility that will offer world-class service to a greater number of Gulfstream aircraft simultaneously. The Palm Beach service centre is well positioned to support customers in domestic and international markets, including South America.”

The joint facility is nearly 161,000 square feet/14,960 square meters, with over 104,000 sq ft/9,600 sq m dedicated to Gulfstream. The facility can accommodate up to seven Gulfstream G650ER or G650 aircraft.

The Gulfstream Palm Beach facility can perform major inspections; structural modifications and repairs; and avionics installations and system upgrades. It is a certified FAA and EASA repair station and has maintenance approvals from Argentina, Aruba, the Bahamas, Bermuda, Brazil, Burundi, Canada, the Cayman Islands, the Isle of Man, Mexico, Peru, San Marino and Venezuela.

Palm Beach is one of many new service centres in the Gulfstream customer support network. In 2019, Gulfstream opened a facility in Van Nuys, California, and expanded in Appleton, Wisconsin, and Savannah. The company also recently began operations at a newly built service centre in Farnborough, England.

“These facilities are designed and equipped to meet the business-aviation needs of our global customer base,” said David Best, SVP Regional Operations, America. “The additional space and hangarage can accommodate both larger aircraft and increasing demand. We continue to grow our facilities to match our customer needs and are pleased to have strong interest in the new hangar.”

Jet Aviation President, David Paddock, adds, “This investment is the 5th new hangar we’ve opened in recent years and underscores our commitment to exceeding customer expectations by further strengthening our global facility network. I would like to take this opportunity to thank our parent company, General Dynamics, for their ongoing support of our business, particularly during these uncertain times.”
