In a move to increase large-cabin capacity, Gulfstream Aerospace is expanding G600 completion operations to its facility in Dallas, Texas.
As part of this expansion, Gulfstream’s director of Savannah (Georgia) completions, Melissa Grant, has been named vice president and general manager of the Dallas facility and will be relocating to facilitate the seamless transition of expertise and experience.
“We are seeing great demand for our next-generation aircraft, including the G600,” said Mark Burns, president at Gulfstream. “Thanks to our long-term strategic planning, the growth of Gulfstream Customer Support at Fort Worth Alliance Airport is allowing us to optimise completions at our Dallas Love Field facility and add the G600 to operations there. Our world-class interior outfitters and artisans in Dallas will deliver the Gulfstream quality and excellence that has made our award-winning interiors the best in the business.”
In addition to the Dallas expansion, Gulfstream large-cabin completions are conducted in Savannah and Appleton, Wisconsin. In February 2021, Gulfstream announced the expansion and renovation of the Appleton facility’s completion operations. Completions for the super-midsize G280 are also performed at the Dallas facility.
In February 2020, Gulfstream Customer Support announced the expansion of its Dallas-based service centre to Fort Worth Alliance Airport to help meet the needs of its growing customer fleet. The new, nearly 160,000ft² (14,864m²) maintenance, repair and overhaul facility in Fort Worth will include hangar space, back shops and employee and customer offices.
