Gulfstream Aerospace’s service center in Beijing, China, has received Part 145 approval from the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). The authorization gives the Gulfstream Beijing service center technicians the authority to perform base and line maintenance and provide aircraft-on-ground support for most US-registered Gulfstream aircraft. Gulfstream Beijing is a joint venture between Gulfstream and Hainan Airlines Group.
“More and more of our US operators are based in or traveling to China and this certification enables them to take advantage of the comprehensive support provided by our team at Gulfstream Beijing,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream Product Support.
Gulfstream Beijing opened in November 2012 at Beijing Capital International Airport (BCIA). It includes more than 70,000ft² of hangar, ramp and office space. Along with its FAA certification, Gulfstream Beijing holds maintenance approvals from the aviation authorities of China, Hong Kong and Macau. The approvals cover Gulfstream G550, G450, G280, G200 and GV aircraft.
