Gulfstream has officially expanded its service center in Brunswick, Georgia, USA, with the opening of a newly constructed hangar. The hangar has been fully operational since May 29, 2015.
The hangar is nearly 110,000ft² and is located at Brunswick Golden Isles Airport, adjacent to a Gulfstream maintenance facility and completions center. The new building accommodates all Gulfstream aircraft models and more than doubles the site’s under-roof capacity from a mixture of seven large-cabin aircraft to as many as 16. The new hangar includes two overhead cranes and a tail dock.
The expansion has resulted in more than 60 new jobs at the site. Approximately 40 more positions are expected to be added in 2015. “This hangar is a tremendous asset to our operation here, helping us enhance the reliability and availability of our aircraft, continue to maintain a high level of safety and provide a state-of-the-art workplace for our employees,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream. “We’re thankful to the Georgia Department of Economic Development, the Glynn County commissioners, the Brunswick and Glynn County Development Authority, and the Glynn County Airport Commission for their essential support.”
Gulfstream Brunswick’s maintenance services include AOG support, airframe inspections, avionics installations and interior refurbishments. On-site technicians are certified to work on G550, G450, G280, GV, GIV and GIII aircraft. The site is also home to a completions facility for large-cabin Gulfstream aircraft. Gulfstream Brunswick is certified as a maintenance facility by the FAA and EASA, and is also authorized by Transport Canada.
