Gulfstream intends to add a new component repair and overhaul facility in the Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area of Texas.
The 100,000ft² (9,290m²) facility will initially focus on wheels, brakes and landing gear and is expected to open in the first half of 2023. As the Gulfstream fleet continues to grow, the Dallas-Fort Worth component repair and overhaul facility will ultimately expand its repair and overhaul services to aircraft structures, avionics and other components.
“The Dallas-Fort Worth area is a prime location for our new component overhaul and repair facility,” said Derek Zimmerman, president, Gulfstream Customer Support. “Its close proximity to the Dallas Fort Worth International Airport adds a convenient location adjacent to one of the United States’ largest air cargo operations, allowing us to move these components and parts quickly and efficiently to customers around the country. This facility also complements our service centre at Fort Worth Alliance Airport and Gulfstream’s completions and Customer Support service operations at Dallas Love Field Airport to create even more accessibility and options for our customers.”
Also in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, Gulfstream Customer Support recently celebrated the official opening of an all-new service centre, a 162,000ft² (15,050m²) MRO facility at Fort Worth Alliance Airport. Completions for the Gulfstream G280 and Gulfstream G600 are conducted at the Dallas Love Field site, where Gulfstream Customer Support also provides service to operators.
In addition to the new Dallas-Fort Worth facility, Gulfstream Customer Support also conducts component repair and overhaul maintenance at its Savannah, Georgia; Appleton, Wisconsin; St. Louis, Missouri; Farnborough, UK; and Lincoln, California, facilities.
