Five Company Pilots Stationed In Hong Kong Assist Gulfstream Operators Throughout Asia-Pacific Region
Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. has established a satellite flight department in Hong Kong to support Gulfstream operators in Asia. The office is staffed by five pilots: three large-cabin demonstration pilots, one mid-cabin demonstration pilot and a chief pilot type-rated in both large- and mid-cabin aircraft. The pilots work closely with customers and their local aircraft management companies to facilitate the transfer of Gulfstream aircraft into the region. Additionally, they assist in the transit of aircraft to and from the United States, provide entry-into-service flying for customers and support regional air shows.
“The move reflects Gulfstream’s continued commitment to assisting customers around the world,” said Scott Neal, senior vice president, Sales and Marketing, Gulfstream. “Our operators in Asia can leverage the collective experience of our pilots, who will work with their aircraft management company to ensure their aircraft delivery and entry-into-service are as smooth as possible.”
The five-person department is located in Gulfstream’s Hong Kong Product Support office at the modern Citygate complex in the Tung Chung section of Hong Kong, near Hong Kong International Airport. “We selected Hong Kong because of its central location, providing us access to India, Australia, New Zealand and Indonesia,” Neal said. “Putting a flight department there broadens our availability to customers.”
Nearly 200 Gulfstream business jets are registered in the Asia-Pacific region.
