Gulfstream Expands Customer Support in Asia

Summer in Savannah

Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation has announced the addition of three authorized warranty facilities in China to its worldwide Customer Support network. Deer Jet in Beijing, Business Aviation Asia Limited in Shenzhen and ExecuJet Haite Aviation Services China in Tianjin are now authorized by Gulfstream to provide warranty repairs and maintenance services.

The new facilities join Gulfstream Customer Support’s other authorized warranty facilities in the region, including Metrojet Limited in Hong Kong and Shanghai Hawker Pacific in Shanghai. Regional factory authorized service centers include Jet Aviation locations in Hong Kong and Singapore.

“The addition of these authorized warranty facilities increases access to warranty service, maintenance and parts for Gulfstream customers based in and traveling throughout the region,” said Derek Zimmerman, president, Gulfstream Customer Support. “Shenzhen, Beijing and Tianjin are strategic business aviation hubs and we are pleased to offer our customers these new options for service.”

The three new authorized warranty facilities will replace Gulfstream service operations at Beijing Capital Airport (PEK).

2023’s third-quarter has seen a great deal of action down Savannah way. On 17 July, Gulfstream announced its second G800 flight-test aircraft had successfully ventured aloft.

The G800 departed the company’s home digs on Georgia’s Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport (SAV) at 09:27 EDT on the morning of Saturday, 15 July. During the three-hour, 26-minute test-flight, the aircraft attained a top-speed of Mach 0.935 (623.4-knots).

Gulfstream president Mark Burns set forth: “Gulfstream’s flight-test team continues to make advanced strides forward for our company. The G800 will bring the industry’s longest range to customers around the world, and we are seeing strong demand for this capability alongside the cabin comfort and quality Gulfstream is known for.”

The second G800 flight test aircraft is dedicated to the vetting of environmental control systems, avionics, and flight controls. The jet builds on the more than 1,600 test points already accomplished by the first G800 flight-test aircraft.

Mr. Burns continued: “Thanks to the design philosophy behind our next-generation fleet, the G800 is also benefiting from the excellent progress we continue to make in the Gulfstream G700 flight test program. This commonality helps us enhance efficiency and reliability for our customers, who are already seeing firsthand how well these aircraft perform.”
