Gulfstream has opened a new company-owned service centre at Palm Beach International airport. The facility, shared with Jet Aviation, will have a hangar for each company and shared office space.

“Gulfstream has had a presence in Palm Beach for almost 20 years with the capability to accommodate all models,” explains president of customer support Derek Zimmerman. “We are excited to open a facility that will offer world-class service to a greater number of Gulfstream aircraft simultaneously. The Palm Beach service centre is well-positioned to support customers in domestic and international markets, including South America.”

The all-new joint facility is nearly 161,000 sq ft in size, with over 104,000 sq ft dedicated to Gulfstream. The air-conditioned facility can accommodate up to seven Gulfstream G650ER or G650 aircraft. Jet Aviation occupies the remaining 56,700 sq ft.

The Gulfstream Palm Beach facility offers a broad range of services, including major inspections; structural modifications and repairs; and major avionics installations and system upgrades. It is a certified U.S. Federal Aviation Administration and European Union Aviation Safety Agency repair station and has maintenance approvals from Argentina, Aruba, the Bahamas, Bermuda, Brazil, Burundi, Canada, the Cayman Islands, the Isle of Man, Mexico, Peru, San Marino and Venezuela.

Palm Beach is one of many new service centres in the Gulfstream customer support network. In 2019, Gulfstream opened a facility in Van Nuys, California, and expanded in Appleton, Wisconsin, and Savannah, Georgia. Gulfstream also recently began operations at a newly built service centre in Farnborough, U.K.

Jet Aviation president David Paddock comments: “This investment is the fifth new hangar we've opened in recent years and underscores our commitment to exceeding customer expectations by further strengthening our global facility network. I would like to take this opportunity to thank our parent company, General Dynamics, for its ongoing support of our business, particularly during these uncertain times.”

In related news, Jet Aviation is currently constructing a new FBO and hangar terminal in Scottsdale, Arizona, slated for completion in early 2021, while working to replace its storm-damaged hangar in Houston, Texas.
