What do you guys think of the G650? She is the fastest business jet in the world, in fact the fastest civilian jet period. This plane has set numerous city-pair records already recently set the latest Australia to Abu Dhabi. What say you all?

General Dynamics' aerospace division recorded a hike in its first-quarter revenues to $1.78 billion. The figures mark a $155 million hike on the previous year, based on a strong performance by Gulfstream. In the first three months of the year, the airframer delivered 30 'green' jets -25 large-cabin G450s, G550s and G650s and five midsize G150/G280s-, compared with 26 large-cabin and two midsize business jets a year ago. So basically a bit of an improvement on the same period last year.

GULFSTREAM INCREASES PRESENCE IN NORTHEAST U.S. WITH OPENING OF ADDITIONAL WESTFIELD, MASS., HANGAR

Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. today announced it has opened an additional hangar at its service center at Barnes Regional Airport in Westfield, Mass. The facility serves the Northeast region of the United States, the busiest corridor for Gulfstream business jets in the world. Gulfstream Westfield’s new 125,000-square-foot hangar complements the adjacent 85,000-square-foot facilities. It accommodates the new ultra-large-cabin Gulfstream G650 and all other Gulfstream aircraft, and nearly doubles the site’s under-roof capacity from a mixture of 12 large-cabin and mid-cabin aircraft to approximately 22. The expansion, which was announced in October 2011, has resulted in more than 60 new product support-related jobs at the site. Approximately 40 more positions are expected to be added this year.

“This is a wonderful day for Westfield, Western Massachusetts and Gulfstream,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream Product Support. “We are very excited about this expansion, which comes on the heels of the entry-into-service of our two new aircraft, the G650 and G280. We built this hangar and added employees to the team to help ensure that those aircraft and the rest of our growing fleet are well supported. We’re grateful to the city of Westfield and the commonwealth of Massachusetts, including the Executive Office of Housing and Economic Development and the Department of Transportation, for their critical support. “Gulfstream Westfield continually gets high marks from customers, and these added resources will only enhance that world-class service and support.”

Gulfstream announced the hangar opening in front of an audience made up of the site’s 200 employees along with local and state dignitaries, including Richard A. Davey, secretary and chief executive officer of the Massachusetts Department of Transportation, and U.S. Congressman Richard Neal. Gulfstream Westfield, located approximately 97 miles from Boston and 130 miles from the New York metro area, offers a full range of services, including aircraft-on-ground (AOG) support, airframe inspections, avionics installations and interior refurbishments. On-site technicians are certified to work on large- and mid-cabin Gulfstream aircraft along with Hawker, Dassault Falcon and Bombardier Challenger business jets. Approximately 500 of these aircraft, including more than 200 Gulfstream jets, are based within 150 miles of the facility.

Westfield’s new hangar includes two overhead cranes and a tail dock. It was built with several sustainable and green design features, including building materials with recycled content, water-efficient lavatories and showers, and energy-efficient lighting. Gulfstream Westfield is certified by the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration, European Aviation Safety Agency and also has maintenance approvals from the civil aviation authorities in Aruba, Bermuda and the Cayman Islands. In 2012, Westfield employees serviced 811 aircraft, which included off-site maintenance support for aircraft located as far away as Newfoundland, Canada.

GULFSTREAM RELEASES UPDATE TO PLANEBOOK IPAD APP

Pilots And Flight Crew Use Program To Operate Gulfstream Aircraft
More Safely And Effectively

SAVANNAH, Ga., May 15, 2013 — Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. recently released an update to the company’s PlaneBook™ iPad application, an electronic document management system that has helped pilots and flight crews operate Gulfstream aircraft more safely and effectively since 2011. “Our customers enjoy the convenience of using our operating manuals on the iPad and receiving automatic updates,” said Bill Colleran, director, Technical Publications, Gulfstream. “This update incorporates a number of improvements that came from their feedback, including landscape and portrait orientations, AirPrint compatibility and search features. We think our customers will be pleased with the result.”

Other new features include a document selector, history window, bookmark navigator, manual reorder feature, highly visible battery percentage indicator, better aircraft subscription organization and an improved help file. The PlaneBook app provides pilots easy and immediate access to critical flight information and aircraft-specific documents, such as the Airplane Flight Manual, Operating Manual, Pilot’s Checklist and the Quick Reference Handbook (QRH). The electronic version of the QRH, which includes emergency flight procedures, serves as the master document that links to all other documents for easy cross-referencing.

PlaneBook also allows pilots to create and add their own content and tailor the app to their particular flying habits or preferences. In addition, since documents and manuals are downloaded straight to the iPad, users will have offline access to all of their important information. A “History” feature gives pilots even quicker access to the documents they frequently use, and instructional videos for each of Gulfstream’s aircraft, as well as latest news from the company, are available through the app. The Gulfstream PlaneBook app is now available from the App Store on iPad or at www.planebookapp.com. Current users will notice an update notification in the “App Store” app on their iPad devices, and are encouraged to download the new version immediately. Customers can send questions or comments at any time to planebook.support@gulfstream.com.

Gulfstream support network grows in europe

Quote:
gulfstream aerospace corp. Continues to add resources to its product support network worldwide, including in europe, home to more than 180 gulfstream operators. Since moving into a new, larger hangar at london luton airport in september 2011, the gulfstream luton service center has grown to approximately 190 employees and continues to support gulfstream operators on-site, across the united kingdom and europe, and as far as asia. Gulfstream has also increased its spare parts and materials inventory in the region to $125 million. The inventory covers all models of gulfstream aircraft, including the new ultra-long-range, ultra-large-cabin g650 and the super mid-size g280. The initial deliveries for both aircraft include european customers.

Another key element of gulfstream’s customer service in europe is the mobile repair team unit, which is part of its field and airborne support teams (fast). In may 2013, gulfstream added a sixth member to this select group of maintenance engineers. “we’re committed to our operators in europe, whether they’re based there or traveling through the continent on the way to the middle east, africa or asia,” said mark burns, president, gulfstream product support. “we continue to invest in enhancing our depth and breadth of services in europe and continually seek new ways to better support customers.”

gulfstream luton, located 30 miles north of london, is a certified federal aviation administration (faa), european aviation safety agency (easa) part 145 repair station and easa part 21 design organization, which includes avionics and interiors installation and repair capability. The facility also holds 11 other foreign authority approvals. Gulfstream luton technicians service more than 100 aircraft monthly at their facility off-site. In the past year, luton personnel have assisted customers in aircraft-on-ground situations as far away as india and nigeria. Gulfstream luton also offers easa-authorized continued airworthiness management organization (camo) services. The camo department currently manages 15 aircraft and has capacity to handle additional aircraft.

Luton’s 75,000-square-foot hangar can accommodate 10 to 12 aircraft depending on the mix of large-cabin and mid-cabin models. It sits adjacent to a 10,000-square-foot parts warehouse, which opened in may 2011. Most of gulfstream’s europe-based parts and materials – nearly $80 million – are located in madrid at corjet maintenance’s warehouse at barajas airport. Gulfstream’s luton and madrid facilities can ship parts anywhere in europe or the middle east within 24 hours and offer a 24-hour call-in number for customers who need parts support. Gulfstream also has approximately $17 million in parts positioned at jet aviation in basel.

Gulfstream’s fast maintenance engineers are based in switzerland, paris and athens. A new fast maintenance engineer will be based in kiev. The engineers, who can be dispatched by airplane, train, automobile or van, are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to respond to maintenance issues in the field. Each engineer is type-rated on multiple gulfstream aircraft models. All are easa-licensed mechanical and/or electrical engineers and have earned an faa airframe and powerplant license. Gulfstream’s long list of customer resources in europe also includes two field service representatives in england and one in russia, spain and switzerland, respectively. Gulfstream also has company-authorized service centers at jet aviation’s sites in basel, geneva and moscow, and three company-authorized warranty facilities, altenrhein aviation in altenrhein, switzerland, and kiev, and corjet maintenance in madrid.

GULFSTREAM EXPANDS SUPPORT NETWORK IN INDIA WITH SPARE PARTS CONSIGNMENT AGREEMENT

Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. today announced it has signed an exclusive spare parts consignment agreement with aviation services provider Air Works India Engineering Pvt. Ltd. Under the agreement, Gulfstream positions frequently needed aircraft replacement parts at Air Works’ warehouse in Bengaluru, India, while Air Works arranges for parts warehousing, customs clearance and delivery to customers.

Gulfstream began stocking parts at Air Works’ warehouse adjacent to Bengaluru International Airport in April. The approximate parts value is expected to reach $15 million by the end of 2013. “By having inventory in India, we can expedite delivery of parts to domestic and in-transit customers, quite possibly saving hours or even days,” said Derek Zimmerman, vice president, Product Support Materials, Gulfstream. “This expediency can lower costs for operators and significantly reduce aircraft downtime, particularly during aircraft-on-ground situations.”

The inventory at Air Works includes rotable and consumable parts for all in-production Gulfstream business jets along with out-of-production models such as the GV, GIV and G200. “We are delighted with the signing of this agreement with Gulfstream,” said Ravi Menon, executive director, Air Works. “We have had a longstanding relationship with Gulfstream as their authorized warranty facility in India, and the positioning of consignment stock at our forward stocking location in Bengaluru translates into a tremendous value addition to Gulfstream aircraft owners and operators.”

Gulfstream operators also have access to more than $56 million in parts and materials inventory positioned at three sites in Asia – Beijing, Hong Kong and Singapore. Working closely with Air Works personnel is Gulfstream’s Aniruddh Srivastava, regional director, Service Parts Distribution for India. The Gulfstream fleet in India has grown from five aircraft in 2001 to more than 20 today.

Air Works’ Mumbai facility is an authorized warranty center for Gulfstream. Its technicians are authorized by the country’s Directorate General of Civil Aviation to work on the G550, G500, GV, GIV, GIV-SP, G200 and G100 models. Another support resource for Gulfstream customers in India is field service representative Kannan Kumar, who is based in Chennai.

Gulfstream opens sales and design center in london

Quote:
gulfstream aerospace corp. Recently opened a sales and design center in london, the company's first such facility outside the united states. The nearly 5,500-square-foot/511-square-meter center, located in the mayfair district of central london, gives international customers more convenient access to gulfstream's sales and design staff.

Gulfstream also has sales and design centers at its company headquarters in savannah and at its facility in dallas.

"because of london's stature as one of the world's financial and cultural capitals, many of our customers and potential customers worldwide have business interests there and visit frequently or have a residence in the area," said scott neal, senior vice president, sales and marketing, gulfstream. "they'll now have a convenient gulfstream facility in london where they can go through the aircraft selection and cabin-design process easily and efficiently."

the london sales and design center includes a showroom filled with leather, veneer, fabric and carpet selections along with conference rooms and customer offices.

As in the savannah and dallas centers, customers can use gulfstream's new state-of-the-art visualization software called designbook™, which displays a highly realistic image of a cabin in real time on a touch-screen monitor or tablet computer screen. The rendering includes cabin configurations, colors, fabrics and furnishings.

The london sales and design center is staffed by sales executives and support personnel, including trevor esling, gulfstream regional senior vice president, international sales for europe, the middle east and africa.

The facility complements other gulfstream resources in the united kingdom. Less than an hour away, in luton, england, is one of the company's three international service centers. The site at london luton airport includes a 75,000-square-foot/6,968-square-meter hangar and a 10,000-square-foot/929-square-meter parts and materials warehouse. Approximately 190 employees work at the 24-hours-a-day, seven-days-a-week operation.

GULFSTREAM OPENS SALES AND DESIGN CENTER IN DALLAS

Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. today announced it has opened a sales and design center at the company’s facility in Dallas. The 9,300-square-foot (864-square-meter) center enhances the customer experience during the sales and design stages of a Gulfstream business jet by allowing them to see and evaluate potential paint schemes, cabin layouts and interior cabin selections.

Gulfstream Dallas encompasses more than 420,000 square feet (39,019 square meters) and comprises a completions center for Gulfstream mid-cabin aircraft — the new super mid-size G280 and the wide-cabin, high-speed G150 — and a service center for all Gulfstream aircraft.

“With the entry-into-service of the G280, we wanted to offer mid-cabin customers cabin-design capability at the same location where their aircraft is being completed,” said Tray Crow, director, Interior Design. “What they will find is a clean and neutral space that is comfortable and conducive to the process of choosing an aircraft and personalizing its interior to suit their needs.”

The centerpiece of the Dallas Sales and Design Center is a material showroom filled with leathers, fabric swatches, carpet samples and veneers as well as examples of cabin amenities. Using a state-of-the-art, mobile visualization application called DesignBook™, which Gulfstream first demonstrated to customers at the 2012 National Business Aviation Association Meeting & Convention in Orlando, Fla., customers and company personnel can also experiment with various cabin configurations, colors and fabrics.

DesignBook is also available at Gulfstream’s Savannah Sales and Design Center, a similarly equipped 17,900-square-foot (1,663-square-meter) facility that opened in June 2007.

“This technology enables our Interior Design teams to create a highly realistic rendering of a cabin in real time,” Crow said. “With the click of a mouse or touch of a screen, customers can see how different fabrics and colors look together in a particular cabin configuration. We can adjust and refine until the customer gets the desired interior.” The Gulfstream Dallas Sales and Design Center is staffed by designers, Completion Sales executives and support staff.
