    Gulfstream Aerospace Corp., its community partners, program alumni and students recently celebrated the 10th anniversary of the Savannah-based Student Leadership Program as part of the initiative’s year-end event and graduation.

    Founded by Gulfstream in 2008 and now supported by a collaboration of more than 40 businesses and community partners nationwide, the Student Leadership Program is designed to provide students the opportunity to learn more about careers in aviation, science, technology, engineering and math.

    The program’s curriculum focuses on developing work readiness, instilling leadership skills and providing educational opportunities, such as tours of local businesses, to help foster engagement and interest among youth. Summer experience trips help enhance career and life development through college campus tours and a leadership and citizenship trip to Washington, D.C. The program also teaches students highly valuable skills needed to succeed in the workplace, including resume-writing and presentation skills.

    “The Student Leadership Program is truly making a positive difference in the lives of tomorrow’s workforce. What began as a small pilot program to serve the students of the Savannah-Chatham County Public School System now enlists more than 40 partners nationwide who have invested in the futures of nearly 1,000 students,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream. “We hope this critical program will continue to expand and enrich the lives of more students as they explore their potential.”

    Gulfstream had its clean-sheet G500 will be on display at the 2018 Russian Business Aviation Exhibition (RUBAE), Sept. 12-14, in Moscow. The G500’s RUBAE debut came just after the aircraft earned its U.S. Federal Aviation Administration type and production certificates in July.

    In an unprecedented move General Dynamics company Gulfstream has acquired the nacelle line from manufacturer Nordam. You would remember that they were having some issues with this supplier relating to delivering nacelles for its brand newly certificated G500 and the soon to be certified G600. "Gulfstream has been operating the Tulsa line since early September, as part of an agreement with Nordam to address its July bankruptcy filing," the airframer says. The deal, filed in a Delaware bankruptcy court, allowed Savannah-headquartered Gulfstream to restart nacelle manufacturing "and provide for the eventual transfer of the programme's assets". A bankruptcy judge approved the transfer on 26th of September thereby allowing Gulfstream to complete the acquisition. It also clears the way for Nordam to emerge from Chapter 11.

    Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. recently announced its first sale of sustainable alternative jet fuel (SAJF) to a Gulfstream operator. The customer, a U.S.-based multinational corporation, purchased 20,000 pounds of SAJF from Gulfstream’s Long Beach, California, facility for its Gulfstream G550.

    "This sale is a direct result of our efforts to increase the visibility and availability of sustainable alternative jet fuel for our customers," said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. "We are committed to helping promote increased use of SAJF throughout the industry. We’ve been using the fuel since 2016 with our corporate, demonstration and Flight Test fleets, and we’re now proud to offer it to operators as well. We look forward to the day this fuel is commonplace in our industry and we are all doing our part to reduce emissions worldwide."

    Gulfstream announced at a recent SAJF event, Business Jets Fuel Green: A Step Toward Sustainability, at California’s Van Nuys Airport, that it would offer SAJF this year to customers using its Long Beach facility. The SAJF is available earlier than expected. Also, Gulfstream will start using it on large-cabin aircraft completions flights departing from Long Beach Airport. Gulfstream has used a 30/70 blend of low-carbon, drop-in SAJF and Jet-A in operations at its Savannah headquarters since 2012. California-based World Energy, which has a refinery approximately 10 miles from Long Beach Airport, produces the SAJF Gulfstream uses.
