More Gulfstream customer support has been added in France and China. This is seen in the added support at the Paris LeBourget with additional maintenance hangar space as well as more inspection capabilities in Beijing at its factory-owned Service Center there. "Our ability to work in a hangar at Le Bourget will protect a customer’s aircraft from the elements and create an efficient working environment with room for tooling and equipment," said Gulfstream Customer Support President Derek Zimmerman.
It appears that Gulfstream is closing its service center in Brazil. The service center located at the Bertram Luiz Leupolz Airport in Sorocaba was a major facility. With over 200 Gulfstream jets flying around in Latin America it is important to have a service center in Brazil but with this planned closing of the Sorocaba facility Gulfstream plans to expand its FAST (Field and Airborne Support Teams) offerings and joining them with a yet-to-be-named authorized service provider in Brazil. For now, the Sorocaba facility will remain open with limited staffing to take some appointments.
