Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. recently recognized the first anniversary of its service center, Gulfstream Beijing, at Beijing Capital International Airport. Gulfstream is the only business-jet manufacturer to offer factory service in China.
“It has been a successful first year for Gulfstream Beijing,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream Product Support. “We have experienced steady growth and have expanded our capabilities. As the Gulfstream fleet continues to grow in the Asia-Pacific region, we’ll look for ways to enhance and add to the services we provide at Gulfstream Beijing.”
More than 220 Gulfstream aircraft are based in the Asia-Pacific region, including well over 100 in China and Hong Kong combined. The company’s fleet has tripled since 2008.
Gulfstream Beijing technicians have serviced more than 120 aircraft since the facility began operations in November 2012. That number includes hangar visits, aircraft elsewhere at Beijing Capital International Airport and throughout greater China, Japan and South Korea. China-based operators represent more than half of those customers.
