"Gulfstream is grateful for the continued confidence the U.S. government has in our program," said Leda Chong, Gulfstream's senior vice president for Government Programs and Sales. "What started as an engineering services contract for nine C-20 U.S. Air Force aircraft 20 years ago has evolved into a support contract for a 23-aircraft fleet."

"Our dedicated engineers and technical support experts look forward to supporting and ensuring the success of the U.S. military's special missions," said Chong.

Gulfstream will perform the work in Savannah, Georgia; Joint Base Andrews, Maryland; Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport, Washington, D.C.; Hickam Air Force Base and Marine Corps Base, Hawaii; and Ramstein Air Base, Germany.

"Gulfstream Customer Support has been proud to provide services for the U.S. government for many years," said Derek Zimmerman, president of Gulfstream Customer Support. "The engineering services contract is a prime example of Gulfstream's ability to collaborate across functions to provide the strongest support in the industry, and we are excited to partner closely with the U.S. government for another decade."
