SAVANNAH, Georgia, July 7, 2015 — Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. today announced that it now provides maintenance, repair and overhaul services for its operators at Jet Aviation’s Teterboro Airport facility in New Jersey.
Gulfstream’s resources in Teterboro include 11 technicians along with support personnel. The technicians are authorized to work under a U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) repair station authorization and will be managed by Gulfstream’s company-owned service center in Westfield, Massachusetts.
“This is a great opportunity to enhance the support we offer our customers based at or traveling to Teterboro and the entire New York metropolitan area, one of the busiest corridors for Gulfstream traffic in the world,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream. “This location is an ideal addition to our product support network.”
Gulfstream’s Teterboro-based team supports transient Gulfstream traffic and well over 100 operators based at New York-area airports, including Teterboro, Newark and Morristown in New Jersey and Westchester County and Farmingdale in New York. It works closely with Gulfstream Westfield, approximately 135 miles away.
“Gulfstream Westfield has done a tremendous job over the years assisting our customers in the New York metro area,” Burns said. “The added resources for Gulfstream in Teterboro prepare us for our growing fleet. Significant customer benefits include improved response time and reduced downtime.”
Gulfstream’s Teterboro operation offers base maintenance, airframe and avionics, line maintenance, repair and overhaul as well as 24-hour, seven-day-a-week aircraft-on-ground assistance. The Gulfstream staff has quick access to more than $50 million in Gulfstream aircraft parts housed at Teterboro-based FlightPath Services.
Gulfstream’s technicians in Teterboro are authorized by the FAA and European Aviation Safety Agency to perform maintenance on all Gulfstream business jets registered in the U.S. and European Union member countries. They also hold maintenance approvals from Bermuda and the Cayman Islands.
This will give flexibility to China Gulfstream owners who would like to position their Gulfstream jets for additional interior or upgrade work in the NE USA. The Gulfstream can also be ideally situated in the busy NE corridor for resale purposes with such companies as Aviatrade.
