Gulfstream service centers get maintenance approvals from Brazil, Cayman Islands, India, Hong Kong and Qatar

5bc809922b62b92fb0594be109b18fc9_XLFrom Aviation tribune

Gulfstream Aerospace today announced that several of its service centers recently earned approved maintenance organization (AMO) designations from civil aviation authorities worldwide, increasing maintenance and repair options for customers.

The authorizations were secured from several countries, including Qatar, which granted AMO status to Gulfstream’s maintenance facilities in Savannah and Luton, England. Any Gulfstream aircraft registered with Qatar’s Civil Aviation Authority can undergo maintenance, repairs, alterations and inspections at those two service centers.

The designation coincides with Gulfstream’s recent delivery of a G650ER, the first of up to 30 aircraft, to ’ business jet division, Qatar Executive.

“Qatar Executive has shown tremendous confidence in our aircraft and our maintenance capabilities,” said Derek Zimmerman, president, Gulfstream Product Support. “We are committed to providing the best service and support in the industry, and these additional AMO designations help us continue to do that.”

Gulfstream also recently secured the following:

– The Savannah service center received approval from the Hong Kong Civil Aviation Department (HKAR) to perform maintenance on HKAR-registered G650ER and G650 aircraft, and was authorized by Brazil’s Agência Nacional de Aviação Civil (ANAC) to work on ANAC-registered G650ER, G650, G280 and G150 jets.

– Gulfstream’s service operation in Teterboro, New Jersey, and its Las Vegas service center earned approval from the Cayman Islands’ Civil Aviation Authority (CAACI) to work on all CAACI-registered Gulfstream aircraft.

– Gulfstream’s service center in Dallas was authorized by India’s Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) to perform maintenance on all DGCA-registered Gulfstream aircraft.
