Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. and sister company Jet Aviation announced that Gulfstream will assume responsibility for Jet Aviation’s maintenance operations at St. Louis Downtown Airport in Cahokia, Illinois. Jet Aviation will continue to fulfill its obligation to current maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) and completions customers through the transition, which will start later this year and finish in 2018.

“Having a Gulfstream MRO facility in St. Louis reflects Gulfstream’s commitment to providing customers first-class support throughout their ownership experience,” said Derek Zimmerman, president, Gulfstream Product Support. “The facility will complement our network of eight company-owned service centers in the United States and provide additional maintenance and service capacity for the growing Gulfstream fleet and service business. The St. Louis facility, which is already part of the General Dynamics family, is ideally situated for providing Gulfstream operators a regional maintenance resource.”

David Paddock, senior vice president and general manager of Jet Aviation Regional Operations USA, said, “The transition addresses our excess maintenance capacity in St. Louis while helping Gulfstream provide additional support for their customers. With 12 locations in North America, we are focused on expanding our footprint and providing Jet Aviation’s customers with value-added flight services, including fixed-base operator (FBO), aircraft management, charter and staffing. Jet Aviation will continue to provide MRO services in Burbank, California, to support the growing West Coast-managed fleet and also continue to operate the FBO at St. Louis Downtown Airport.”

Gulfstream St. Louis will be overseen by General Manager Vince Ruscitti, an 18-year Gulfstream employee. Prior to this appointment, Ruscitti was the director of Service Center Operations at Gulfstream Dallas.

Gulfstream St. Louis technicians will be authorized by the Federal Aviation Administration to perform maintenance on all Gulfstream business jets registered in the U.S.
