Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. recently celebrated five years of successful operations at Gulfstream Beijing, its company-owned service center in China. The facility, a joint venture between Gulfstream and HNA Technic, was the first factory-owned business-jet service center in China when it opened in November 2012.

“Gulfstream Beijing is a valuable resource for Beijing-based operators and those traveling through China,” said Derek Zimmerman, president, Gulfstream Product Support. “As the Gulfstream fleet in the Asia-Pacific region continues to grow and mature, we will enhance and add to the services we provide at Gulfstream Beijing.”

“As a shareholder of Gulfstream Beijing, HNA Technic will continue to support its growth,” said Zhang Zhigang, chairman of HNA Technic. “The continuous extension of the aviation maintenance industry chain over the last several years has enabled our company to expand and add services and capabilities. We look forward to adding additional resources and exploring synergies with our partner for the ongoing development of Gulfstream Beijing.”

More than 190 Gulfstream aircraft are based in Greater China, while the company’s Asia-Pacific fleet has grown to more than 330. Since the start of operations, Gulfstream Beijing technicians have supported more than 800 maintenance events, including road trips, to assist customers in China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Japan, South Korea and the Philippines.

Gulfstream Beijing, located at Beijing Capital International Airport, comprises nearly 70,000 square feet/6,503 square meters of hangar space, offices and back shops, as well as training and warehouse space. The site has maintenance approvals from China, the U.S., Hong Kong, Macau and the Cayman Islands for all Gulfstream large-cabin aircraft, along with the super mid-sized G280 and mid-cabin G200.

Gulfstream Beijing has immediate access to more than $46 million in parts and materials strategically positioned at warehouses in Beijing, Hong Kong and Singapore.
