Gulfstream Aerospace officially opened new company-owned service center at Palm Beach International Airport. The facility, shared with Jet Aviation, will have a hangar for each company and shared office space. “Gulfstream has had a presence in Palm Beach for almost 20 years with the capability to accommodate all Gulfstream models,” said Derek Zimmerman, president, Gulfstream Customer Support. “We are excited to open a state-of-the-art facility that will offer world-class service to a greater number of Gulfstream aircraft simultaneously. The Palm Beach service center is well-positioned to support customers in domestic and international markets, including South America.”

The all-new joint facility is nearly 161,000 square feet/14,960 square meters, with over 104,000 sq ft/9,600 sq m dedicated to Gulfstream. The air-conditioned facility can accommodate up to seven Gulfstream G650ER™ or G650™ aircraft. Jet Aviation occupies the remaining 56,700 sq ft/5,267 sq m.

The Gulfstream Palm Beach facility offers a broad range of services, including major inspections; structural modifications and repairs; and major avionics installations and system upgrades. It is a certified U.S. Federal Aviation Administration and European Union Aviation Safety Agency repair station and has maintenance approvals from Argentina, Aruba, the Bahamas, Bermuda, Brazil, Burundi, Canada, the Cayman Islands, the Isle of Man, Mexico, Peru, San Marino and Venezuela.

Palm Beach is one of many new service centers in the Gulfstream Customer Support network. In 2019, Gulfstream opened a facility in Van Nuys, California, and expanded in Appleton, Wisconsin, and Savannah. Gulfstream recently began operations at a newly built service center in Farnborough, England.
