Gulfstream Aerospace has added three specially outfitted Field and Airborne Support Team (Fast) vehicles to its support network. The new rapid-response Gulfstream Fast vehicles are based at Van Nuys Airport near Los Angeles, William P. Hobby Airport in Houston and New York-area Teterboro Airport.

Each vehicle has a team of two or three technicians and is designed to support operators facing an AOG. Onboard capabilities include line service repairs, engine changes, post-flight and storage inspections, minor scheduled inspections and minor cabin interior repairs.

Two of the new vehicles feature a 24-foot-long by eight-foot-wide box on a medium-duty commercial chassis cab. The other new truck has a slightly smaller box attached to a medium duty commercial cab and frame. Inclement weather is not a deterrent to the work scope on the vehicles since technicians work directly out of the box or work station.

The vehicles are equipped with technical data access, a consolidated toolbox, replacement parts, a generator, a ground power unit, a lift, a hydraulic mule, an air compressor and jacks.
