The recent validation by Europe’s Joint Aviation Authorities of the Gulfstream 300 and 400 enables these business jets to receive JAA-approved certification by, and be registered in, any of the 37 JAA-member countries. Gulfstream expects JAA validation of the G500 and G550 by year-end. Meanwhile, the company also received JAA validation to work on European-registered G300s and 400s at its new service center at London Luton Airport. In April, BBA Aviation sold the former Signature maintenance operation and its 50,000-sq-ft hangar at Luton to Gulfstream Aerospace.
