Gulfstream Aerospace recently launched BudgetPlus, a parts subscription service that offers mid-cabin Gulfstream owners and operators a way to manage their annual maintenance costs. The launch formalizes a pilot program Gulfstream introduced in 2005.

BudgetPlus is a cost-assured parts provision program for owners and operators of Gulfstream G200s, G150s, G100s and Astras. For a flat hourly fee, Gulfstream provides program participants with exchange and consumable parts as needed. Fees are based on the age of the aircraft andare charged monthly, with a required minimum of 300 hours per year.

“Working in concert with the industry-leading Gulfstream product support network, BudgetPlus offers mid-cabin operators convenience, consistency and control over their maintenance costs,” said Mark Burns, the company’s president for product support. “This program simplifies the maintenance process for the people our owners and operators entrust to service their Gulfstream aircraft.”
