Gulfstream Aerospace has bolstered its European support of Gulfstream operators with the addition of a custom-outfitted Field and Airborne Support Team (Fast) vehicle. The Iveco cargo van, based at Gulfstream’s facility at London Luton Airport, can transport up to three technicians to support operators with AOG or other predicaments.

“This Fast vehicle is outfitted with the tools and storage that enable our Luton technicians to become an even more valuable resource for customers at airports throughout the United Kingdom and Europe,” said Mark Burns, president of Gulfstream Product Support. “The ability to travel to an aircraft’s location typically results in faster return to service for an operator and financial savings because there’s no need for relocation expenses.”

The 22-foot-by-13-foot Fast vehicle is equipped with a work table, vise, generator, hydraulic ramp, wheel storage, jacks, compressed gas, consumables such as oil, paint and sealants and Wi-Fi. With these resources, Gulfstream technicians can perform line service repairs, post-flight and storage inspections, and minor cabin repairs.
