Gulfstream Aerospace has been awarded $696 million in contracts to support the fleet of C-20G (GIV), C-37A (GV), and C-37B (G550) aircraft used by the U.S. Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marines, and Navy. The $612 million engineering services contract (ESC) is a 10-year renewal of a previous ESC while an $84 million contractor logistics support (CLS) contract is the fourth-year option of an existing CLS contract.

Through the ESC contract, Gulfstream’s government program and special missions office will provide engineering services, aircraft modifications, configuration management, data delivery, and publication management. Gulfstream’s customer support organization will provide field services and technical operations support.

“Gulfstream is grateful for the continued confidence the U.S. government has in our program,” said Gulfstream senior v-p of government programs and sales Leda Chong. “What started as an engineering services contract for nine C-20 U.S. Air Force aircraft 20 years ago has evolved into a support contract for a 23-aircraft fleet.”

Awarding of the contracts was made by the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center at Tinker Air Force Base in Oklahoma.
