Gulfstream Aerospace has delivered the first Gulfstream G600 to be outfitted at its Dallas facility. The company expanded completions operations to the Dallas location 10 months ago in response to a growing demand for its large-cabin G600. It also completes super-midsize G280s at this center.
“We are seeing tremendous demand for our next-generation aircraft,” said Gulfstream president Mark Burns. “Expanding G600 completions to Dallas is positioning us well for the future as we prepare for G700 entry into service, continued G500 and G600 in-service fleet growth, and the interest we are seeing in the recently announced G400 and G800.”
The G600 can be configured in four living areas for up to 19 passengers or three living areas with a crew compartment for up to 13 passengers. Like other Gulfstreams, the interior cabinetry, furnishings, and finishes are made by skilled craftsmen.
“Our interiors and the individuals who create and install them are the best in the business. In fact, we have received direct feedback from this newest G600 customer citing an ‘outstanding’ experience, and I’m excited for our customers to experience the unparalleled quality and excellence produced by the team at our Dallas facility,” said Burns.
The addition of G600 completions to the Gulfstream Dallas facility is part of the company’s larger growth strategy, which includes an expanded service center at nearby Fort Worth Alliance Airport that is set to open later this year. Gulfstream Customer Support also recently announced a new service center in Mesa, Arizona. In addition to Dallas, the company outfits its large-cabin jets in Savannah, Georgia, and Appleton, Wisconsin.
