Gulfstream Aerospace is adding G600 completions operations at its Dallas Love Field (KDAL) facility to accommodate growing demand for its newest large-cabin twinjet, boosting its outfitting capability at KDAL beyond super-midsize G280s. As part of this expansion, Gulfstream director of Savannah completions Melissa Grant has been promoted to v-p and general manager of the Dallas facility and will be relocating there.
The addition of G600 completions to the Dallas facility is being facilitated by the company’s expansion to nearby Fort Worth Alliance Airport, where it is building a new 160,000-sq-ft MRO complex that is expected to open in the fourth quarter. This facility will include an 80,000-sq-ft hangar, 32,000 sq ft of office space, and 44,000 sq ft of back shops and support areas.
“We are seeing great demand for our next-generation aircraft, including the G600,” said Gulfstream president Mark Burns. “Thanks to our long-term strategic planning, the growth of Gulfstream Customer Support at Fort Worth Alliance Airport is allowing us to optimize completions at our Dallas Love Field facility and add the G600 to operations there.”
In addition to Dallas, Gulfstream large-cabin completions are also performed in Appleton, Wisconsin, and the company’s headquarters in Savannah, Georgia. The aircraft manufacturer is also currently expanding and renovating its Appleton facility.
