Event Overview:

Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation is a wholly owned subsidiary of General Dynamics (NYSE: GD) that designs, develops, manufactures, markets, services and supports the world’s most technologically advanced business-jet aircraft. Gulfstream has produced more than 2,800 aircraft for customers around the world since 1958. To meet the diverse transportation needs of the future, Gulfstream offers a comprehensive fleet of aircraft, comprising the Gulfstream G280TM, the Gulfstream G500TM, the Gulfstream G550TM, the Gulfstream G600TM, the Gulfstream G650TM, the Gulfstream G650ERTM and the Gulfstream G700TM. With over a dozen locations throughout the US, as well as multiple countries throughout the world, Gulfstream clearly is a global company.

Given the need to add capacity to meet the service demands of the growing worldwide fleet, expansion plans have been underway for a couple of years organization wide. A large component of the expansion effort was to add an additional hangar in Appleton, which in turn allows for an additional 50% capacity for aircraft service work in Appleton. The tour and presentation will focus on the recently completed Maintenance Repair & Overhaul (MRO) facility.
