Gulfstream Aerospace has opened a paint facility in Savannah, Georgia specifically for in-service aircraft.
All Gulfstream aircraft models can be accommodated in the air-conditioned and heated space, which is is divided into a crossdraft bay for stripping, sanding and priming, and a downdraft bay for painting.
"Demand for new Gulfstream aircraft is strong and so is the demand for enhancing aircraft already in service,” said Joe Rivera, vice president and general manager, Gulfstream Savannah Service Centre.
"This facility gives customers a dedicated space for our product support organisation to tackle their paint requests, from full strip-and-paint jobs to custom livery and logo applications.
"Its close proximity to the Savannah Service Center makes it an ideal location for customers who need maintenance and/or refurbishment work to go along with painting an individual part, multiple parts or an entire aircraft. The end result will be reduced downtimes.”
