Gulfstream to take over Jet Aviation’s MRO at St Louis

Gulfstream is to assume responsibility for the maintenance operations currently run by sister company Jet Aviation at St Louis Downtown Airport in Cahokia, Illinois. Jet Aviation will fulfill its current MRO and completions obligations through the transition, which is scheduled to start later in 2017 and be complete in 2018.

“The facility will complement our network of eight company-owned service centers in the USA and provide additional maintenance and service capacity for the growing Gulfstream fleet and service business,” said Derek Zimmerman, president, Gulfstream Product Support.

“The transition addresses our excess maintenance capacity in St Louis while helping Gulfstream provide additional support for its customers,” said David Paddock, senior vice president and general manager of Jet Aviation Regional Operations USA.

“With 12 locations in North America, we are focused on expanding our footprint and providing Jet Aviation’s customers with value-added flight services, including FBO, aircraft management, charter and staffing. Jet Aviation will continue to provide MRO services in Burbank, California, to support the growing West Coast-managed fleet and also continue to operate the FBO at St Louis Downtown Airport.”

Vince Ruscitti will be the general manager at Gulfstream St Louis. He has worked at Gulfstream for 18 years, most recently as director of service center operations at Gulfstream Dallas. Gulfstream St Louis technicians will have FAA authorization to perform maintenance on all USA-registered Gulfstream jets.
