Gulfstream Appleton receives approval from aviation authorities in Cayman Islands and South Korea
Thursday February 28th 2013 - Gulfstream Press Release
The Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. service centre in Appleton, Wis., recently earned approved maintenance organization (AMO) designations from the Cayman Islands and South Korea. With these authorizations, various model aircraft registered under the Civil Aviation Authority of the Cayman Islands and the Korean Ministry of Land, Transport and Maritime Affairs can undergo maintenance, repairs, alterations and inspections at Gulfstreamâ€™s Appleton facility.
Gulfstream Appleton is the fourth company-owned service centre to earn AMO approval from the Cayman Islands, joining Gulfstream Savannah, Gulfstream Long Beach in California, and Gulfstream Westfield in Massachusetts. Gulfstream Appleton and Gulfstream Long Beach have AMO approval from South Korea.
The aircraft covered by Gulfstream Appletonâ€™s Cayman Islands certificate includes all Gulfstream aircraft, the Bombardier Challenger 600 series and the Hawker Beechcraft 800 series, 850XP and 700 models. The South Korean authorization is for work on G550s.
"The Cayman Islands registry continues to grow, as does South Koreaâ€™s, so these are important authorizations for Appleton," said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream Product Support. "Earning these approvals gives Gulfstream and other aircraft operators another option for quality service and support."
Gulfstream Appleton is a U.S. Federal Aviation Administration and European Aviation Safety Agency Part 145 repair station, which means the siteâ€™s 700-plus employees can also work on aircraft registered in the U.S. and European Union countries. In 2012, Appletonâ€™s workforce serviced 360 aircraft.
Gulfstream Appleton also has maintenance approvals from the civil aviation authorities in Bermuda, Canada, China, Nigeria and Saudi Arabia.
