SAVANNAH, Georgia, August 7, 2014 — Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. today announced it has opened a hangar specifically for mid-cabin aircraft maintenance at its service center and completions facility at Outagamie County Regional Airport in Appleton, Wisconsin.
The 25,500-square-foot/2,369-square-meter building, which is leased from Outagamie County, comprises 18,000 sq ft/1,672 sq m of hangar space and 7,500 sq ft/697 sq m of office space. The building also includes:
• new hangar doors, which enable it to accommodate all Gulfstream mid-cabin models
• remodeled customer and employee offices
• a glass-enclosed conference room
“Depending on the configuration and mix of G100s, G150s, G200s and G280s, we can house up to five aircraft under one roof,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream Product Support. “That is particularly important in the winter months, when the temperatures in Appleton are consistently in the teens and 20s, and snow and ice are obstacles.
“This expansion allows Gulfstream Appleton to support more mid-cabin customers, get their aircraft in and out of maintenance faster and provide them with a comfortable place to work.”
Gulfstream Appleton’s new hangar is situated between the existing Gulfstream Appleton north and main site buildings at Outagamie County Regional Airport, which is located 90 miles north of Milwaukee.
Gulfstream Appleton is a certified U.S. Federal Aviation Administration and European Aviation Safety Agency Part 145 repair station, which means the site's 900-plus employees can work on aircraft registered in the U.S. and European Union countries. In 2013, Appleton’s technicians serviced more than 500 aircraft.
Gulfstream Appleton is also home to a large-cabin completions center. The site has approximately 300,000 sq ft of hangar, shop and support space.
