Gus Lira, one of the VP’s at JetOptions has read in SavannahNow.com a story by Mary Carr Mayle that states that Savannah-based Gulfstream Aerospace is making a move into the Chinese business aviation market, signing an agreement with Beijing-based Deer Jet Co. Ltd. to support the company’s growing fleet of Gulfstream aircraft.
Deer Jet is China’s largest business-jet charter operator and owns three Gulfstream G550s, two Gulfstream GVs, four Gulfstream GIVs and four Gulfstream G200s.
Under the new agreement, Gulfstream will expand its support network in mainland China to provide Deer Jet with a maintenance support team that includes a maintenance technician, avionics technician and quality-control specialist.
“The business-jet market in China is expanding rapidly, and we are committed to staying ahead of that growth with an expanding product support infrastructure,” said Mark Burns, president of Gulfstream Product Support.
“This agreement ensures Deer Jet receives the award-winning product support Gulfstream is known for and that Deer Jet can continue to pursue growth opportunities in Asia.”
