Gulfstream Plans a Busy Year of Customer Events

Gulfstream Aerospace has a full schedule of customer-support events for 2017 that includes nine forums, two advisory board meetings and a virtual operators conference.

Gulfstream recently held the first of these events—its first-ever pilots’ forum—in conjunction with the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. The January 18 event, held in Zurich, was tailored specifically for Gulfstream flight crews and included presentations on advanced aircraft technology, polar operations, connectivity, and the Gulfstream G650/650ER.

Eight other forums will focus on maintenance and operations, including fleet status, mandate and technology updates, maintenance management, technical training, and pending technical bulletins. The company will also provide an overview of its fleet support services.

“These forums are one of many ways we communicate and connect with our customers worldwide,” said Derek Zimmerman, president, Gulfstream product support. “Face-to-face meetings with our customers allow us to build and strengthen our relationships with them. We exchange information and learn from each other.”

The other operator forums will be held March 14 in San Jose, California; April 12 in Shanghai; May 9 in Dallas; May 23 in Geneva; August 16 in São Paulo, BRazil; September 14 in London; October 11 in Las Vegas; and, November 7 in White Plains, New York.

The 2017 schedule also includes two Customer Advisory Board meetings in Savannah, Georgia, from February 27 to March 1 and from August 28 to 30.  The events will involve approximately 100 Gulfstream operators and will enable the company to gather feedback about its aircraft and support services.

Gulfstream’s virtual online Operators Conference, to be held from June 26 to 30, will provide updates on model-specific programs, regulatory mandates, select aircraft systems, and critical inspections to pilots, technicians, flight attendants, and other flight operations personnel worldwide. Gulfstream began holding the online event in 2015.
