Gulfstream Aerospace’s auxiliary power unit (APU) repair facility at the company’s Savannah, Georgia headquarters service center has been recognized as a center of excellence by Honeywell Aerospace. Established in June 2008, this facility features a maintenance shop and a 300-sq-ft test cell where technicians can repair and test APUs installed on jets made by Gulfstream and other business aircraft OEMs.
According to Honeywell Aerospace senior director for business and general aviation aftermarket business Neil Hounjet, Gulfstream’s continuous investment in APU material, tooling, and maintenance personnel allows it to “deliver a high-quality finished product and achieve turnaround times that are better than industry standard.”
Gulfstream is authorized to perform heavy repairs and overhauls, as well as warranty and manufacturer service program work, on a wide range of Honeywell APUs, including the 36-100, 36-150, RE100, RE220 series, and HGT400. The facility has also received nearly 30 foreign authority approvals.
