GULFSTREAM AWARDED $14 MILLION CONTRACT TO PROVIDE U.S. AIR FORCE FOLLOW-ON MAINTENANCE SUPPORT FOR EGYPTIAN PRESIDENTIAL FLEET
Gulfstream To Service and Support Egyptian Government's Eight Gulfstream Business Jet Aircraft Used for VIP Transport
SAVANNAH, Ga., Dec. 8, 2003 -- Gulfstream Aerospace, a wholly owned subsidiary of General Dynamics (NYSE: GD), has been awarded a $14,182,226 firm-fixed price contract from the U.S. Air Force to provide scheduled inspections and maintenance for the Egyptian government's presidential fleet of Gulfstream aircraft.
Previously announced by the U.S. Department of Defense, the contract commenced Oct. 31, 2003 and will end Nov. 1, 2005. It will provide depot maintenance support, parts and material repair and technical personnel for Aircraft on Ground or urgent situation support.
The Egyptian government currently operates two Gulfstream IIIs, one Gulfstream IV, four Gulfstream IV-SPs and a Gulfstream G400, which was delivered on November 14. Gulfstream will deliver a second G400 to the Egyptian government in the third quarter next year. The Egyptian government acquires U.S. aircraft and contracts for service and maintenance through the Air Force's Foreign Military Sales Program.
"Since the Egyptian Government took delivery of its first Gulfstream aircraft in 1984, we've taken great satisfaction in supporting their growing Gulfstream fleet," said Bryan Moss, president, Gulfstream. "With this agreement, we will provide the highest level of service to ensure Egyptian government officials can rely on their aircraft when addressing national and international matters."
More than 34 countries operate Gulfstream aircraft in a variety of roles, including 22 that use them to transport their heads of state.
