: Nov 12, 2019 - : 5:28 pm

GKN Aerospace has been selected as a key supplier on the  Gulfstream G700 business jet that was unveiled at NBAA on 21 October.

GKN Aerospace has designed and manufactured empennages and thermoplastic components on the aircraft. The rudder and elevators that are part of the empennage as well as the floorboards feature the latest thermoplastic technology. GKN Aerospace also produces the bonded fuselage panels for the new fuselage. Production takes place in facilities in Hoogeveen and Papendrecht in the Netherlands.

GKN Aerospace’s Fokker business began participating in Gulfstream’s business jet programs in 1993. GKN Aerospace’s market leading position in business jet empennages has been proven in the design and manufacture of empennages for many Gulfstream large and ultra-large cabin aircraft, as well as for business jets of Cessna, Dassault and HondaJet.

“We are proud to be selected again as a key supplier on Gulfstream’s latest flagship,” said John Pritchard, GKN Aerospace’s CEO for Aerostructures and Systems Europe and Asia. “Our partnership of more than 25 years in all Gulfstream’s business jets is extremely valuable and has led to many breakthroughs in lightweight composite technology. We truly feel part of the Gulfstream family.’’
