We all know that GAC is already in a shaky place. If and when this virus gets worse, I say GD/GAC will absolute have another RIF. I bet they will be hemorrhaging cash once sales decline, suppliers going out of business, and production temporarily... —  read more 

Late 2020 Layoffs

Brace for impact folks. The economy is in free fall and Gulfstream will inevitably be looking to shed its workforce. I estimate 20% by the end of the year. It has been a great run but the bubble had to burst sometime and the government has already... —  read more

Engineering should be safe

Truth be told there’s no way they will let anyone else go in engineering. It is short staffed and rehiring already. Whoever made these choices for the rift must have been an outside agency that did not fully understand the structure. I agree... —  read more

Things will not be the same

There's no going back for Gulfstream after the latest layoffs. So many good people gone, so many wrong people still here. How do they expect us to continue like this?

G700 roll out farce

Its disgraceful that gulfstream can do a roll out ceremony for their new airplane when they have laid off most of the key design engineers on that program. Bad timing very distasteful. If only all was known. The engines failed the stress test... —  read more

So embarrassed......

There was a time that I would defend the Gulfstream name as I would my family name. Now I don’t want my name associated with this product. At 59 it is hard to execute an exit strategy. Until then, I will uphold the principles that foundated this... —  read more
