Dixon gets new key role at Gulfstream

Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation of the US has named Stan Dixon Vice President, G650 Continuous Improvement. 

Dixon reports to Larry Flynn, President, Gulfstream.

This newly created position builds on the business jet manufacturer’s longstanding commitment to a robust continuous improvement programme. 

In his new role, Dixon is responsible for ensuring the continued success, reliability, quality and availability of the Gulfstream G650 and flagship G650ER.

“The creation of this dedicated position demonstrates our commitment to our customers and to ensuring the products we deliver continue to exceed expectations in every way possible,” says Flynn. “Stan brings 35 years of aviation management experience to this role. His extensive background in program management, aircraft development, production programmes and business operations makes him uniquely qualified to oversee all aspects of the G650 programmes.”

In his previous role as vice president of Government and Sustaining Programmes, Dixon managed entry-into-service programmes for Gulfstream’s in-production fleet; led the Reliability, Quality and Availability Action Team; co-chaired the Production Change Management Team; and oversaw all retrofit management programmes.

In addition, he provided leadership for all government programme activities, from the bid and proposal phase through the delivery and post-delivery process.

Before that, Dixon served as vice president, Mid-Cabin Programmes, managing all activities relating to Gulfstream’s mid-cabin aircraft, including the development of the G150 and G280 aircraft.

Dixon joined Gulfstream in 1999 as director of Purchasing & Sub Contracts. He earned an engineering degree from Texas A&M University in College Station and is an active pilot with commercial, multi-engine and instrument ratings.

A wholly owned subsidiary of General Dynamics, Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation designs, develops, manufactures, markets, services and supports the world’s most technologically advanced business-jet aircraft. 

Gulfstream has produced more than 2,200 aircraft for customers around the world since 1958. To meet the diverse transportation needs of the future, Gulfstream offers a comprehensive fleet of aircraft, comprising the G150, the G280, the G450, the G550, the G500, the G600, the G650 and the G650ER.
