DETAILS: FLYING CEO Craig Fuller chats with Gulfstream president Mark Burns to talk about the private aviation market after COVID-19 and Gulfstream’s new aircraft.

SPEAKER: Burns is president of Gulfstream Aerospace.

BIO: Since 2015, Burns has served as president of Gulfstream Aerospace. He has also served as vice president of Gulfstream’s parent company, General Dynamics, since 2014. Burns originally joined Gulfstream in 1983 as a CAD operator. Holding a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from Georgia Southern University, this Savannah native serves on the board of directors for the General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA).


“We set out, just a few years ago, to build a Gulfstream for every mission that our customers may have, and create the most technologically advanced airplanes in our industry.”

“I think that, probably, at no time in my history have the benefits of private aviation been more clear to our customers.”

“This is the highest precision [at which] we have ever built airplanes before.”

“Our intent was to create an airplane for the missions that our customers need. As aviation matures around the world, people are looking for mission-specific type airplanes that fit their needs of how their business operates and how they intend to grow.”
