In his new role, he will be responsible for both Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. and Jet Aviation, another subsidiary that General Dynamics acquired in 2008.

Flynn joined Gulfstream in 2001 as a vice president, later become president in August 2011, General Dynamics said in a release. Before Gulfstream, he worked at Stevens Aviation as a vice president.
