Offers "B" Level Maintenance Checks
On Tuesday, Dassault Falcon
announced the opening of its much-anticipated new Dassault Aircraft
Services facility at the Reno Tahoe International Airport (RNO).
The new facility is a full-service Falcon Maintenance Repair and
Overhaul location and offers comprehensive avionics, engine and
aircraft support services, including an AOG 'Go Team.'
When necessary, the 'Go Team' will provide rapid mobile response
directly to the location of an aircraft anywhere in United States,
with the technicians, parts and tools necessary to get a Falcon
flying with minimal delay.
Last week, Dassault Aircraft Services (DAS)– Reno received
certification from the FAA to perform maintenance on the Falcon 50,
Falcon 2000, Falcon 900 and Falcon 7X family of aircraft.
At its launch, DAS-Reno is already capable of performing
troubleshooting, scheduled and unscheduled maintenance and
inspections up to and including the "B" level. Those capabilities
will eventually mature to include "C" inspections, according to Bob
Candler, the recently-named General Manager of DAS-Reno.
The new facility also includes an investment of nearly $1.3
million in tooling and ground support equipment. The nearly 40,000
square foot facility will eventually be staffed by over 40
"The addition of DAS–Reno to our service center
infrastructure is a reflection of our long-term vision to provide
the most comprehensive support network of any business jet
manufacturer," said John Rosanvallon, President and CEO of Dassault
Falcon Jet. "The increase in service center capacity will result in
more flexibility and reduced downtime for Falcon operators," he
In addition to the five Factory Owned Service Centers, Dassault
Falcon operators also have access to 26 Authorized Service Centers,
13 spare parts distribution centers and a Technical Center with
locations in three time zones to provide 24/7 support to operators
around the world.
