Dassault Falcon Opens Reno Service Center

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 employees.

"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 added.

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.
