On June 17 Dassault Falcon Jet held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for a new paint hangar at the company’s Little Rock, Ark. facility. The 46,000-sq-ft building will accommodate the new Falcon 7X, expected to be certified in late 2006. The shop is already working on other Falcons. Dassault officials said the new building represents an $8 million investment and “brings advanced process techniques in the application of aircraft paint and finish.” Meanwhile, a new 40,000-sq-ft paint hangar is expected to be operational before the end of this month at Falcon’s Wilmington, Del. facility.     o
