Dassault Falcon To Open Reno Service Center in March

On March 30 next year Dassault Falcon will open its newest factory-owned service center at Nevada’s Reno-Tahoe International Airport. The service center will be housed in a 38,000-sq-ft former American Airlines hangar, which will be remodeled with administrative and customer office space and amenities and freshly painted hangar floor and walls. Dassault will hire and train 18 mechanics for the opening, and that number is expected to grow to 40 in five years. The Reno location was selected because it serves the western U.S. and a market with nearly 200 Falcons ranging from Vancouver, Canada, east to Idaho and south to Arizona. The business atmosphere in Reno is also favorable. The Reno service center will offer maintenance services on the current in-production Falcon fleet, including all Falcon 50 models. Although some parts will be stocked at Reno, Dassault Falcon’s new parts warehouse in San Jose, Calif., will be able to make same-day deliveries to the new service center.
