MRO specialist Jets is to further expand into Dassault Falcon maintenance at its London Biggin Hill airport base. The facility, which 328 Group acquired at the end of 2012, is an authorized service center for Falcon 2000s and Falcon 900s. “In the next 12 months we hope to further expand our remit with Dassault,” said managing director Alan Barnes. Separately, at the same site, Jets (Booth 5546) has recently appointed more engineers dedicated to the Bombardier Challenger 300.

Operations at the company’s main base at Bournemouth remain focused on heavy base maintenance for the Hawker and Challenger aircraft. The two sites employ 30 and 35 personnel, respectively. Last month, Jets also set up a mobile rapid response team for AOG services.

The company is at EBACE 2014 marking 10 years of operation as it enters a period of strong, stable growth, Barnes predicted.
