Dassault Falcon Jet expanded again its Wilmington, Del., facility with the recent opening of a new 40,000-square-foot paint hangar able to coat some of the world's largest business jets. According to the company, the new hangar is an EPA-approved facility, including a virtually pollution-free environment for paint personnel to apply coatings. A lighting system is configured to provide a brighter surface for paint applications and side lighting can be adjusted for proper lighting of bottom surfaces and to control any shadowing effects. "Over the past several years, Dassault Falcon committed $30 million to transform our Wilmington facility into a one-stop, full-service facility Falcon owners were seeking on the East Coast," said John Rosanvallon, president and CEO of Dassault Falcon Jet Corp. "And with this opening, Wilmington is now home to one of the premier aircraft paint facilities in the world."
