Dassault Picks Reno For Service Center


Dassault Falcon will build a nearly 40,000-square-foot West Coast service center at Reno-Tahoe International Airport to handle an uptick in business from North America for its aircraft. “The western United States has experienced a sharp increase in demand for new Falcons over the past five years,” CEO John Rosanvallon said in a news release. “This facility in Reno is significant for not only the increased support in that part of the country but also the overall coverage that this adds for the entire United States.”

There will be about 40 technicians and support staff at the facility and it will also house a “Go Team” that provides remote service to AOG Falcons anywhere in the U.S. Reno officials are, of course, delighted with the announcement, saying the new facility will draw traffic from Canada and Central America and generally raise the airport’s profile.
