Dassault Falcon revealed plans to open a Satellite Service Station at West Palm Beach Airport (KPBI) in Florida. The facility is expected to debut in January, 2012. Once operational, it will be capable of line service up through 4A+ checks on the Falcon 50/50EX, Falcon 2000 family, Falcon 900 family and Falcon 7X aircraft. A Falcon AOG ‘GoTeam’ will also be located at the facility. It provides rapid mobile response directly to an aircraft location with the parts, tooling and personnel necessary to get an operator’s Falcon flying with minimal delay.
“Dassault Falcon has made a commitment to expand its ‘footprint of service’ which will allow us to respond even more quickly to the needs of our customers,” said Bob Sundin, Senior Vice President of Dassault Aircraft Services. “And a facility at West Palm is a critical part of this commitment. West Palm has a very high number of transient Falcons and is a very popular stop for our customers from Latin America.”
The facility will have about $500,000 in tooling, equipment and Falcon spares in addition to a hangar, shop and offices for employees and customers. West Palm will join Dassault Satellite Service Stations in St Louis, Missouri, Luton-London, U.K., Rome, Italy, Moscow, Russia and Nice, France.
