LITTLE ROCK, AR – Dassault Aircraft Services (DAS) of Little Rock recently completed an expansion project that doubled the service space to 110,000 square feet at its Adams Field (LIT) facility. DAS-Little Rock can now service up to 15 Falcons simultaneously with more than 100 experienced Dassault Falcon trained maintenance technicians on-site.
"Now more than ever our customers' airplanes need to be ready to go at a moment's notice. Being prepared to service any Falcon under any situation is paramount," says Jack Young, President of Dassault Aircraft Services. "Our factory-owned service center network continues to grow so we can help our operators stay competitive in their marketplace."
DAS-Little Rock is a full Maintenance Repair and Overhaul facility offering line maintenance up through heavy "C" checks on all Falcon models. It also includes an AOG "Go Team" to provide mobile response directly to an aircraft location anywhere in United States with the parts and tools necessary to get a Falcon flying with minimal delay.
The $10 million project broke ground in the third quarter of 2007 and was completed at the end of December 2008. In addition to the new hangar, "back shop" capacity also increased. The back shops handle light refurbishments of aircraft interiors and structures, a task that was previously handled by the Completion Center. A new 65,000-square-foot paint hangar to serve both aircraft completions and modifications was opened in September of 2008.
