Dassault Falcon will set up a new operation in Shanghai to help support its rapidly growing Chinese fleet. The new entity, to be known as Dassault Falcon Aircraft Services–China, will be established by the end of the second quarter of 2012 in partnership with Shanghai Hawker Pacific and will be located within the Shanghai Hawker Pacific complex at Shanghai's Hongqiao International Airport. Dassault Falcon Aircraft Services–China will play a key role in ensuring first-class support for the Falcon fleet that is expected to triple by the end of 2012. The unit will be staffed by a team of technicians with an average experience of more than 10 years working with Falcon business jets. The technicians are specially trained on Falcon 7X, Falcon 2000LX, and Falcon 900LX models. Line maintenance, AOG support, troubleshooting, and component replacement will be among the services offered. The Shanghai Hawker Pacific complex features a 4000-m² facility for maintenance, repair, and overhaul, in addition to its fixed-base operations capabilities. It was the first third-party MRO facility in mainland China and is a joint partnership with the Shanghai Airports Authority.
