Dassault Falcon is ramping up its aftersales infrastructure in its fastest-growing market, adding Hawker Pacific in Shanghai as an authorized service center. The facility - at Hongqiao international airport - is scheduled to receive its Part 145 repair station certification from the US and Chinese authorities by the end of next year. The airframer has also established a sales and marketing office in Beijing.
Meanwhile, in another expanding region, Jeddah-based Saudi Private Aviation Engineering and Maintenance has become a line service center in the Middle East. There are 50 Falcons in the region and Dassault expects to deliver another 25 in the next three years.
