ExecuJet MRO Services Australia (ExecuJet) is investing in tooling and training to be ready to provide line maintenance for Dassault’s new flagship, the Falcon 6X, flying into Australia and New Zealand.
ExecuJet has been sending maintenance engineers from Australia to Dassault in France and the US for type-rating and technical training on the aircraft. Other technicians have been trained by Pratt & Whitney Canada’s approved training organisation in the US on the PW812D engines that power the aircraft. The Falcon 6X was certified by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and US FAA on 22 August. The entry-into-service of the Falcon 6X is now imminent.
‘Centre of excellence’
“Our investment in training and tooling for the 6X strengthens our position as a ‘centre of excellence’ for Dassault Aviation civil aircraft in Australasia,” said Grant Ingall, Regional VP Australasia at ExecuJet MRO Services.
“The tooling we are investing in includes the specific ones for the Falcon 6X airframe and PW812D engines. We have also applied for certification from the relevant civil aviation regulators, such as the US FAA, to be approved to do line maintenance on this new aircraft type,” adds Ingall.
