ExecuJet MRO Services Australia Prepares For Entry Into Service of Falcon 6X
Sydney (31 August 2023) – ExecuJet MRO Services Australia (ExecuJet), a Dassault Aviation company, prepares for the Falcon 6X by investing in tooling and training to be ready to provide line maintenance to the new Dassault’s flagship 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. Just certified, the entry-into-service of the Falcon 6X is imminent.
“Our investment in training and tooling for the 6X strengthens our position as a ‘centre of excellence’ for Dassault Aviation civil aircraft in Australasia,” says 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 are also applying 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.
The Falcon 6X, about to enter into service, is the tallest and widest cabin of any purpose-built business jet.
ExecuJet MRO Services Australia has over 80 personnel and plans to add more engineers and technicians, including some already certified to work on Dassault aircraft.
