Dassault Falcon Service Offers a Second Life To a Heavily Damaged Falcon

In December 2017, a parked Falcon 7X at a remote airport, in Malta, was blown from its position by strong winds, sending the aircraft crashing into a nearby building. The front section of the aircraft sustained severe damage.

The owner of the aircraft selected Dassault Falcon Service(DFS) in April 2018 to perform an on-site repair. DFS was tasked with a full renewal of the aircraft, which required replacement of all damaged parts (i.e. frame, skin, cockpit arches, etc.). Repairs commenced in September 2018; by May 2019, the aircraft was back in the air to be ferried to a service center for its 36-month maintenance check before receiving authorization for final release for service.

With the assistance of Dassault Aviation factories (at Argenteuil and Seclin, France), DFS successfully completed its most extensive structural repair project ever.
