ExecuJet MRO Services Australia (ExecuJet), a Dassault Aviation company, is preparing for the Falcon 6X to start flying in Australia and New Zealand by getting the right tools and training in place to provide line maintenance for the aircraft.

ExecuJet have been sending their maintenance engineers to France and the US to learn about the aircraft and its technical aspects.

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 – the tallest and widest cabin of any purpose-built business jet – was certified by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and US FAA on August 22.

Grant Ingall, regional vice president Australasia at ExecuJet MRO Services, said: “Our investment in training and tooling for the 6X strengthens our position as a ‘centre of excellence’ for Dassault Aviation civil aircraft in Australasia.

“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.”

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.
