A Dassault Falcon 2000 recently underwent a 2C heavy maintenance check conducted by ExecuJet MRO Services Malaysia at its Subang Airport facility. ExecuJet MRO Services Malaysia is a wholly owned subsidiary of Dassault Aviation.
Ivan Lim, regional VP Asia for ExecuJet MRO Services, said this particular Falcon 2000 was a Philippines-registered aircraft.
“Being a member of the Dassault MRO Network brings strategic advantage because of the close collaboration and sharing of expertise at the aircraft manufacturer’s level on this project,” said Lim.
A 2C, one of the heavy C-checks for Falcon aircraft, is carried out every 12 years. The workscope included extensive removal and reinstallation of the entire cabin, airframe panels and detailed inspections to detect corrosion. For this project, the landing gear was required to be removed and sent to the workshop for overhaul.
“I would like to thank our customer for the confidence they placed in us and also to thank Dassault Aviation in France and the US for the great collaborative teamwork on this significant MRO milestone here in Asia,” said Lim. “The Falcon 2000 is Dassault Aviation’s most prolific aircraft in Asia. We see enormous potential for this super-midsize aircraft in the Asian markets, especially Southeast Asia. Coincidentally, these are markets where we have established a significant presence and reach over the years.”
