Aero-Dienst Nuremberg has completed the first of two Dassault Falcon 7X C inspections contracted by long-term customer Shell. A third Falcon 7X C inspection, for another operator, is scheduled for early in 2018.
Work on the first aircraft was completed in September 2017. “In addition to classic cabin and cockpit overhauls, we installed a quick access recorder based on a new STC,” said Thomas Opelt, maintenance avionics manager at Aero-Dienst.
Modifications included the implementation of a new Demo Service Bulletin for the fuel tank. Aero-Dienst began planning the project – involving its maintenance, design and modification and avionics departments – three months before the aircraft was inducted.
The company also noted “outstanding cooperation” with Dassault as a success factor. “All three of the participating partners – Shell, Dassault and Aero-Dienst – benefit from the direct and open communication that is required to carry out this event successfully and to the customer’s full satisfaction,” said Florian Heinzelmann, Dassault maintenance manager at Aero-Dienst.
