Dassault Aviation has approved Sabena Technics’ facility in Dinard, France, as a major authorized service center for Falcon 10, 20 and 50 aircraft. The facility offers MRO services for business, regional and military aircraft. It is equipped with a 3,324m² four-aircraft hangar dedicated to Falcon 10, 20 and 50 activities, and offers paintwork as well as backshop capabilities including cabin interior services, non-destructive testing, avionics and electromechanical hardware repair and refurbishment. It is staffed by 75 technicians and repair specialists, including more than 40 licensed to work on Falcon aircraft.
In addition to its private customers, the facility is a major provider to the French government and military forces, handling technical and logistical support and line and heavy maintenance for their Falcon 10, 20 and 50 fleets under long-term contracts, including maintenance in operational condition activities.
“Sabena Technics has been serving private and government maintenance and repair needs for more than half a century and is at the leading edge of MR&O technology,” said Jacques Chauvet, Dassault Falcon’s senior vice president, worldwide customer service. “The new agreement will strengthen Dassault’s ability to serve its many legacy operators.”
The Sabena Technics agreement is the latest in a series of approvals intended to reinforce Dassault Falcon’s global network. In 2015 it added authorized service centers in India and Nigeria. Ligare Aviation Engineering of Delhi, India, was appointed to provide aircraft-on-ground service support for Falcon 7Xs, while Execujet Aviation Nigeria of Lagos, Nigeria, was approved to handle line maintenance for Falcon 7X, 900 and 2000 family aircraft.
