ExecuJet MRO Services has announced that it has invested in additional equipment and additional training on Dassault aircraft types. ExecuJet maintenance technicians and engineers continue to be sent from Australia to Dassault Aviation in France and the United States for advanced technical training on Dassault aircraft types.

“We have further solidified our position as a maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) organization owned by Dassault Aviation by investing in more tooling and training,” said Grant Ingall, Vice President of ExecuJet MRO. ServicesAustralia.

The company has also invested in new Dassault tools. “The new training and tooling includes training on horizontal stabilizer rear hinge bushing measurement which relies on the precision use of a Subito bore gauge to check wear tolerances with a very high degree of precision,” says Ingall. “We have also enhanced our non-destructive testing (NDT) capabilities to be able to perform ultrasonic inspection of the horizontal stabilizer, a task we previously had to call upon Dassault specialists.”

The types of Dassault aircraft on which ExecuJet can perform these inspections include: all models of Falcon 50, Falcon 900, Falcon 2000 and Falcon 7X/8X.

“Investing in specific tooling and training to perform these complex tasks in-country positions ExecuJet and Australia as a ‘centre of excellence’ for Dassault aircraft maintenance,” Ingall said.

As of February 2020, the Australian Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) has approved ExecuJet MRO Services Australia to perform line and heavy maintenance on all types in production: Falcon 7X/8X, Falcon 900LX and Falcon 2000LXS. ExecuJet is also approved by CASA to service some of the non-production models, namely the: Falcon 50/50EX, Falcon 900/C/DX/EX/EX EASy and Falcon 2000/EX/LX.

Ingall says ExecuJet recently performed heavy maintenance C checks on two Falcon 900EX aircraft. One is an Australian-registered aircraft used by a mining company and the other is a VIP aircraft operated by Papua New Guinea’s national carrier, Air Niugini. The VIP aircraft is on FalconCare, a comprehensive maintenance cost program from Dassault Aviation designed to help customers manage their maintenance budgets. Only factory-owned or Dassault-approved MRO service centers are authorized to work on aircraft under the FalconCare program. “Air Niugini’s decision to send the aircraft to our base maintenance facility in Sydney demonstrates the confidence the flag carrier has in our capability,” Ingall said. ExecuJet MRO Services Australia is about to begin heavy maintenance checks on two Falcon 2000 aircraft, it adds.

Besides line and heavy maintenance, ExecuJet also provides services for customers wishing to purchase an aircraft. “We perform pre-purchase inspections (PPI) and detailed maintenance record checks for aircraft our customers intend to purchase to help them get an accurate valuation and make the right calls,” says Ingall. .

He says ExecuJet recently performed aircraft inspections and maintenance records assessments for pre-owned business jet buyers. “The business jet market in Australia, New Zealand and elsewhere is experiencing very strong demand for new and pre-owned aircraft. Pre-owned aircraft are snapping up fast, with many new buyers entering the market, attracted by the convenience and flexibility that business aviation offers. In my 30+ years in business aviation, I have never seen the pre-owned business jet market so strong. It’s pretty amazing,” he adds.
