FARNBOROUGH, England, July 21, 2010 - Dassault Falcon enrolled today its 100th FalconCare(R)
customer in the guaranteed maintenance cost program for Falcon aircraft. The
100th customer, Abelag Aviation, is a well known FBO, aircraft management,
charter and maintenance provider with four facilities in Belgium and France.
Their managed fleet includes a 2000EX EASy, a 2000LX, and a 7X - to be
delivered soon, all of which are enrolled in FalconCare(R).
First introduced in 2005, FalconCare(R) is designed to
guarantee predictability in the budgeting process, which makes owning and
operating a Falcon easier and more efficient. The program guarantees
predictability for a flight department's budget plan by providing fixed costs
for all scheduled and unscheduled maintenance and routine inspections based
upon flight activity. Today, half of all new Falcon aircraft sold are
enrolled in FalconCare(R).
"Being able to predictably forecast our maintenance costs with
FalconCare(R) has made our Falcons the most efficient tools in our fleet,"
said Herve Laitat, General Manager of Abelag Aviation. "The program is also
very convenient for us in that we can utilize any facility in Dassault's
worldwide service center network."
All Airworthiness Directives and Dassault Service Bulletins
that enhance dispatch reliability are included under the FalconCare(R)
program. In addition, it covers the cost of all operational and maintenance
documentation. Falcon operators enrolled in the program can also get
discounts on all pilot and maintenance training with Dassault's training
provider, CAE SimuFlite.
Operators enrolled in FalconCare(R) have the option of adding
coverage for all shipping and freight for spare parts as well as AOG support
services, which guarantees the coverage of all costs to return an aircraft to
service, anywhere in the world.
