[Avionics Today 03-31-2015] Dassault Falcon Service (DFS) service center has completed an initial C-check on an in-service Falcon 7X, preparing the way for the start of routine overhauls. The inspection, carried out at DFS's Paris/Le Bourget facility will involve renovating the interior, repainting the exterior and installing a satcom unit and high speed Wi-Fi system.
C-checks are the largest scheduled maintenance events on the Falcon 7X and are due every eight years or every 4,000 cycles, whichever comes first. A second DFS 7X visit, including a full cabin renovation and an installation of an EVS in addition to overhaul work, is already underway with others scheduled to follow by midyear.
