Aero-Dienst Nuremberg has completed the first of three Dassault Falcon 7X C-check inspections.

The service and maintenance company has completed the C-check for its customer Shell. The aircraft has undergone extensive modifications such as the implementation of a new demo service bulletin (SB) for the fuel tank.

A second C-check inspection is planned for another Shell 7x. A third 7x C-check scheduled for an unannounced operator at the beginning of 2018.

Thomas Opelt, maintenance avionics manager at Aero-Dienst said: “In addition to classic cabin and cockpit overhauls, we installed a quick access recorder (QAR) based on a new STC.”

“We do this professionally and to the highest possible quality standards. And this includes the strict HSSE requirements (Health, Safety, Security, Environment), ensuring that we discharge our obligations as a responsible employer,” added Florian Heinzelmann, Dassault maintenance manager at Aero-Dienst.

Aero-Dienst planned the work on the aircraft well in advance involving maintenance planning, design and modification and avionics as early as three months before the Falcon 7X arrived.

Heinzelmann continued:  “Basically, 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.”
