Dassault launch Falcon Airborne AOG service


Dassault has launched a new airborne AOG (Aircraft on Ground) support service, utilising two Falcon 900 private jets.

One Falcon 900 will be based at Paris Le Bourget Airport, while the other will be stationed at Teterboro Airport, just outside New York.

The dedicated support aircraft will be on permanent standby, ready to get parts to aircraft that need them.

Previously, Dassault chartered aircraft for the flights.

As well as fast response to aircraft downtime, Dassault’s new support service will also make alternative travel plans for Falcon customers.

“We already use charter and company aircraft to expedite AOG solutions, but with our new service we are taking airborne support to the next level,” said Eric Trappier, chairman and CEO of Dassault Aviation. “Our large cabin long-range Falcon 900s will play an important role in making sure our customers get to their next destination as quickly and efficiently as possible.”

Current plans call for the Teterboro based Falcon 900 to cover destinations in north and south America, whilst the Le Bourget based aircraft will cover Europe, North Africa and the Middle East.
