Western Aircraft completes 100th Falcon C-Inspection
Western Aircraft, a Greenwich AeroGroup company, announced has recently completed its 100th C-Inspection on a Dassault Falcon Jet.
A C-Inspection is a comprehensive examination of the aircraft and its systems and is the largest scheduled maintenance event on a Falcon Jet. Western Aircraft became a designated Heavy Jet Service Centre in 2001, allowing it to perform C-Inspections as an Authorised Falcon Service Centre. Since that time, Western Aircraft has completed C-Inspections on a wide array of Falcon aircraft including variants of the 50, 2000, 900, and 7X models.
“We are extremely proud of the support we receive from Falcon operators,” said Western Aircraft’s Director of Aircraft Services Jody Harris. “Our team of factory-trained technicians understands these aircraft inside and out, and that’s why the majority of Falcon operators in the Western US and Canada use our service centre when they need a big inspection completed.”
Harris added that the majority of the C-Inspections Western completes are combined with interior refurbishments and/or avionics upgrades. “When your aircraft is down for this type of large inspection it’s a perfect time to get additional work accomplished. So far this year we have seen many large avionics upgrades performed along with the C-Inspection.”
In addition to its maintenance authorisation, Western Aircraft is also a Falcon Authorised Parts Distributor and an authorized service centre for Pratt & Whitney and Honeywell engines, and avionics products by Rockwell Collins, Honeywell, and Gogo, all of which are commonly found on Falcon aircraft.
