FalconCare offers new options
Dassault Aviation has signed the 500th contract for its FalconCare guaranteed maintenance programme and further expanded the comprehensive programme to meet a broader range of customer needs and budgets.
Introduced in 2005, FalconCare offers a full range of scheduled and unscheduled maintenance services through C-Check, including airframe, avionics and landing gear parts, labour, consumables, service bulletins and maintenance tracking. This comprehensive coverage ensures predictable and stable annual maintenance costs for operators of Falcon aircraft. It provides maintenance coverage everywhere on the planet through more than 60 Dassault Owned and Authorised Service Centres and 16 Falcon Spares distribution centres.
“FalconCare provides three benefits,” says Jean Kayanakis, Senior Vice President, Worldwide Falcon Customer Service & Service Center Network. “It guarantees a predictable budget, it offers peace of mind by eliminating unexpected maintenance costs, and it helps enhance aircraft value, as demonstrated by valuations in the aircraft Bluebook price guide.”
The new programme expansion, based on feedback from flight departments and the Falcon Operator Advisory Board, enhances the flexibility of the pay-as-you-go Falcon Care service by offering operators two different levels of coverage, in accordance with their actual maintenance requirements: FalconCare Essential and FalconCare Elite.
Each plan includes a FalconCare Efficiency Bonus, which financially rewards operators engaging in the most cost-effective maintenance practices. And both allow operators to establish a Flex Spending Account for miscellaneous costs outside FalconCare coverage.
