Air Works India Appointed as Authorized Service Center for Dassault Falcon

New Delhi, May 17, 2011: Air Works India (Engineering) Pvt. Ltd is pleased to announce that it has been appointed Authorized Service Center (ASC) for Dassault Falcon. Initially, Air Works India will serve as a Line Service Center, capable of providing 24-hour troubleshooting, line maintenance and inspections, up to 2B, for all Falcon 900EX and 900 EASy series aircraft.

Commenting on the development Nick White, Vice President, GA MRO, Air Works said “We are very pleased that Dassault has selected Air Works as its Authorized Service Center in India. We believe Air Works' commitment to meet or exceed the most stringent quality control requirements - of both our customers and the regulatory authorities - will continue to position us as the leading independent general aviation repair and overhaul facility in India"

Air Works India in Mumbai is a CAR 145 repair station approved by the Indian National Authority (DGCA). In addition to Dassault Air Works is an Authorized Service Centre for Agusta Westland, Bell Helicopter, Bombardier, Embraer, Garmin, Gulfstream, Hawker Beechcraft, Honeywell, Rockwell Collins and Superjet International.

The 47,000 square foot Mumbai service center has 10 technicians dedicated to working on Falcon aircraft, and the company has been maintaining Falcons for 15 years. Air Works India has made significant investments in Falcon specific tooling. And to anticipate the future support needs of operators in the region, additional technicians and avionics specialists will also receive Falcon 7X training. Eventually, the Authorized Service Center will expand its capabilities to include major inspections.

“With a growing Falcon fleet in Asia, as well as increased transient traffic, it is imperative to expand our ability to support our operators, and both the reputation and capabilities of Air Works India fit nicely with this need,” said Jacques Chauvet, Senior V.P. Worldwide Customer Service. The Falcon fleet in India is currently numbered at 20 and is expected to expand significantly in the next five years.
