Hawker Pa­cific picked as Fal­con ser­vice cen­tre

New Straits Times - - News -

LANGKAWI: French busi­ness jet man­u­fac­turer Das­sault Avi­a­tion yes­ter­day an­nounced that Hawker Pa­cific in Subang had been cho­sen as Fal­con busi­ness jets’ au­tho­rised ser­vice cen­tre (ASC).

Malaysia was Das­sault Fal­con’s largest mar­ket in South­east Asia and the de­ci­sion was proof of Malaysia’s grow­ing sta­tus in the re­gion as a cen­tre for air­craft main­te­nance, re­pair and over­haul, the com­pany said.

The fa­cil­ity in Malaysia has been ap­proved to be used as an ASC for Fal­con 8X, Fal­con 7X, Fal­con 2000 EX Easy and Fal­con 900 EX Easy se­ries air­craft.

Das­sault Avi­a­tion se­nior vice-pres­i­dent (world­wide cus­tomer ser­vice) Jac­ques Chau­vet said it was im­por­tant to strengthen its global ASC to pro­vide sup­port for its cus­tomers.

“Strength­en­ing our global ASC net­work is vi­tal to Das­sault Avi­a­tion’s com­mit­ment to pro­vide top-notch lo­cal sup­port for all Fal­con cus­tomers, as ev­i­denced by re­cent surveys that place the qual­ity of Das­sault sup­port ser­vices at the top of the in­dus­try.

“We are confident that Hawker Pa­cific’s ex­cel­lent ser­vice record and ex­em­plary safety stan­dards will max­imise cus­tomer sat­is­fac­tion for South­east Asian op­er­a­tors,” he said.

Main­te­nance ap­provals for the hub are ex­pected by mid-year.

In ad­di­tion to main­te­nance ser­vices, the fa­cil­ity can han­dle re­pair and over­haul, retrofits, mod­i­fi­ca­tions and up­grades, as well as ac­com­mo­date Air­craft-On­Ground sup­port all day, in­clud­ing a “Go team” com­plete with ap­pro­pri­ate tool­ing and equip­ment.
