Jet Aviation recently delivered the industry's first fan case modification on a Falcon 7X from its MRO facility in Basel, Switzerland. The company has received MRO authorisation from Pratt & Whitney to modify fan cases on PW307A and PW307D engines installed on Falcon 7X and Falcon 8X aircraft. It has since completed a dozen on-wing fan case modifications.

The modification involved exchanging the engine ducts to prevent or repair delamination. Jet Aviation provided the service as part of a scheduled airframe maintenance C-inspection. Pratt & Whitney Canada, the engine manufacturer of the PW307A/D engines installed on Dassault Falcon 7/8X aircraft, has since issued a Service Bulletin for all of its PW307A/D engines, enabling on-wing modifications.

“We have developed a strong working relationship with Pratt & Whitney over many years,” says Hans-Peter Amacher, senior manager of Jet Aviation's Basel engine shop. “We pride ourselves on our ability to deliver a premium service and greatly appreciate Pratt & Whitney's ongoing support.”

“This OEM authorisation and industry first is a great credit to our team of engine specialists who continue to lead the industry by upholding the highest standards for quality and service,” adds Cyril Martiniere, VP, Jet Aviation Basel. “We have proudly supported the family of Dassault business jets for over 50 years, and we look forward to welcoming Dassault owners and operators who require fan case modifications or any other maintenance service.”

Jet Aviation Basel has capabilities in all major aircraft engine types, as well as extensive APU overhaul facilities, and is available both on-site and as an AOG service.
