India approves ExecuJet in Dubai for earlier Falcon 2000s
Around half of all Dassault business jets registered in India are Falcon 2000 Classics. ExecuJet's latest approval from the DGCA adds this model to its list of line and base maintenance capabilities.
ExecuJet MRO Services Middle East has received approval from India’s DGCA to perform line and base maintenance on Falcon 2000 ‘Classic’ aircraft.

ExecuJet MRO Services Middle East has received approval from India's Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) to perform line and base maintenance on Falcon 2000 'Classic' aircraft.

The 'Classic' refers to the first model of Falcon 2000, which is equipped with a Collins Proline 4 avionics system and powered by CFE738 engines. CFE was a joint-venture between General Electric and AlliedSignal (now Honeywell).

ExecuJet MRO Services' Middle East facility is already approved by India's DGCA to work on various types of aircraft registered in India such as the Falcon 7X, Falcon 8X, Falcon 900C/EX/EASy and Falcon 2000EASy models.

“India is a very big and growing market for Dassault Aviation and also a very important market for ExecuJet, thanks to its geographic proximity,” says regional VP Middle East Nick Weber. “Dubai is a short flight away from India, and India-registered aircraft are regular visitors for business and tourism. This latest approval enables ExecuJet to better support all Indian Falcon customers operating within the region.”

Besides India DGCA, the company holds comprehensive approvals from the FAA, EASA, UAE General Civil Aviation Authority and other national aviation authorities to work on Falcon aircraft and other aircraft types.

ExecuJet commenced operations in Dubai more than 20 years ago and is currently building a new 15,000 sqm MRO facility at Al Maktoum International airport that includes a large hangar as well as adjacent workshops and offices. The company will be moving its base maintenance capability there from its current base at Dubai International airport, although it will retain AOG capability at the latter.

ExecuJet MRO Services, a Dassault Aviation owned company, is a factory service centre for all in-production Dassault Falcon aircraft. It also provides line and base maintenance for Bombardier, Embraer Executive Jets and nearly all types of Hawker business jets.
