Dassault Falcon Service (DFS), a Dassault Aviation company-owned service center, recently completed an initial C-check on an in-service Falcon 7X, preparing the way for the start of routine overhauls.

Dassault Falcon 7X C Check completed

C-checks are the largest scheduled maintenance events on the Falcon 7X and are due every eight years or every 4,000 cycles, whichever comes first.
