"This service has been available for our Falcon 7X customers since mid 2012
and the response has been universally positive" said Jacques Chauvet, Senior
Vice President of Worldwide Customer Service. "Dispatch rates increase and in
the event of an AOG, aircraft downtime is decreased."
The service is available for in-production Falcon 900LX, Falcon 2000LX and the
new Falcon2000LXS which was announced last October at the NBAA Convention. In
service EASy aircraft can have their service activated at any Dassault Falcon
Authorized Service Center.
Unveiled in Geneva in May 2012 on the Falcon 7X, FalconBroadcast enables
operators to address unscheduled maintenance events while still in flight,
with the help of automated real-time troubleshooting tools and satellite
links, allowing the issue to be resolved as soon as the aircraft lands.
Any crucial data generated by the Central Maintenance Computer is instantly
transmitted to Dassault (either by satellite or VHF radio communications
link), where it is automatically acquired, processed and enriched. An email
alert is then sent to the operator's ground personnel. If necessary,
maintenance technicians can log into the Falcon customer portal to access
detailed maintenance reports showing event history, timeline and contributing
factors. The automatic transmission of the aircraft's technical status at the
end of each flight also allows for the early detection of impending failures.
Dispatchability was the key driver behind development of FalconBroadcast
service. It allows ground crews to anticipate logistics, troubleshooting and
other support requirements while the aircraft is still in the air.
