“Landmark Aviation is pleased to celebrate a milestone that demonstrates our commitment to Dassault service and Falcon operators,” said company president Shawn Vick. “Along with VF Corp., whose aircraft is number 50,000 in terms of Landmark Aviation and legacy Landmark service events, we celebrate the Falcon and look forward to an enduring collaboration with Dassault and our customers.”

The aircraft, one of six Falcons in the VF fleet, is undergoing an avionics retrofit, engine conversion and interior woodwork and finishing at Landmark Aviation’s Springfield, Ill. MRO center. As part of the work being done, the aircraft will receive a -40 engine conversion to increase thrust and cut fuel burn, and be retrofitted with a Collins Pro Line 21 IDS avionics system.
