The FAA has granted Dassault Falcon the authority to act as organization designation authorization (ODA) for its Little Rock Completion Center and Dassault Aircraft Services-Little Rock facility. The ODA gives Dassault the authority to approve supplemental type certificates (STCs) on behalf of the FAA and replaces the older designated alteration station method of approval.

As part of the new approval process, Dassault was required to develop its
own procedures and processes for STC certification. The plan then underwent
a thorough review by the FAA. Also required by the FAA is an approved procedures manual and training program, which includes both initial and recurrent training. Dassault is also in the process of seeking approval for ODA status at its Wilmington facility, and plans to pursue parts manufacturer approval and major repair and alterations ODA approvals in the future.
