Falcon operators attending the World Economic Forum this week have a dedicated Dassault team on site to support them. The company has positioned the team at the Zurich Airport for the duration of the event. The forum, held in Davos, Switzerland, brings together business, political, intellectual and other high-profile leaders to debate global issues. According to Dassault, the event will draw approximately 350 business jets, including more than 60 Falcons. In addition to the Dassault team, three Switzerland-based Falcon-authorized service centers–Jet Aviation Basel and Geneva-based Ruag Switzerland and Tag Aviation–will provide back-up facility support. Dassault’s Paris-Le Bourget distribution center is providing spare parts support for all Falcon models, with an estimated delivery time of three hours. The OEM is also planning similar support for this year’s Super Bowl XLV in Dallas, as well as for the Daytona 500 in Daytona Beach, Fla. Dassault’s team will provide troubleshooting assistance in coordination with local authorized service centers and the nearest parts warehouse to minimize any delays in return to service should an AOG situation arise.
