Dallas-based aviation entrepreneur Sean Lynch has founded the Falcon Jet Owners and Operators Association as a way for people flying Dassault business jets to exchange information and keep their aircraft in service longer. Lynch owns MRO-focused business aviation companies Engine Assurance Program and Marklyn Jet Spares and is also the current president of the Love Field Pilots Association.

“Our objective is to provide a way for members of the Falcon Jet community to talk to each other, both in person and online,” said Lynch. “I’ve heard so many operators say that they would like an additional forum that is owner- and operator-centric for sharing stories and comparing notes. We’re giving it to them. Our first step is to track the most pressing topics of interest, so we’re beginning by polling the owner/operator community.”

He added that the new organization plans to work in collaboration with Dassault Falcon and is not meant to be a replacement for factory technical or troubleshooting support. Lynch said he eventually plans to hold gatherings at larger events such as regional forums and conventions and ultimately hopes to organize its own destination event with fly-ins, a static display, breakout sessions, and sponsor exhibits.
