    Dassault Falcon Extends Use of Falcon Perf Airport Performance Tool

    Dassault Falcon is upgrading its Falcon Perf takeoff and landing performance tool and extending availability of the software package for Falcons equipped with the advanced EASy cockpit. Introduced in May 2012, in partnership with Jeppesen, Falcon Perf allows pilots to easily calculate takeoff and landing performance and quickly produce associated takeoff parametric cards, takeoff and landing cards and maximum takeoff/landing weight tables. The tool can also facilitate access to operational data based on declared runway characteristics, departure procedure, missed approach climb gradient requirements and other airport information defined by Jeppesen NavData and OpsData services, which are incorporated in the software.

    Up to the middle of the year Dassault Falcon's orders were decent however, they lagged in another department. Falcon business jet orders increased during the first half of this year while deliveries sagged at the same time.

    Dassault Aviation reinforces sales team for Africa

    Dassault Aviation has named a new International Sales Manager for Africa to help meet growing demand for business jets in this vast continent. Olivier Zuber, formerly the company’s Falcon marketing and business development manager for India, will fill this new position. “Olivier’s extensive experience with the nuances of the business aviation industry in various regions make him the ideal choice to develop leads and spearhead new sales opportunities in the emerging economies of Africa,” said Gilles Gautier, Vice President, Falcon Sales for Dassault Aviation. ”His intimate knowledge of the Falcon product line and support network, as well as his can-do attitude, will be valuable assets in meeting this challenge.”

    The new setup reflects the rapid growth and growing integration of the African market, which is creating demand for improved air links to regional and intercontinental destinations. Existing airline routes make it hard to get directly from one African country to the other, especially from East to West, or to reach major business centers in other continents. Business jets help remove these hurdles, as evidenced by the fact that the Falcon fleet in Africa has nearly doubled in the past five years. Zuber started with Dassault Aviation in 2005 at the flight test center and then moved to Falcon Customer Service before joining the Dassault New Delhi liaison office in 2011 where he served three years. He will now be based in the Saint-Cloud, France, headquarters and will report to Alain Lemee and Gilles Apollis, Sales Directors in charge of the African market. A graduate of France’s ENSAM (Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Arts et Métiers), Zuber holds a Master's degree in engineering. He is married and has one child.

    A-PRO Unveils Major Renovation and Facility Improvements

    (Aero Precision Repair and Overhaul) recently unveiled a $1,000,000 renovation and streamlining operation that will enhance the business’s capabilities and improve both the quality and timeliness of service for its global customer base. A joint venture of Dassault Falcon Jet Corp, Dassault Aviation’s subsidiary, and Safran’s Messier-Bugatti-Dowty unit, A-PRO overhauls landing gear and components for general aviation, commercial aviation and military customers around the world.

    “A-PRO has been a part of the Deerfield Beach community for nearly a quarter of a century. To underscore our commitment to both the local community and our many customers across the globe, we’ve made significant capital investments to our facility and processes that will not only improve our ability to serve our customers, but will help us to remain competitive, profitable and successful in the years to come,” said Darren Burge, A-PRO President.

    Among the many improvements is a complete reorganization of the facility’s production flow to improve turnaround time. Modern vertical storage systems free up existing space and make access to supplies more convenient. Upgraded, expanded paint systems are more efficient and safer for employees, while new air handling equipment improves air quality in the facility. Reorganization of work flow in the machine shop allows multiple machines to be used by a single operator while simultaneously increasing job efficiency. A-PRO employs 84 people in numerous capacities, including customer support and marketing experts and highly specialized machine operators and repair and overhaul specialists.
