StandardAero has become the first authorized independent service center in North America trained to perform wing tank (dry bay) modifications on the Dassault Falcon 50, 900 and 2000 aircraft.
The modification requirement, outlined in recent Service Bulletin Advisories issued by Dassault, is mandatory for all Falcon 50, 900 and 2000 operators and it’s anticipated that both EASA and the FAA will release Airworthiness Directives (AD) in the first quarter of 2010, according to StandardAero officials. The modification incorporates a sealed boundary area between ribs four and five in front of the rear spar, reducing the risk of a fuel spill in the unlikely event of a main landing gear failure due to overloading.
The modification is estimated to take approximately three weeks to complete and is recommended for completion during a C check or in combination with a winglets installation.
