History

Dassault Falcon Service (DFS) was created in 1967, under the name Europe Falcon Service, to provide customers with a level of product support on par with the quality of
the company’s Falcon Jets.

Since its inception, DFS has committed itself to optimizing interaction and proximity to Falcon operators and ensuring that they enjoy access to the best and most complete package of support services available in the industry : maintenance, upgrades, FBO services, training and air charter. Today, DFS is the biggest Falcon support organization in the world.

Its primary maintenance, overhaul and repair (MRO) facility, located at its home base in
Paris-Le Bourget, is the largest in the world dedicated exclusively to Falcons, with seven hangars and 25 aircraft bays.

In 1988, in cooperation with Flight Safety International, it created the Falcon Training Center, also located at Le Bourget. The center recently installed the first full flight simulator for Dassault’s new ultra-long range Falcon 8X trijet.

In 2004, under its present name, DFS founded its first satellite service center, in Rome, and later added facilities in Nice, France and in Moscow/Vnukovo.

DFS also took over responsibility for customer support in Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Asia and beefed up its GoTeam and Aircraft on Ground (AOG) capability with FalconResponse, a portfolio of AOG services developed by Dassault Aviation. DFS operates one of the two dedicated Falcon 900 aircraft used by FalconResponse to support customers.

In October 2016, DFS inaugurated a second MRO center in Mérignac, near Bordeaux, to service the Falcon 7X, 8X and future large body models to come.

DFS operates ten Falcon Jets, including three Falcon 8X’s, making it one of Europe’s largest Falcon operators. Its Le Bourget FBO is regularly voted first FBO in Europe.
