Sabena Technics Modifying French Navy Falcon 50s

 - June 17, 2017, 11:22 AM

Sabena Technics (Hall 2A, Stand C228) has been selected by Dassault Aviation to modify four Falcon 50 jets that serve with the French navy on surveillance and maritime rescue missions. A hatch will be cut in the cabins, allowing a rescue boat to be dropped. Following Dassault’s specification, Sabena Technics will modify the first aircraft in its Bordeaux facility. The other three will be modified in another company facility at Dinard, which already supports the French navy’s Falcon 50 fleet. The work will begin in the first quarter of next year and be completed by the end of 2019. Dassault and Sabena Technics are looking for other opportunities to work together.
