While DFS is planning to progressively expand its maintenance capacity in Bordeaux-Mérignac, starting October 2016, developing Le Bourget 7X in 2015 was mandatory to face increasing demand from 7X customers.
This is now reality with the opening on November 2nd of a new DFS maintenance hangar (H10) offering capability for 2 Falcon 7X and bringing the DFS 7X total capacity up to 7 aircrafts (not including Ramp Service)
Such increased maintenance capacity, with an integrated organization, will prepare the future DFS in Mérignac. Operating modes and shift organization will train people selected to start the DFS activity in Aquitaine within a year.
DFS is currently performing its 3rd Falcon 7X C Inspection, and 2016 is already getting a lot of demands.
