GENEVA, May 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Dassault Aviation recently approved AMAC Aerospace Turkey as a Falcon Authorized Service Center for line maintenance.
"The addition of AMAC is part of an ongoing effort to expand our global service network and ensure that product support is available as close as possible to Falcon customers and the routes they fly," said Jacques Chauvet, Senior Vice President, Worldwide Falcon Customer Service. "The fast pace at which we have grown this network underscores our commitment to provide the best service possible for the more than 2,000 aircraft in service in 80 countries around the globe."
Based at Istanbul Ataturk Airport, AMAC is equipped with 1,500 square meters (16,135 square feet) of hangar, shop and storage space and is staffed by a team of highly skilled professionals with more than 20 years of experience in aircraft maintenance.
As a Falcon ASC, AMAC will provide scheduled and unscheduled maintenance for Falcon 900 and Falcon 900EX EASy series, including the DX and the LX, under Turkish DGCA SHY-145 and EASA Part-145 approvals. Maintenance approvals for Falcon 2000 and Falcon 2000EX EASy family are anticipated later in the summer and for the Falcon 7X, by the end of the year.
AMAC has invested heavily in tooling and spare parts to support its new Falcon line service activity. It has also established a GoTeam able to help customers with AOG issues 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, anywhere in the region.
