DASSAULT AVIATION : Dassault Falcon Service Granted EBAA Safety Flight Platinum Award

GENEVA, SWITZERLAND--(Marketwire - May 3, 2010) - Dassault Falcon Service (DFS) today received the "EBAA Safety of Flight Platinum Award" by the European Business Aviation Association (EBAA). The award is given annually to "member companies that have operated business aircraft for 50 years or 100,000 hours without any accident." Dassault Falcon Service offers six Falcon business jets for charter service from its base at Le Bourget Airport just outside of Paris, France.

"We are especially proud of this achievement. It takes a dedicated long-term effort focused on high standards and continuous training to achieve a safety record like this," said Yves Gueyffier, President of Dassault Falcon Service. "The ultimate goal is the comfort and confidence of all the clients that we fly everyday." The award was presented on the eve of the 10th Annual European Business Aviation Conference and Exhibition (EBACE) in Geneva, Switzerland.

In addition to charter and FBO services, DFS is one of the leading maintenance, repair and overhaul facilities in Europe. The facility offers scheduled and unscheduled maintenance on all Falcons through all levels of inspections. It is part of Dassault Falcon's service center network which has 37 locations: 27 Authorized Service Centers, five company-owned Service Centers and five company-owned Satellite Service Centers. The network is supported by 11 spare parts distribution centers strategically located around the world and a Technical Center spanning three time zones which provide 24/7 support to Falcon operators.

Dassault Falcon Service (formerly Europe Falcon Service) was set up at the Paris Air Show in 1967 and is a subsidiary of Dassault Aviation. Today, Dassault Falcon Service operates and charters a large range of Falcons from its base at Paris - Le Bourget Airport, France. In addition, Dassault Falcon Service is the largest service-center dedicated to Falcons in the world and as such, part of the worldwide network of the factory-owned Dassault Falcon Service Centers.
