Dassault Falcon Service Completes Falcon 7X Cabin Upgrade
Geneva, Switzerland
5/17/2015


Dassault Falcon Service (DFS), a Dassault Aviation company-owned service center, recently completed a full cabin refurbishment and upgrade of a pre-owned Falcon7X, bringing the aircraft up to the latest cabin connectivity standards.

The upgrade involved the complete refurbishment of the aircraft flight deck, galley and cabin. Work included re-varnishing wood panels, installing new 20 inch wide seats upholstered with the latest BMW design and adding new materials to improve cabin lifetime and enhance passenger comfort.


The centerpiece of the retrofit entailed equipping the cabin with new connectivity capabilities, including a Rockwell & Collins Skybox and a high speed Wi-Fi network that allows passengers to stream HD movies to their personal tablets. The cabin management system was also upgraded, permitting passengers to control cabin features like lighting, window shades and Airshow individually using their iPads. To support these new capabilities, the leather armrest of each seat are equipped with an embedded iPad pocket and a USB port for recharging cell phones, tablets and other personal electronic devices.


The retrofit also included an upgrade to the latest cockpit operating standard with an installation of a SwiftBroadband satcom system and a complete Easy II flight deck. All the upgrades were performed during a 4A inspection, minimizing aircraft downtime.


DFS is ideally equipped to help Falcon operators purchasing a pre-owned aircraft and can transform the aircraft interior to suit their needs and tastes. New interior showrooms enable DFS designers to easily present new cabin features, layouts and details for a maximum of customer convenience.
