COVID19: Two Dassault Falcon Business Jets to Assist Operation Resilience in France

Dassault Aviation has made two Falcon business jets available to the French Ministry of Defence.

The aircraft will be used to supply logistics and medical support for civilian COVID19 coronavirus control activities, as part of Operation Resilience.

The first mission involving the two aircraft took place on Sunday, flying a team of 26 doctors and other medical personnel from Brest back to Paris. The team had accompanied COVID19 patients to Brest on a special medical train. 

The two Dassault aircraft, a Falcon 8X and a Falcon 900, are equipped for 15 and 13 passengers, respectively. They are operated by Dassault Falcon Service (DFS), a subsidiary of Dassault Aviation specializing in maintenance and flight operations, based at Le Bourget airport. DFS also supplies the flight crews.

Depending on the requirements defined by government authorities, one or both of the Falcon aircraft can be made available to the Resilience unit of the French Air Force's Air Defense and Air Operations Command (CDAOA).

Capable of landing at small airports in all weather conditions and without the need for ground infrastructure, the aircraft enable medical teams and equipment to be dispatched quickly across France and throughout the world.
