Falcon 900 PPI.....

I would appreciate pms from anyone who can put me in touch with an expert who can do a thorough PPI on a Falcon 900 in the US.
Many thanks in advance.

You should only do a PPI through an authorised service centre. To provide you with added "peace of mind" you should also seek an experienced person to oversee that PPI. Now a lot of that insecurity from your side can be eliminated once you have sourced both an independent facility and person to oversee the job. That again can only be done when you know where the aircraft has been maintained throughout its previous life.

Feel free to PM me if you need anything further. Be careful out there, its a big investment you're making.

Agree with LGW on going to an authorized service center and getting someone with experience to help.
DFJ in Wilmington has been good for us(couple of C checks along with routine maintenance)
Fell free to PM if you have any questions.

Cheers

Grateful for the prompt replies!
It just seemed a bit daunting not knowing where to start.

I'm sending a PM to Ediks on the matter but let me tell you, we recently took a Falcon to Wilmington for a PPI - we were selling it. It was nothing short of awful the way both Purchaser and Seller were dealt with by DFS - never again! I love the way they all down tools at 2.00pm on a Friday for their ritual 2 hour meetings!! Customer Service? Jeez, its almost as if they've walked straight out of Saint Cloud!

In that case don't start: find an experienced rep to help you. Just did a PPI on a 900 and the rep was worth his weight in gold because of the corrosion he helped finding....

I would highly recommend West Star in East Alton IL. I have put a 604 and a CJ2 through there in the last 6 months, with great success. They are very good with Falcons too....PM me if you need a contact there.
