Crew Chief Blog

By Jean Kayanakis
Senior Vice President,
Worldwide Customer Service & Service Center Network
Dassault Aviation

Around the world and around the clock, the Dassault service organization is constantly on the move, shipping parts and servicing Falcon jets. Jean Kayanakis is responsible for it all and is leading a major expansion of Falcon support. He is very much our crew chief and knows what it takes to maintain a high-tempo, high-quality operation. Jean started his career at Dassault in 1990, supporting fighter prototypes. Over the years, he rose steadily through the ranks, and then transitioned from Dassault Aviation to become General Manager of Dassault Falcon Service (DFS), the largest European-based aircraft service company.

In his blog, Jean shares his unique perspective on what it takes to keep more than 2,100 Falcons flying.
