Pierre-Etienne Aubin Named General Manager,
Dassault Falcon Service

Saint-Cloud, France

Dassault Aviation announced today that Pierre-Etienne Aubin has been appointed General Manager of Dassault Falcon Service (DFS), the company-owned Falcon service centers based in Paris-Le Bourget and Bordeaux-Mérignac. He succeeds Jean Kayanakis, who was named Senior VP Worldwide Falcon Customer Service & Service Center Network, at Dassault Aviation. 

Aubin moves up from VP Maintenance Operations at DFS, where he focused on improving the quality of maintenance by raising on-time and on-cost delivery performance. He was also involved in the management of Falcon 7X maintenance growth – an effort that culminated in construction of the new DFS maintenance, overhaul and repair (MRO) facility at the Bordeaux, France Mérignac airport – and development of paperless maintenance documentation processes.

DFS offers comprehensive and customized maintenance plans for Falcon operators, along with a full range of charter and aircraft management services. It also operates satellite service stations in Nice, France; Moscow, Russia; Rome, Italy; and Lomé, Togo, and dispatches 24/7 mobile rapid response GoTeams throughout the Eastern Hemisphere.

“Pierre-Etienne’s exceptional project management and lean management skills will stand him in good stead in his new position,” said Eric Trappier, Chairman and CEO, Dassault Aviation. “These skills, together with his expertise in digital transformation, will contribute greatly to enhancing the efficiency of DFS operations and optimizing the Falcon customer experience.”

Aubin holds degrees from Ecole Polytechnique, the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de l’Aéronautique et de l’Espace, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He’s a certified private aviation pilot and parachutist and the recipient of the For Merit and Médaille de l’Aéronautique awards.
