Falcon 7X: Frame 33 Cabin/Baggage Compartment Door

August 2017

During your next 36 month/2400 hour inspection, pay particular attention to the hinge area of the door that leads from the cabin to the baggage compartment. During a number of 7X-1C inspections, Duncan Aviation airframe technicians have discovered gouging by the hinge spring into the frame 33 structure. This damage requires the door be removed and the damage blended. All structural damages are submitted to Dassault and normally require a radius smoothing in this area.
