FAS readies for Dubai South line maintenance services

Posted 17 May 2016 · Add Comment

Abu Dhabi-headquartered Falcon Aviation Services is to begin VIP Passenger handling, line maintenance and aircraft parking services from its new planned FBO site at Dubai South on July 1st.

The line maintenance services are part of a phased FAS expansion plan for Dubai South which also sees the company partnering in the VVIP executive terminal at the urban aerometropolis, which has already attracted the support of Jetex and Jet Aviation.

Plans for Falcon Aviation’s Dubai South FBO are moving apace with approved designs having been selected from “a leading Italian interior designer” according to the company’s Chief Operating Officer, Captain Raman Oberoi.
“Work has already begun and we anticipate starting operations within three months,” explained Capt. Oberoi.
In all Falcon Aviation will occupy a 24,000 square metre facility at Dubai South with an MRO Hangar and wash bay. “Our apron and hangar are just 500 metres away from our FBO which packages all the facilities in close proximity nicely to be able to offer VVIP handling, hangar and MRO services in a single location,” said Oberoi. Falcon Aviation is one of the Middle East’s largest Executive MROs and operates, in the UAE capital, an approved and authorised service centre for Embraer Executive Jets currently supporting the Embraer Lineage 1000; the Embraer Legacy 600 and the EMB 145.
And in a regional ‘first’ the company, which boasts a rotorcraft fleet including Agusta AW169 , AW109 and AW189, the Bell 412 and the Eurocopter EC 130, is to offer helicopter transfers from its Dubai South facility to Abu Dhabi and within Dubai. “We approached Dubai South with this idea and they have been very supportive of it,” said Capt. Oberoi. “It’s a sector we see good potential for in future and we hope to gradually build up this market.”
