Posted 29 May 2018 · Add Comment

Falcon Aviation has highlighted its new business jet MRO facility at its Dubai South, DWC, Al Maktoum International Airport, during EBACE in Geneva.

 

Falcon Aviation’s new facility is built on a total 24,000 sqm plot size capable of accommodating up to four Boeing BBJ / Airbus ACJ sized narrow bodied aircraft for base maintenance.  It includes workshops, interior solutions, a wash bay, and landside office space, plus 13,000 sqm of apron.

Falcon Aviation supports its own and managed fleet of business jets and helicopters at its Al Bateen Executive Abu Dhabi Airport facilities.  But its new Dubai base has been built primarily for third party customers. Falcon Aviation is already talking with existing and prospective customers to grow its MRO business.

“Our goal at EBACE is to meet with the OEMs to see how we can support them and their operators by adding other aircraft types to our capabilities,” said Falcon Aviation COO Captain Raman Oberoi.

Falcon Aviation’s new facility, which has been in construction for 12 months, is pivotal to its overall long-term strategy to bring a ‘one stop MRO shop’ to the region.

It has committed to build the necessary infrastructure to support the region’s growing business aviation market – with a FBO, Heliport (running under Falcon’s AOC), Line maintenance - and now Base Maintenance and Technical services.  Additional engineers have been employed and with the growing business we will be adding more jobs into year 2019 to ramp, its dedicated MRO team.The new DWC facility will also offer 24/7 AOG support and aircraft parking.
