Lufthansa Technik cleans up with perch for travelling falcons

Posted 4 February 2016 · Add Comment

Owners of hunting falcons across the Middle East will find transporting their classic birds of prey on VIP jets and commercial aircraft has become a little bit easier thanks to a new product from Lufthansa Technik.

 “They can make a bit of a mess during flight and of course transporting falcons can also mean having to remove seats beforehand,” said Lufthansa Technik Middle East’s CEO Ziad Al Hazmi, “The new Falcon Master will change that.”
Falcon Master is a novel bird stand that provides a safe secure and hygienic perch for the birds during transportation and was on show at the MRO Middle East event in Dubai today.
“It protects panels, seats and carpets from possible damage,” said Al Hazmi. The bird stand fits onto standard seat tracks, covering the folded seats and with transparent walls that protect the walls and carpets from damage. A removable rubber mat makes it easily cleanable. And once landed it can be be disassembled into three pieces and stored in a lightweight container. The aircraft can hn continue normal operations.
“It is a simple solution, but it is very effective,” said Al Hazmi. “It saves time having to remove the seats.”
Meanwhile the Lufhansa Technik is continuing to expand its business in the region with the development of a new facility at Dubai South (formerly Dubai World Central.)
With the new base Lufthansa Technik Middle East (LTME) becomes the 32nd members of the German family of companies.
“Over the past few months we have engaged very constructively with our partners at Dubai South. The Aviation District has emerged the ideal venue for us to host our new facility. It will put us in prime position as a leader in the aerospace supply chain sphere, and help us enhance value for our growing list of customers by offering optimised technical services, including our airframe related component portfolio which features MRO services - literally from nose to tail," Al Hamzi said.
LTME will offer materials, spare parts, and engine wash services for commercial and VIP customers from both the new site and the existing facility at Dubai International. 
Various technical services will be available at the Dubai South site, such as repairs to aircraft related components including flaps, radomes, reversers and inlet cowls, as well as AOG (Aircraft-On-Ground) 
support via a local material support desk.
