Posted 2 August 2017 · Add Comment

Dubai-based DC Aviation Al-Futtaim (DCAF), a joint venture between DC Aviation Group based in Germany and Al-Futtaim, has expanded its fleet under management with the addition of a Challenger 605 aircraft.

This brings the total number of aircraft under management to six including two Globals, three Challengers and a Falcon 7X.

The management contract will see DCAF provide a complete 360-degree service package from its facility at Al Maktoum International Airport including FBO handling, maintenance and air-conditioned hangar parking in addition to flight management, dispatch and Continued Airworthiness services.

Holger Ostheimer, managing director of DC Aviation Al-Futtaim said: “Our facility offers the shortest distance from limousine drop-off to aircraft steps and the highest levels of privacy and safety all of which have been extremely appreciated and accepted by customers and operators.

“As the first and only fully integrated business aviation facility located at Al Maktoum International Airport, we’ve seen continued interest in our service offerings from clients seeking our expertise to manage their aircraft both commercially as well as under private operation. The management contract for the Challenger aircraft is further evidence of our expertise and capability to deliver the highest possible quality standards for safety and service to our VIP clients,” added Mr. Ostheimer.

The company is currently expanding its parking and maintenance facilities with a new 6,800sqm hangar which will more than double the hangar capacity bringing its total land-side plot area to 24,000sqm and apron area to 13,000sqm.

The new hangar will enable DCAF to add two single-aisle aircraft maintenance bays and provide enough space for an additional workshop and equipment storage. It will also significantly increase the number and size of aircraft that can be accommodated at the facility.
