Posted 23 February 2017 · Add Comment

DC Aviation Al-Futtaim (DCAF) has received an extension to its CAR145 approval from the UAE's General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) to provide line maintenance for the Dassault Falcon 7X aircraft type.

With the extension of the CAR145 approval, DCAF is now able to provide B1 (airframe) and B2 (avionics) maintenance services for the Falcon 7X at its hangar located at Dubai South.

“With this approval from the GCAA, we are in a position to offer our expertise and services to other clients in the region that operate the Falcon 7X,” said Michael Lindgren, director maintenance at DC Aviation Al-Futtaim. “We are extremely proud to successfully complete all the regulatory procedures to receive our CAR145 extension and this approval is further proof of our commitment to provide our VVIP customers’ with the highest levels of services and maintenance support.” 

In addition to the Falcon 7X, DCAF is able to provide line maintenance support for customers operating the Bombardier Global Express, Challenger 604/605, Airbus 320 family, and the Global 6000 and Global 5000 Vision Flight Deck aircraft types.

DCAF will further expand its maintenance services on completion of a new 6,800sqm hangar which is scheduled to come online before the end of this year. The expansion will more than double the hangar capacity as well as 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 which can be accommodated at the facility.
