It's all go for Go Aviation Middle East

Posted 6 December 2016 · Add Comment

Go Aviation Middle East arrived in Dubai from the US in 2013 providing its full service aircraft appearance and aviation services to region.

“The weather in the Middle East is very tough on aircraft, from the strong sun to the battering aircraft take from desert sand. We knew that our experience in working in varying weather conditions would prove to be very valuable here,” said CEO Dennis Cruz.

The company introduced its dry wash to the region upon opening and showed that a wet wash wasn’t what was needed in the Middle East.

“A typical frequent wet wash for a Hawker 800 will utilise approximately 1,000 litres of fresh water, whereas dry washing will require less than eight litres of water to clean the same aircraft,” said Cruz.

However, the company has now come up with an even better alternative for the region called the hybrid wash. 

“We have taken the dry wash and wet wash and blended it and coined it the hybrid wash,” said Cruz. “The hybrid gives what the aircraft needs on the flat service and crown – it provides a rinse of all the environmental fallout. All the corrosion on sensitive areas such as the belly, landing gear and everything under the wings needs the dry wash.”

After three years, the company has grown massively in the UAE with services at DXB, DWC, Al Bateen and Sharjah. 

“We service for aircraft up to Jumbo Jets, added VP, Marc Lelah. 

“As well as having a fleet of 8,000 litre trucks to service all over the UAE, we service every MRO and every FBO at those airports. We are the first independent company to sign a contract with Emirates for aircraft appearance. Nobody has this equipment.” 

And now the company is expanding within the Middle East. It announced at MEBAA, while in-between taking care of aircraft at the show, that it has opened branches in Saudi Arabia. 

“We have finally found the right local partner in Saudi Arabia that shares our vision,” said Cruz. “One branch is in Riyadh at the Business Gate, and one in Jeddah. 

“We signed our off-shore agreement in March this year and will start operating in the first quarter of 2017.

“We serve a lot of Saudis and it makes sense to service on their own soil. It also shows we are happy to make the step and go to customers in Saudi. It’s great to have our flagpole in the ground there.”
