Falcon Aviation has been awarded new accreditation to handle business jet and regional aircraft MRO at its UAE bases by Saudi Arabia’s General Authority of Civil Aviation (GACA).
The endorsement comes as Falcon Aviation is about to complete on a new MRO facility for business jets at Dubai South, DWC Al Maktoum International Airport, complementing its established MRO and headquarters at Al Bateen Executive Airport in Abu Dhabi. Falcon’s Al Bateen facility is being expanded to become a leading center for third party regional aircraft MRO, supporting Bombardier Q400 aircraft and eventually other jets.
Nicolas Tejera, director of engineering at Falcon Aviation, said, “This is a significant endorsement for Falcon Aviation to be recognized by GACA and we look forward to delivering the same high level of service and support to customers of Saudi-registered aircraft that we provide to our UAE and international customers. We are looking forward to welcoming Saudi operators and private owners here in the UAE.”
Ronnie McCrae, Falcon Aviation’s service center and business development manager, commented, “In addition to full C-checks, we can offer customers line support, parking and hangarage during their scheduled visits to Abu Dhabi and Dubai DWC. We look forward to booking in our first Saudi customers in the first quarter of the year.”
