DC Aviation Al-Futtaim expands maintenance capabilities


DC Aviation Al-Futtaim (DCAF) has expanded its maintenance capabilities with the addition of two new aircraft types – the Bombardier Global 6000 and Global 5000 Vision Flight Deck – following approval from the UAE General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) and European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA).

“We are extremely pleased to add the Global 6000 and Global 5000 Vision Flight Deck aircraft to our maintenance capabilities,” said Michael Lindgren, director maintenance at DC Aviation Al-Futtaim. “This expansion is due to increased customer demand and is in line with our plan to provide greater service offerings to our customers. The approvals from the UAE GCAA and EASA further reiterate our commitment to meeting the highest quality standards to ensure that our customers and their assets are safe and secure.”

DCAF can now offer line maintenance support to customers operating the Airbus 320 family, Bombardier Global Express, the Challenger 604/605 in addition to the Global 6000 and Global 5000 Vision Flight Deck aircraft types with maintenance performed in a 61,300ft² dedicated hangar – the only business jet hangar at Al Maktoum International Airport.

DCAF customers can also look forward to receiving a diverse range of maintenance support from spare parts supply, procurement and storage to maintenance and airworthiness certification.

The DCAF hangar has enough space to accommodate four ACJ or BBJ type aircraft of the heavy business jet category as well as two ultra-long range business jets such as the Falcon 7X, Bombardier Global Express or Gulfstream G550/G650.
