Throughout 2018 Falcon Aviation has continued to make progress towards fulfilling its core mission to expand infrastructure in the Middle East to support growing business aviation activity.
It is also gearing up to be a more active player in the regional aircraft market too. A shift in its business in the UAE will see its established Al Bateen Executive Airport, Abu Dhabi HQ evolving into a premier turboprop MRO base, supporting the Bombardier Q400, where it has full base maintenance capabilities.
“Business jet MRO will become more focused on our new DWC Dubai facilities, freeing up space at Al Bateen for regional aircraft types, a sector which is also getting busy,” said Nicolas Tejera, Director of Maintenance at Falcon Aviation.
“We are highlighting our intentions here at MEBAA as we will be taking guests over (on an invitation/request to see basis) to our new MRO facility in DWC. It is nearly finished and due to be formally opened in Q1 2019.
The first types to be supported for base maintenance will be the Embraer Legacy and Lineage family.
The decision to specialize in Business Jet Base Maintenance at DWC is very much in line with market demand, said Capt Raman Oberoi, COO of Falcon Aviation, noting the DWC base will grow in significance, complementing the Falcon Aviation FBO in the VIP Terminal of Dubai South facility; and the Falcon Aviation managed DWC Heliport, which runs under its AOC.
Falcon Aviation is anticipating upped demand during December and to highlight its capabilities in the helicopter charter market too it is showcasing Leonardo AW169 Helicopter in VIP layout in the static.
