DC Aviation Al-Futtaim’s second hangar to be completed by end of 2017


DC Aviation says that work on its second hangar at Al-Futtaim (DCAF) will be completed by the end of the year.

Work on the 6,800 sqm hangar began earlier in the year, and will double the company’s hangar space at the Dubai south airport.

“The contractors have made significant progress and we are on track to complete the hangar in time for the Dubai Airshow later this year. On completion of the second hangar, we will be able to accommodate aircraft up to the Boeing 767 and significantly ramp up our maintenance capabilities.” said Holger Ostheimer, managing director, DC Aviation Al-Futtaim.

Once completed DCAF will be able to work on an expanded set of Falcon 7X services following CAR145 approval from the UAE civil aviation authority

As well as the Falcon 7X DCAF is authorized to complete line maintenance on the Bombardier Global Express, Challenger 604/605, Airbus 320 family, and the Global 6000 and Global 5000 Vision Flight Deck aircraft types.
