DC Aviation, with headquarters in Stuttgart, recently obtained C14-Approval for repairing and maintaining the main and nose wheels of aircraft. Accordingly, the Company is now in a position to perform all maintenance work required by the manufacturers, starting immediately. By eliminating the need for outsourced services and related freight costs, DC Aviation can now offer its customers optimized costs and down times. “This expansion of our operating license constitutes an ideal addition to our existing portfolio. We can now offer both those customers who participate in our fleet management program and third-party maintenance customers an additional attractive service,” says Vice President Maintenance Oliver Weiss. Due to the enormous stress, and their crucial role in safety, aircraft wheels require a significant amount of maintenance. DC Aviation is now in a position to perform all of this maintenance work – from changing wheels, via wheel repairs, to complete wheel overhaul. Each wheel is processed through numerous stations until it is finally released in final control after it passed thorough inspection in accordance with globally effective legal aviation requirements. In its special 5,000 m2 hangar at the Stuttgart Airport and its 5,700 m2 resp. 7,500 m2 certified maintenance facilities at Al Maktoum International Airport (OMDW) in Dubai, DC Aviation now offers maintenance and overhaul services for customers operating airplanes of the Airbus-320 family, Bombardier Global, Bombardier Challenger 605/604/350/300, Bombardier Learjet 60/45/40, Dassault Falcon 7X/900, Gulfstream G650/550/450, Cessna Citation XLS and other airplane types.
