The launch of the wheel shop will enable DCAF to provide services on a range of aircraft wheels including Challenger 604/605/650, Global Express and Global 7500 with plans to expand the scope of services to also cover Challenger 850, 300/350 and Airbus A320 Series in addition to other maintenance requests.
Chris Rosewarne, Maintenance Manager at DC Aviation Al-Futtaim, said: “The launch of the wheel shop perfectly complements our existing maintenance portfolio. The wheel shop will allow us to provide full wheel and tyre services to our customers at competitive pricing and improve turn around times.
“We are also investing in our technicians and support staff to increase our overall capacity allowing DCAF to handle larger maintenance inspections and or multiple projects. We also plan to increase support capability for the Airbus 320 series as well as building on our Challenger 604 Series and Global Express capability,” he added.
As part of the requirement for the wheels shop, DCAF obtained its EASA approvals last month. The company is audited by the German Luftfahrt-Bundesamt (LBA) and is authorized to issue an EASA Form 1.
