DC Aviation presented its new hangar at Oberpfaffenhofen airport to an exclusive reception of around 130 invited guests. They were able to visit the 400 sqm VIP lounge with its conference room and crew area, and a special highlight was a half hour flight aboard the Zeppelin NT, the most advanced and largest airship in the world.

After an official welcome by CEO Michael Kuhn and Professor Dr Christian Juckenack, representative of Air Tech Campus Oberpfaffenhofen, the curtain fell away to reveal the 6,000 sqm aircraft hangar. In cooperation with the AeroVisto Group, Airbus Corporate Jets, Bombardier Business Aircraft, Collins Aerospace, Dassault Aviation, Gulfstream Aerospace, Honeywell, and Leonardo Helicopters, DC Aviation presented an interactive exhibition of business jets, helicopters, and much more. Also on display were four sports cars from SSR Performance, including Dennis Olsen's number 94, which is sporting the DC Aviation logo as part of a sponsorship during this year's DTM Tour.

“It was a brilliant evening for all the guests and participants, and one that DC Aviation will forever remember. We are overwhelmed by the positive feedback we are getting,” says marketing manager Stefanie Kessel.

With its spacious facility at the Oberpfaffenhofen location, DC Aviation is now offering parking for business jets with corresponding aircraft handling and maintenance services, providing each with its own personnel in the exclusive, heated hangar. This is in addition to support in all areas of business jet operation, 24/7/365, from in-house staff and crew planning to flight planning to Part 145 base maintenance.”

Kuhn adds: “By opening our Oberpfaffenhofen facility, we are responding to the demand for a specialised business jet operator that will offer a full range of services for business jet hangar parking, handling and maintenance in the Munich region. Our goal is to offer our customers from the greater Munich area, and those flying into Oberpfaffenhofen airport, the level of services established at our other locations and for which DC Aviation is famous. This includes providing 360° services by in-house staff, all while complying with the very highest quality and safety standards.”
