DC Aviation Al-Futtaim (DCAF), a UAE-based joint venture between Dubai-headquartered Al-Futtaim and Germany-based operator DC Aviation, has added a Bombardier Global 7500 aircraft to its managed fleet. DCAF will manage and operate the aircraft on behalf of its private owner. This brings the total number of aircraft under its management to nine.
This latest will be based at DCAF's home base at Al Maktoum International airport in Dubai.
The management contract will see DCAF provide full flight operational aircraft management services, Continuous Airworthiness Management Organisation (CAMO), hangar parking and FBO handling at its Al Maktoum International facility, in addition to providing maintenance services for the aircraft.
Managing director Holger Ostheimer says: “This year, as we celebrate our 10th anniversary, we are extremely pleased to have grown our managed fleet with the addition of the Global 7500. The addition of this new aircraft is a strong testament to our ability to offer our customers the highest level of service, further reaffirming our resolve to put the customer at the forefront of everything that we do.”
The Global 7500 has a 7,700 nm range with a top speed of Mach 0.925 and exceptional short field performance. It can accommodate four true living spaces, a dedicated crew suite and a kitchen.
