De Havilland Aircraft of Canada has entered an agreement with Falcon Aviation Services that will enhance support to operators of Dash 8-400 aircraft in the Middle East and Africa.

 

Under the agreement, Falcon is appointed as a De Havilland Canada Authorised Service Facility (ASF) and will offer heavy check maintenance services from its facilities in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.

Known for its specialisation in business aviation services, charter and aircraft management, Falcon is expanding its MRO portfolio to include base maintenance support for the Dash 8-400 aircraft. The company operates three Dash 8-400 aircraft and provides MRO support to five Dash 8-400 aircraft that are in service with Qazaq Air in Kazakhstan.

“The Dash 8-400 aircraft continues to be a valuable asset in our portfolio, and we are delighted to be appointed as an Authorised Service Facility for the aircraft which has proved its operational capability in the arid regions of North Africa, as well as in the humid, sub-Saharan regions,” said Capt. Ramandeep Oberoi, chief executive officer, Falcon Aviation Services.

“Falcon has been actively involved in supporting the growth and development of the fleet of Dash 8-400 aircraft in the Middle East and Africa for several years, and now with this appointment as a De Havilland Canada Authorized Service Facility, Falcon is in an even better position to support the region’s aviation sector,” said Todd Young, chief operating officer, De Havilland Canada. "We look forward to this ongoing collaboration with Falcon as we work together to contribute to the region’s growing air transportation network.”
