DC Aviation Al-Futtaim, a leading business aviation services provider, has successfully completed its first 60 months maintenance check on a Bombardier Global 6000 aircraft.
The aircraft which is owned by a private customer underwent its first heavy maintenance check at DCAF’s hangar at Al Maktoum International Airport. The maintenance inspection was the largest undertaken by the DCAF team, involving over 2,000 man-hours and adept management of several logistical challenges with the support of local and overseas partners.
