DC Aviation Al-Futtaim (DCAF) has added a Bombardier Global 7500 aircraft to its managed fleet. DCAF will manage and operate the new aircraft on behalf of its private owner. This brings the total number of aircraft under management to nine.
The new aircraft will be based at DCAF’s home base at Al Maktoum International Airport, Dubai, UAE.
The management contract will see DCAF provide full Flight Operational Aircraft Management services, Continuous Airworthiness Management Organization (CAMO), hangar parking and FBO handling at its facility at Al Maktoum International Airport, in addition to providing maintenance services for the aircraft.
Holger Ostheimer, Managing Director of DC Aviation Al-Futtaim, said: “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 can fly an industry-leading 7,700 nautical mile range with a top speed of Mach 0.925 and exceptional short-field performance. It is the only business jet large enough to accommodate four true living spaces, a dedicated crew suite and a kitchen.
