DC Aviation (Booth Y134) has been awarded EBAA’s Diamond Safety of Flight Award for surpassing 100,000 hours of safe flying.

“Our constant quest for maximum safety, is at the basis of everything we do. It is the hard core of our corporate philosophy”, said Michael Kuhn, company CEO.

Based in Stuttgart, Germany, DC Aviation was formed in 2007 (from the former DaimlerChrysler Aviation) and has branches in Dubai, Zurich, Malta, and Moscow. Its fleet includes Cessna Citation XLS+, Gulfstream G650 and Airbus ACJ319 jets.

Here at EBACE the company is also announcing that it will add two more long-range jets to its fleet later this year, a Gulfstream G650 and a Bombardier Global 5000. The G650 will be based in Stuttgart and be available for charter.

In March 2016, DC Aviation expanded its operating license to include the commercial use of helicopters.

Meanwhile, the company reported that it has carried out the first installation of an Aviator 300 SwiftBroadband satcom system (and UCS 5000 file server) in a Bombardier Challenger 604 under an EASA STC, under its partnership with Gogo Business Aviation.
