Dubai-based business aviation and MRO services provider Falcon Aviation has been awarded D1 approval for non-destructive testing (NDT) from the European Union Aviation Safety Agency, United Arab Emirates’ General Civil Aviation Authority, and Saudi Arabia’s General Authority of Civil Aviation. The approval expands Falcon Aviation’s services and opens up a new area of business for the company that also provides charter, FBO, and aircraft management.
“The approval of our non-destructive testing workshop by the GCAA, EASA, and GACA authorities is a cornerstone in our continued expansion plan,” said Falcon Aviation COO Capt. Raman Oberoi. With its fully trained NDT technicians, the company is able to offer five NDT methods: penetrant testing; ultrasonic testing; eddy current testing; magnetic particle testing; and X-ray radiography testing.
With MRO facilities at Al Bateen Executive Airport and Al Maktoum International Airport, Falcon Aviation is also expanding its Al Bateen facility to add third-party regional aircraft MRO services to support aircraft such as the Bombardier Q400.
