Abu Dhabi-headquartered Falcon Aviation Services (FAS) is re-evaluating its planned completion/MRO centre at Dubai South (formerly Dubai World Central) with a decision on its final make-up and format likely in the early part of next year, according to the company's Chief Operating Officer

“The re-evaluation comes to ensure we have a facility which meets the best, current business case. There are two format options on the table and we are in talks with industry partners to assess a realistic business case before selecting which one to go for. A final decision is likely in Q1 next year,” said Capt. Raman Oberoi.
Meanwhile FAS, which is one of the region’s largest executive MROs performing in-house and third party Part 145 line and base scheduled maintenance and repair with GCAA approvals, says it’s now in talks with Gulfstream with a view to becoming a certified Gulfstream Service Centre.
