Stuttgart headquartered DC Aviation Group (DCA), the German joint venture partner of DC Aviation Al-Futtaim (DCAF), has successfully completed a full 96-month major check on a Challenger 850 aircraft. 

The comprehensive maintenance work which was carried out at DCA’s Maintenance Service Centre located at Stuttgart Airport, included a full cabin refurbishment, using choice wood, finest leather and plush carpets. Exterior work included a landing gear and wheel overhaul as well as new exterior painting.
