Falcon Aviation Orders Three Additional AW169 at Dubai Airshow

Falcon Aviation, the growing Abu Dhabi-based aviation services company, marked its biggest ever presence at the Dubai Airshow.  On the opening day of the event the company confirmed an order for three additional new Leonardo AW169 helicopters, in readiness to start a significant new offshore contract from early 2018.   The new aircraft will bolster Falcon Aviation’s fleet of the type to five.

As a pioneer of the AW169 in the Middle East since 2016, Falcon Aviation has successfully logged 500 incident free hours with the popular multi-role Class I Performance medium category helicopter, flying private charters and in fulfilling offshore contract with oil company TOTAL.   Falcon Aviation has quickly grown to become fleet leader in the offshore fraternity worldwide, flying 100 hours in the past month, reflecting an overall increase in helicopter flying following the launch of the Falcon Aviation managed heliport at Dubai DWC Airport this May.

Vice Chairman and CEO of Falcon Aviation His Highness Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Bin Khalifa Al Nahyan: “I am pleased to say that we have enjoyed an exceptional year in 2017 and I pay tribute to the team for their hard work and dedication.  I foresee that 2018 will be an even stronger year with the expansion of activity in Dubai and in particular, expansion into new territories we look forward to confirming in due course. Dubai Airshow this week is therefore an important show and showcase for our capabilities, as we grow our business in the UAE with new partners.”
