DC Aviation has opened a new 6,000m² (64,583.5ft²) aircraft hangar at Oberpfaffenhofen Airport in Germany.
At an exclusive reception, approximately 130 invited guests were able to visit the 400m² (4,305.6ft²) VIP lounge with its conference room and spacious crew area. A special highlight was a half-hour flight over the region aboard the Zeppelin NT airship. After an official welcome by Michael Kuhn, CEO of the DC Aviation Group, and Professor Dr Christian Juckenack, representative of Air Tech Campus Oberpfaffenhofen, the curtain fell away to reveal the hangar.
In cooperation with the AeroVisto Group, Airbus Corporate Jets, Bombardier Business Aircraft, Collins Aerospace, Dassault Aviation, Gulfstream Aerospace, Honeywell and Leonardo Helicopters, DC Aviation presented an interactive exhibition of business jets, helicopters and more. Also on display were four sports cars from SSR Performance, including Dennis Olsen’s number 94, which is sporting the DC Aviation logo as part of a sponsorship during this year’s DTM Tour. The event came to a conclusion with a “summery flying buffet” in a casual setting.
“It was a brilliant evening for all the guests and participants, and one that DC Aviation will forever remember,” said Stefanie Kessel, marketing manager at DC Aviation. “We are overwhelmed by the positive feedback we are getting.”
With its facility at Oberpfaffenhofen, DC Aviation is now offering parking for business jets with corresponding aircraft handling and maintenance services, providing each with its own personnel in the heated hangar. This is in addition to 360° support in all areas of business jet operation, from in-house staff and crew planning to flight planning and base maintenance (Part 145). This is all offered 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, by highly qualified in-house staff.
“By opening our Oberpfaffenhofen facility, we are responding to the demand for a specialised business jet operator that will offer a full range of services for business jet hangar parking, handling and maintenance in the Munich region,” said Michael Kuhn, CEO of the DC Aviation Group. “Our goal is to offer our customers from the greater Munich area and those flying into Oberpfaffenhofen Airport with the level of services established at our other locations and for which DC Aviation is famous. This includes providing 360° services by in-house staff, all while complying with the very highest quality and safety standards.”
