Eurocopter, the number 1 helicopter manufacturer in the world, is pleased to announce the launch of a Maintenance Centre with Falcon Aviation Services (FAS), a renowned provider of high level aviation services in the UAE and Gulf regions, specialising in helicopter charter and associated services. This centre will provide full maintenance and revision services for Eurocopter helicopters in the region in order to enhance the support provided to local and regional customers in their daily operations. A fleet of around 650 Eurocopter helicopters is in service throughout the Arabian Gulf region, with military and civil operators.

This agreement between Eurocopter and FAS is taking place following the successful Technical Audit performed last April in the FAS facilities, during which all requirements to provide operators with the highest level of maintenance services were fulfilled. This achievement reflects FAS high level of quality, technical know-how and experience, which perfectly meets the standards of Eurocopter. Both organisations are fully committed to guarantee flight safety, security and quality to their customers, as well as to keep the helicopters operating at their peak performance.

This Eurocopter Maintenance Centre will benefit from Eurocopter's experience in this field of activity, since Eurocopter operates today alone or in partnership up to 100 Maintenance Centres around the world. Eurocopter audits on a regular basis the quality of its Maintenance Centres together with the monitoring of their performance levels.

To further strengthen this close cooperation between Eurocopter and FAS as well as to accompany the growing demand for helicopter services, FAS has decided to enlarge its fleet of Eurocopter helicopters. FAS, which is currently operating one EC130 and one EC135, has ordered an additional 2 EC130s and 2 AS365 N3s. The EC130 and AS365 N3 feature the latest generation of helicopter systems and structures. They offer exceptional performance through the use of the latest technologies whilst enhancing safety and comfort.

The EC130 is a light single-engine helicopter and the latest member of the Ecureuil family. This ultra-quiet helicopter integrates the latest technological advances of Eurocopter. Due to its enlarged cabin, offering 6 passenger seats with enhanced comfort, it plays an important role in the passenger transport, corporate and tourism market sector.

The AS365 N3, belonging to the legendary Dauphin family, is a powerful multi-role medium twin engine helicopter with long range capabilities. It can accommodate up to 12 passengers and 2 crew members in a very spacious cabin. For optimum passenger comfort and pleasure, the Dauphin offers large windows providing exceptional visibility.
