Posted 1 February 2019 · Add Comment

Provider of global turnkey services for cabin interiors, Trenchard Aviation Group, has secured dual accreditations - EASA and recently awarded GCAA - for its Dubai facility located in the DAFZA Free Zone at Dubai International Airport.



The facility is operated by Aero Technics, one of Trenchard Aviation Group’s four complementary businesses and is one of the UAE’s EASA Part 21G Production and EASA Part 145 Maintenance, Repair & Overhaul organisations.

Products and services provided include repair and overhaul of: Oxygen Cylinders, Emergency Evacuation Slides, Fire Extinguishers and Galley Inserts as well as Passenger and Crew Seats, including the cutting and sewing of soft furnishings. In addition, the facility is an authorised repair centre covering the whole of the Middle East region.

Mr Lassaad Yousfi, General Manager of Aero Technics Dubai, commented: “With our customised services, high quality products and competitive pricing, we are already providing our customers with an exemplary offer. Gaining the new GCAA accreditation will help to boost customer confidence even further.”

The General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) was created in 1996 to regulate Civil Aviation and provide designated services to strengthen the aviation industry within the UAE and its upper space. Since its formation, the Authority has made considerable progress and embarked on bold new initiatives to provide a better service to its civil aviation clients and stakeholders, such as modernisation of the air traffic control centre programme, radar equipment and the establishment of new facilities to serve the growth of civil aviation within the UAE.

The GCAA recently introduced a new award aimed at celebrating the contribution of states, business organisations and individuals around the world to the success of the aviation industry. The aim of the award scheme is to provide a platform to connect and improve relations with Least Developed States (LDS), support the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) objective of increased global connectivity, support the 'Global Aviation Plan for Development' and promote innovation and liberalisation across the industry globally.

Mark Faulkner, Trenchard Aviation Group’s CEO, added: “Our presence in the UAE is a critical component in our global growth strategy and we’re delighted to now have both GCAA and EASA accreditations for our Dubai facility. This can only further enhance our credibility across the whole MENA region.”

Trenchard Aviation Group will be exhibiting at MRO Middle East on 11th and 12th February at the Dubai World Trade Centre. Some 3,750 commercial MRO professionals are expected to attend this event which will bring together airlines, MROs, suppliers, OEMs, regulators and industry experts.
