Falcon Aviation, one of the UAE’s leading business aviation services company, has been awarded D1 approval for Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) by three authorities, including the EASA. This allows Falcon Aviation to identify latent issues in customer aircraft and attend to them to the highest safety degree.

The coveted D1 approval has been granted by the UAE’s General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA), the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), and Saudi Arabia’s General Authority of Civil Aviation (GACA).

The approval means Falcon Aviation joins a small group of operators in the region capable of providing NDT testing and opens up a new line of support to clients that was previously closed. Now, with three D1- approved NDT technicians based at Falcon Aviation’s facilities, aircraft owners in the region no longer need to fly testing experts in for essential checks.
