Falcon Aviation Services has obtained a second air operator certificate (AOC) from San Marino’s Civil Aviation Authority (SM-CAA) to add to its UAE General Civil Aviation Authority AOC, marking “a significant milestone in its operations.”

Falcon Aviation COO Ramandeep Oberoi confirmed to AIN that this was Falcon’s second AOC. “Under the GCAA, we have presently 33 helicopters and five fixed-wing aircraft. Under San Marino, we will manage four jets to start with,” he said. The launch aircraft for the first customer on the AOC will be an Embraer ERJ 135BJ, which Falcon hopes to use to provide “an extended range of bespoke services and a wider scope of customer offerings.”

Falcon was established in 2006 and has bases at Al Bateen Executive Airport (OMAD) in Abu Dhabi and Al Maktoum International Airport (OMDW) in Dubai. Offers aircraft charter and management, helicopter tours, an OMDW FBO, MRO, continuing airworthiness management, and heliport management.

“Our AOCs enable owners to optimize the utilization of their assets, backed by the highest quality standards,” said Oberoi. “Over the past year, we have witnessed a substantial increase in aircraft management as customers recognize Falcon Aviation’s stability and value our unique one-stop-shop services, which are supported by a highly skilled team of multinational experts.”
