DC Aviation is celebrating three months of operations for its wheel shop at the maintenance centre at Stuttgart Airport.

    The range of services offered at the shop now also includes the repair and maintenance of the main and nose landing gear wheels of larger business jets.

    Services in this area are currently being performed for the Cessna Citation XLS+, Bombardier Challenger 300/604/605/850, Bombardier Global Series and Gulfstream G650 models.

    DC Aviation said that demand was such that work was already underway to further expand the wheel shop. The company is looking at offering wheel work on Cessna CJ series and Gulfstream G500, G600 and G700 jets.

    “The expansion of the wheel shop is an ideal addition to our portfolio of maintenance services,” said DC Aviation’s vice president of maintenance & CAMO Jürgen Sehne. “By carrying out repair and maintenance work on wheels in-house, idle times can be optimised for customers and costs can be saved.”
