DC Aviation – Fleet Expansion

DC Aviation operates nine business jets made by Bombardier.


Stuttgart, 14th September 2015: In the 3rd quarter of this year, DC Aviation, Germany’s leading business jet operator, was able to expand its fleet by a Bombardier Challenger 300. The Challenger is a medium-size business-travel airplane that can comfortably accommodate up to 8 passengers. Developed for transcontinental distances, it has a range of about 3,100 nm. Passengers and operators alike appreciate the Challenger as a reliable aircraft with variable deployability.

Michael Kuhn, DC Aviation’s CEO: “We are very happy to be able to expand our fleet by the Challenger 300. This addition indicates the continuously growing interest of our customers in our multi-year experience in managing their private and commercial aircraft. We also perceive an acknowledgement of our expertise and capability to provide our VIP customers with maximum safety and with services of unsurpassed quality.”

In addition to short-range, medium-range, and long-range jets from well-known manufacturers such as Cessna, Falcon Dassault, Gulfstream, and Airbus, DC Aviation now operates nine business jets from Bombardier, a convincing indicator of its specialization in medium-range and long-range aircraft.
