The agreement is for a 900 sqm workshop and office premises in the Supplier Complex, which is located opposite to the main gate of DWC Airport.


The new facility will provide a full interiors repair, overhaul or production facility delivering the full scope of soft furnishings, carpentry and ancillary work for Business Jets that are currently undertaken by Aero Design France in their Part 145 / 21G Le Bourget facility.

The outfitting of this facility is currently in progress with the facility expected to be ready for EASA inspection during Q3 2022, with the operational inception date to be after EASA standards have been met.

The airside premises provided by Liberty Aviation DWC - LLC offers facilities in which running repairs will be completed so that the aircraft can remain in service to the requirements of the operator. Items requiring minor repairs by specialist expertise will be repaired in situ on board the aircraft during an overnight stay where possible. Alternatively, small items needing some extra attention or which are impractical to repair in-situ may be removed and repaired in this airside facility with minimal delay.

AeroDesign France will also use this airside facility in order to initiate an EASA Line Station extension based on their Le Bourget Paris Part 145 / 21G approval. This Line Station will begin with a limited scope of work and is expected to be operational during the second quarter of 2022.

Marc Lelah, CEO of Liberty Aviation DWC – LLC said, “We are very excited with the progress we have been able to achieve since announcing this project during the Dubai Airshow 2021. The partnership feels like a natural progression for Liberty Aviation. We have striven for excellence when detailing your Business Aircraft interior and exterior and now stand on the brink of also offering you smart repairs between airframe maintenance stops or full-service repairs during such maintenance stops with any of your preferred maintenance providers in the UAE.”

“The acquisition of these neutral facilities strategically positioned near to and inside the perimeter of DWC Airport will allow Aero Design DWC -LLC the opportunity to showcase our high-quality production pedigree to the wider Business Aviation community”, says Mikael Bodson. “While we are optimistic regarding a timeline to offer our services, we are also honest with ourselves regarding the preparations required to offer the best levels of service from the point of announcing to the market that we are ready to do so.”

Liberty Aviation DWC – LLC is currently offering disinfection, standard and deep interior cleaning services as well as specialist leather cleaning services. Exterior wet and dry washing together with paint and / or brightwork polishing services are also on offer throughout the UAE’s airports. Liberty Aviation is also present in Los Angeles, California with a similar service offering.
