The Dubai Helipark has begun construction on a 461,000-sq-ft facility at the Mohammed Bin Rashid Aerospace Hub (MBRAH). The rotorcraft facility, being built in cooperation with Air Chateau International and adjacent to the private jet FBO, will include a dedicated hangar complex large enough to host MRO services and an expanded ramp that can park up to 12 helicopters, up from the current eight.
It will also feature a VIP lounge and a helicopter showroom. Air Chateau began helicopter operations at the Helipark in 2022.
MBRAH is located between Dubai International Airport (OMDB) and Abu Dhabi International Airport (OMAA) and is proximate to Al Maktoum International Airport (OMDW). OMDW is following a path of phased development designed to make it the world’s largest airport with an area of 35,000 acres and the capacity to through put up to 260 million passengers annually.
The hub is located 23 miles southwest of Dubai and opened in 2010. Adjacent to the Jebel Ali seaport and served by the cargo handling capability of the Dubai National Air Travel Agency, MBRAH is designed as a fully-integrated, multi-modal aviation ecosystem, serving commercial passenger and cargo, as well as private aviation.
