Duncan Aviation has announced that Chad Doehring has accepted the position of Vice President of Operations for its Provo, Utah, location. In this position, Doehring joins the Duncan Aviation senior leadership team and will work closely with Provo Chief Operating Officer Bill Prochazka on the construction, recruiting and staffing of the new maintenance, modifications and paint complex the company is building at its Provo location.
“Chad has strong leadership skills, great customer relationships, and helped oversee construction of the newest maintenance hangar facility at Duncan Aviation’s Lincoln, Nebraska, location,” Prochazka says. “He has been transitioning from Lincoln to Provo for some time now, and he is now ready to lead the Provo team through this time of excitement, growth and change.”
Last fall, Duncan Aviation began construction at its Provo, Utah, location, building on nearly 45 acres of land at the Provo Municipal Airport. The company will add nearly 275,000-square-feet of buildings with a 222,000-square-foot maintenance and modifications center and a 53,000-square-foot paint facility.
Doehring is a longtime Duncan Aviation team member, hired in 1994 as an airframe mechanic, where he specialized in Falcon and Hawker airframes at Duncan Aviation’s Lincoln, Nebraska, facility. Since then, he has continuously increased his responsibility with management positions including Airframe Assistant Manager, Airframe Services Manager and Customer Service Manager. In 2017, he decided to move to Provo to help build Duncan Aviation’s future facility there. Prior to joining Duncan Aviation, Doehring worked for Northrop Grumman on the B2 bomber as a structure, hydraulic and flight test mechanic.
“The Provo team is enthusiastic and ready to expand Duncan Aviation’s commitment to quality, safety and responsive service to business aircraft operators in the western half of North America and the Pacific Rim,” Doehring says. “The Provo team is devoted to uphold the consistent high standards of excellence that all Duncan Aviation locations are recognized for; this is why I’m proud to be part of the Duncan Aviation team in Provo.“
