LINCOLN, NEB. — Duncan Aviation’s Provo, Utah, aircraft maintenance facility has been taking care of customers and delivering aircraft for more than 20 months. The facility is seeing regular repeat business from many operators, so much so that Duncan Aviation recently purchased the building next door to the hangar and is converting the space into shop space for sheet metal, install and some interior work.
“The construction to this building should be completed in late April,” said Bill Prochazka, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Duncan Aviation-Provo. “This will add some limited interior services to our capabilities here. In addition, we are evaluating the addition of some avionics installation services at our Provo facility.”
During its first 20 months in operation, the Duncan Aviation-Provo team has earned original equipment manufacturer (OEM) authorizations to perform warranty work on the Embraer Legacy & Phenom and Bombardier’s Learjet and Challenger 300 & 600 series, as well as line support for Bombardier Global series aircraft.
Since the hangar doors opened on August 2, 2010, team members have completed more than 100 work orders for 88 core aircraft. These projects have flown to Provo from across the United States, London, Hong Kong, Australia and the Cayman Islands.
“Things are progressing nicely at our Provo facility,” Prochazka says. “We have a steady growth plan in place for the next two years and will continue to monitor the health of our industry, the economy and demand for our services. When the time is right, we still plan to break ground on a new facility in Provo to offer tip-to-tail capabilities.”
