In an effort to attract aviation industry to the region, Provo, Utah, has agreed to spend $115,000 in site preparation costs at its municipal airport to help Duncan Aviation develop the company’s third full-service business jet facility, which it initially planned to open there next year. The economy has prompted Duncan to defer groundbreaking indefinitely and opt instead to lease hangar space from FBO Million Air. “It is Duncan Aviation’s long-term plan and desire to build a nose-to-tail support facility in Provo,” said company chairman Todd Duncan. “We will evaluate the market and the economy at least quarterly and will begin preparation for a larger expansion as soon as we believe the timing to be correct.” Utah also promised Duncan a tax incentive program last October.
