Grand Opening Set for Duncan Aviation’s Expanded Lincoln Facility
Duncan Aviation will open the new maintenance hangar complex at its facility in Lincoln, Neb. with an open house on July 15. A full day of informational sessions, tours of the campus and visits with industry vendors and OEMs will conclude with an evening reception with music, food, drinks and socializing. The event is open to anyone in the business aviation industry.
Duncan Aviation broke ground for the 175,000-sq-ft facility in the fall of 2012; it comprises two 40,000-sq-ft maintenance hangars and 95,000 sq ft of office and shop space.
Chairman Todd Duncan told AIN, “The new facility will bring Duncan Aviation’s Lincoln facility to 660,000 sq ft of shop and work space for services that cover most business aircraft. We decided to expand at Lincoln in response to customer requests and their changing needs. As the industry has continued to shift toward larger business aircraft, a trend fueled by technological advances and increased globalization, Duncan Aviation’s previous hangars have been unable to accommodate the sheer volume of maintenance, modifications and completions work the company’s customers require. The additional space will also let us rework some of our service logistics and create a more efficient work environment. This will help us provide better service to our customers. The expansion has also provided us with the room needed to respond to industry trends and encourage future growth here, in both business levels and employment levels.”
