Duncan Aviation’s latest expansion, a 45,000-sq-ft paint shop at its Lincoln, Neb. location, is on schedule to open this spring.

The $10.5 million project includes an extension of the ramp at Lincoln Airport, and the shop will accommodate aircraft up to large-cabin business jets, including Bombardier’s Global line, Gulfstream’s new G650 and Dassault’s Falcon 7X.

According to Jeff Lake, COO in Lincoln, the paint shop will incorporate “the latest in downdraft air flow technology, including automatic monitoring and alarms.” It will also employ Duncan’s new “chrome-free” paint process and will meet the latest FAA standards governing the paint process.
