The ops specs for Duncan Aviation’s Lincoln, Neb., MRO facility now include Gulfstream service and maintenance for the G150, GIV and G500 series. The MRO provider says the addition is indicative of its steady economic recovery, which may prompt more construction in the near future.

Chairman Todd Duncan told AIN, “When we first announced construction of our new Lincoln paint facility last spring we explained that a larger paint structure would allow for growth in all our business aircraft services, not just paint. Paint work tends to bring airframe and engine maintenance, interior refurbishment and avionics upgrades. The need for more space to house these larger aircraft extends beyond paint and into the hangars where we perform other services. We have talked for a while about a long-term plan for Duncan Aviation that includes additional, larger maintenance hangars along with more back shop and office space. Economic, business and construction indicators have led us to decide that now is the time to pursue these plans.”

Duncan said the new facility is in the planning stages but will likely include two hangar structures and three areas for office and back shop expansion.
