“Caring for an Aircraft’s Legs: Explaining Bombardier Challenger and Global Express Landing Gear Restoration Uncertainties,” the latest informational document produced by Duncan Aviation, answers questions regarding Challenger and Global Express landing-gear work.

“We are constantly asked about time tables, pricing, what to expect, what the customer needs to provide and how we determine whether to repair or replace a part or the entire gear. To help customers better understand the process we put this guide together,” said Karl Detweiler, business development and marketing manager at Duncan Aviation’s Lincoln, Neb., facility.

“Any shop that has received an OEM maintenance manual or component overhaul manual and follows FAA standards is free to advertise that it can inspect and overhaul aircraft landing gear, but there are many additional service and capability requirements related to landing-gear maintenance that can cut expenses and downtime that can’t be found at every aircraft landing-gear shop,” he said.
