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.
By August 2010, Duncan Aviation will open its third full-service business aviation maintenance facility–at Provo Municipal Airport in Utah. The new facility will offer maintenance services similar to those available at Duncan’s locations in Lincoln, Neb., and Battle Creek, Mich., including heavy maintenance and modifications on Falcons, Challengers, Learjets, Hawkers, Citations, Embraers and Gulfstreams, according to a spokeswoman.
Duncan Aviation (Booth No. 5100) announced yesterday plans to build its third full-service maintenance facility. The center will be located in Provo, Utah, and is scheduled to open by August 2010, pending final approval for state incentives from the Utah governor’s Office of Economic Development.
