Duncan Aviation has introduced mobile AOG service, aimed at supporting the company’s customers throughout most of the western U.S. The new service, based out of the maintenance provider’s facility in Provo, Utah, will be headed by Jake Keel, the lead mechanic for the location’s Challenger team. Keel has attended to aircraft as far away as the Pacific Northwest, when his schedule permitted. In his new duties, he will take on AOG support full time.
“We get a lot of calls from customers on weekends, so we’ve developed this dedicated position for Jake, so he can help customers in the evenings and on weekends,” explained Jason Kinnan, maintenance scheduler for the Provo location. The company plans to add another airframe mechanic and an avionics technician to the mobile AOG team over the next year, but in the meantime Keel says he is ready to go 24/7. “I’m excited to hit the ground running with my new position, assisting Duncan Aviation customers at any time,” he noted.
