While construction continues on Duncan Aviation’s newest MRO location at Utah’s Provo Municipal Airport, the facility’s 90,000-gallon fuel farm is staffed and open for fueling from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. on weekdays and 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. In anticipation of the start of FBO operations, line services supervisor Bob Cornett recruited team members from the company’s existing locations in Lincoln, Nebraska and Kalamazoo, Michigan as well as experienced technicians from the local area. He plans for the facility to undergo its Stage One International Standard for Business Aviation Handling audit in May.
“We are very proud of the team that Bob has assembled,” noted company COO Bill Prochazka. “We look forward to providing the same world-class service in Provo that has been Duncan Aviation’s hallmark for more than 63 years.”
The facility, which already has new maintenance and paint hangars, has received FCC certification for Arinc, and its radio frequency is now active, allowing incoming pilots to notify the desk team of their inbound aircraft.
Upon its completion in the second quarter of 2020, the location will have 275,000 sq ft of maintenance, modification, and paint facilities.
