Duncan Aviation is increasing its dedicated aircraft-on-ground (AOG) teams at its main facilities, the MRO provider announced this week.
In Lincoln, Nebraska, Duncan has assembled a team of eight airframe rapid response technicians with more than 150 years of combined experience. That team will travel either by road or air and bring the necessary tools and supplies to the aircraft. “The team is capable of going on road trips just about anywhere with a moment’s notice,” said Tyler Spurling, Lincoln AOG airframe team leader.
At its Battle Creek, Michigan facility, Duncan Aviation’s AOG team includes six technicians, including four airframe experts, an engine technician, and an avionics technician. The team, which collectively has 130 years of experience with Duncan Aviation, cross-trains when possible and five are FAR 91.411/413 certified, permitting them to work on altimeter system and altitude reporting equipment tests and inspections, as well as handle a variety of avionics AOG services. “The team has three vehicles for road trips, two portable mules, and an Air Data tester, so plenty can be handled without impacting a customer’s hangar,” said Battle Creek team leader Forrest Ferdon.
In Provo, Utah, Duncan has two technicians: Tyson Bowers for airframe AOG and Brad Lindsey for avionics AOG.
