Duncan Aviation has expanded its aircraft battery capabilities to more of its satellite avionics shops. It now offers battery installation and maintenance in Bedford, Massachusetts; Morristown, New Jersey; Fort Worth, Texas; and Atlanta.
Those shops join satellites in Denver and St. Paul, Minnesota, that have had battery capabilities for some time. “The primary objective of this new capability is to take advantage of the avionics competencies we've built throughout the network and support customer needs and requests,” said Duncan Aviation satellite operations manager Matt Nelson.
A few more of the company’s two-dozen satellites will be adding battery installation and maintenance services, although the Lincoln, Nebraska-based MRO provider didn’t identify them. Specific battery maintenance capabilities—such as main ship and emergency power maintenance—vary by location, a Duncan spokeswoman told AIN. “The exact repair capabilities do vary by location but can be coordinated through the shops if the specific shop cannot meet the exact need,” she added.
