Duncan Aviation has entered into an agreement with Honeywell Aerospace in which the MRO provider manages the sales, exchange, and repair services for specified Honeywell avionics content, flight controls, electronic flight control instruments, air data, and attitude heading reference units on legacy platforms found on business jets, turboprops, rotorcraft, and regional and commercial aircraft. It builds on Duncan’s credentials as a Honeywell-authorized service center and channel partner, adding more than 2,000 part numbers on nearly 100 airplanes and rotorcraft.
“Our investment in the expansion of our component capabilities and product offerings is just the latest in a 50-plus-year relationship we have enjoyed with Honeywell," said Duncan v-p of component services and satellites Mark Cote.
Duncan’s parts and rotables sales team is now managing the parts sales transactions for the new Honeywell inventory, including AOG. As a result, the team added six more parts sales and customer account representatives. In addition, Duncan built a 1,700-sq-ft parts warehouse for the new inventory.
Further investment from the agreement includes 50 additional test sets, 12 new avionics repair benches, and factory training for eight technicians with more on-site training performed at the Duncan Aviation avionics instruments repair facility in Lincoln, Nebraska. The company also expects to hire up to 12 new avionics technicians in the coming months.
