Duncan Aviation has expanded its satellite network with the addition of a base in Aurora, Oregon. Situated in the Charlie Hangar next to the only FBO at Aurora State Airport, Duncan’s newest permanent location can serve avionics customers in the region full time. The base operates under Duncan’s Portland repair station.

“Growth at the Aurora Airport has been significant over the last decade, and our techs have spent a great deal of time on the road, commuting between our satellite here in Portland and Aurora,” said John Almeida, manager of the Portland satellite. “With no other shop in the area doing avionics repairs, maintenance, or testing, we’re filling a niche by locating a full-time technician there. There’s a small but growing community, and we have many customers on the field who rely on us exclusively for their avionics work.”

Avionics crew lead Justin Weber, who joined Duncan three years ago after working with a Part 135 operator, is establishing the Aurora facility for the Lincoln, Nebraska-headquartered MRO chain.
