Working To Secure Additional Certifications With Mexico And Brazil
Duncan Aviation’s Provo, Utah, location announced Wednesday that it is officially a European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) Part-145 Approved Maintenance Organization. The company’s Provo location is working to secure two more certifications, one with Brazil and the other with Mexico, in the next few months.
“It’s important to be able to provide service to all of our customers, regardless of location, which is why we’re constantly working to secure new certifications,” says Chris VanderWeide, Chief Inspector of International Airworthiness.
Duncan Aviation’s other major facilities, located in Lincoln, NE, and Battle Creek, MI, hold certificates for 15 civil aviation authorities around the world and have held the EASA certification for nearly two decades. This has allowed team members there to work on hundreds of EU-registered aircraft.
In addition to growing the number of customers its Provo team members can serve, Duncan Aviation has long-term plans for the Provo location, including the construction of a new facility at some point in the next five to seven years. Duncan Aviation currently leases nearly 40 acres of land at the Provo Municipal Airport.
“We are strategically looking to the future and taking careful account of the current state of the industry and economy,” says Bill Prochazka, Chief Operating Officer of Duncan Aviation’s Provo location. “There has been uncertainty in the past; however, the last year has brought confidence and we are optimistic.”
To prepare for the future growth, the city of Provo began this spring to secure utilities and construct access roads for the land Duncan Aviation leases from the airport. Those construction projects are expected to take roughly two years to complete.
