LINCOLN, NEB. — Duncan Aviation is pleased to announce an agreement with Raytheon Aircraft Company whereby Duncan Aviation will be the exclusive agent for Raytheon Aircraft Parts Inventory and Distribution (RAPID) to repair, overhaul, test and provide inventory logistics in support of the RAPID rotables program for Hawker landing gear. The agreement covers the following Hawker models: 1A thru 700, 800, 800XP & 1000. For logistical purposes, inventory will now be centrally located at Duncan Aviation’s Lincoln, Nebraska, facility.
