Duncan Aviation recently announced that we will invest in a brand new maintenance, modifications and paint complex in Provo, Utah, that will be open by the first quarter of 2019.
Building on nearly 45 acres of land, Duncan Aviation will add nearly 275,000 square feet of buildings with a 222,000-square-foot maintenance and modifications center and a 53,000-square-foot paint facility. The new paint structure will have the latest down-draft air flow technology, including automatic monitoring and alarms, to provide the best paint environment possible for aircraft. To increase efficiency, the hangar is designed to accommodate multiple aircraft at once, utilizing a two-zone airflow system. With this design, Duncan Aviation paint teams can perform stripping, sanding, painting and detail work on multiple aircraft simultaneously. The paint hangar will allow input of some of the largest business aircraft in use today, including Gulfstream’s 550, Bombardier’s Global Express and Dassault’s Falcon 7X.
In addition to this upcoming expansion in Provo, Duncan Aviation has invested nearly $200 million in facilities, tooling and new capabilities and nearly $48 million in training over the last 20 years.
Aaron Hilkemann, President of Duncan Aviation, says: “We are dedicated to business aviation, our customers and team members and every decision we make is made with them and the future in mind.”
