Duncan Aviation Appoints New Business Development Manager

LINCOLN, NEB. —Duncan Aviation is pleased to announce Kevin Miesbach as Components/OEM New Business Development Manager. This is a new position created to strengthen and drive components repair services toward new business opportunities with OEMs, government entities and new product capabilities.

In 1982 Miesbach began his career as an Avionics Technician with Lincoln Avionics. At the time, Lincoln Avionics was partly owned by Duncan Aviation providing avionics support to general aviation aircraft like Cessna 182s and Pipers Cherokees. In 1985, when Lincoln Avionics was liquidated, the corporation was transitioned into Duncan Aviation. Miesbach transferred to the avionics installation department and began working on business aircraft such as Citations and Learjets.

Miesbach later joined the Components Repair team and in 1993 was promoted to NAV / Comm Team Leader.  The past 15 years he has moved from Avionics Shop Supervisor to his most current position of Avionics Component Repair Manager. During this time, the shop developed and gained a long list of new capabilities that includes FMS, TAWS and digital CVRs; NAT communications and audio equipment, newer weather radars and gyros.

“I look forward to this new challenge,” says Miesbach. “I already have a relationship with all the major players in this industry, but now I’ll be approaching them with new ideas and thoughts. It’s exciting being able to commit more time to that effort. My goal is to make sure the Duncan Aviation Accessories and Avionics shops are full with the right kinds of business, while evolving to the next generation of equipment and technology.”

Mark Cote, Vice President of Duncan Aviation Parts Sales, Avionics, Accessories & Satellites, is excited about the potential that Miesbach represents for the avionics and accessories businesses and for Duncan Aviation overall. “With Kevin’s 30+ years of avionics and leadership experience, he has a wealth of aviation knowledge and strong industry relationships that will serve him and Duncan Aviation well in this new role.”
