Just prior to joining Duncan Aviation, he was the Director of both the structural repair center and the NetJets Maintenance program.
“I am very familiar with Duncan Aviation, having working on a number of special projects alongside several Duncan Aviation team members over the years,” said Antignani. “The company is one of the top leaders in the busines aircraft maintenance world and consistently delivers excellent customer service. I am pleased to be a part of the Duncan Aviation team and will work hard to exceed customer expectations.”

Antignani is based in New Castle and can be reached at +1 215.452.3937.
Garcia comes to Duncan Aviation with more than 20 years of aviation experience. From a very young age living in the Los Angeles area, he was fascinated with aircraft, always looking up in the sky, visiting the local library to read about WWII and aviation history and studying current events that involved aircraft. It was during his high school years that this fascination turned into a passion and where he earned his A&P while working as an intern washing aircraft parts for Garrett Aviation.
Throughout his career he has remained in southwestern United States taking care of business aviation operators in many capacities including customer service representative, inspector, regional sales and customer project manager for companies such as Cessna Citation, Standard Aero and West Coast Aircraft Maintenance.
Just prior to joining Duncan Aviation, Garcia was the General Manager and FAA Accountable Manager for West Coast Aviation Maintenance Services. He is bilingual and has a deep understanding of Mexican regulations and customer culture.
Alfredo has been married for 19 years to his wife Maribel. Together they have three active children. In his free time, he likes working on classic muscle cars and inviting people to his house for barbcues. And if that isn’t enough, he mentors aviation students with the Southern California Aviation Association.
Garcia is based in Los Angeles and can be reached at +1 310.975.3916.
