During an in-booth reception at the 62st Annual Aircraft Electronics Association (AEA) International Convention & Trade Show in Palm Springs, California, Duncan Aviation was named a Gogo Business Aviation Top Dealer for 2018 for the 4th consecutive year and the 7th time since 2011.

The Gogo Business Aviation 51,000 Five is the highest Gogo Business Aviation dealer honor. It represents the pinnacle of achievement. The award’s name is inspired by the highest altitude reached by aircraft in the business aviation industry–51,000 feet.

Gogo Regional Sales Managers Andy Fernandes and Chad Ostertag presented the award to Duncan Aviation’s Vice President of Components Services & Satellite Operations Mark Cote and Vice President of Sales Mike Minchow.

“It is an honor to be recognized as one of Gogo's top dealers again this year,” says Cote. “Our success is the result of the outstanding teamwork that goes on every day at Duncan Aviation. From quote to delivery, everyone involved deserves recognition for this award.” He went on to say, “We are appreciative of the great support we receive from Gogo and will continue to work together to provide the best service possible for our mutual customers.”
