LINCOLN, NEB. — Two additional Duncan Aviation satellite avionics shops recently received certification from Mexico’s Dirección General de Aeronáutica Civil (DGAC), which is the civil aviation authority for Mexico. This will allow the Duncan Aviation shops in Van Nuys, California, and Scottsdale, Arizona, to expand their avionics services for customers with aircraft based in Mexico.
The Van Nuys shop is located in Aerolease at 7943 Woodley Ave. on the Van Nuys Airport. The Scottsdale shop is located in Signature Flight Support at 15290 North 78th Way, Suite D100, on the Scottsdale Airport.
“These authorizations provide our Mexican customers with a sense of solidarity, commitment and respect for their processes and procedures,” says Matt Nelson, Duncan Aviation’s Manager of Satellite Operations. “We have had several requests from customers with aircraft based in Mexico and we anticipate that will only increase, especially with the upcoming ADS-B mandate.”
Duncan Aviation anticipates upcoming avionics labor and hangar capacity shortages as the industry works through the mandated ADS-B upgrades and modifications. Duncan Aviation has access to or holds 37 FAA-approved solutions for ADS-B, which allows the company to perform upgrades on more than 100 aircraft models. In addition, Duncan Aviation is the only Rockwell Collins-authorized facility that can perform repairs and upgrades to the TDR-94 and TDR-94D transponders required to comply with the ADS-B mandate. Duncan Aviation also has NXT-700 transponders in stock and holds or has access to FANS solutions for 24 aircraft models.
It is important to Duncan Aviation to be able to provide service to all of Duncan Aviation’s customers, regardless of location.
Duncan Aviation’s locations hold certificates for 10 additional civil aviation authorities around the world. The Battle Creek, Michigan, facility has authorizations for Bermuda, Brazil, Cayman Islands, EASA, and Mexico. The Lincoln, Nebraska, facility has certifications for Argentina, Aruba, Bermuda, Brazil, Cayman Islands, China, EASA, Mexico, Venezuela and India. The Provo facility has certificates for Brazil, EASA and Mexico. And now Scottsdale and Van Nuys have joined Las Vegas and Houston as Duncan Aviation avionics satellite shops with certificates for Mexico.
