LINCOLN, NEB — Duncan Aviation is pleased to announce that two of its Satellite Avionics Shops—one on the East coast and one on the West--have moved into new hangars. The East Coast shop formerly located at the airport in Bridgeport, Connecticut, has moved to a more spacious hangar owned by Clay Lacy Aviation at the Waterbury-Oxford Airport in Oxford. Located about 30 miles from its former location, the Duncan Aviation Oxford Satellite Shop is easy to reach from I-84.
"Duncan Aviation is well-known for its satellite avionics services and its ability to provide a variety of avionics services for operators while at their base airport," says Chris Hand, SVP of Northeast Operations for Clay Lacy. "We are pleased to bring Duncan Aviation into our facility and have their expertise available to our mutual customers."
The address for the new shop in Connecticut is:
9 Juliano Drive
Oxford, CT 06478
Manager Bill Gunter, +1 914.830.4671
“The move to Oxford gets us closer to our main customer base in the area,” says Gunter. “We spend a lot of time working on aircraft in Oxford, so this move is a positive as it puts us closer to our customers.”
On the West Coast, the Sacramento Satellite Avionics Shop has moved about 300 yards to its new location in a brand new, 30,000-square-foot hangar. Manager Bob Hazy has been with Duncan Aviation for 22 years and has been at the Sacramento shop for the last two. He sees this move as a great opportunity for the company, Duncan Aviation’s customers, and his crew at the shop.
“The new hangars that the Sacramento Jet Center invested in will attract new customers to the area. It’s less expensive here in Sacramento than at nearby airports,” says Hazy. “We’re excited for the move because we have state-of-the-art office facilities and adjacent hangar space.”
The address for the new facility is:
10440 Truemper Way
Mather, California 95655
Manager Bob Hazy: +1 303.210.1668
“We are really happy to have our Sacramento and Oxford Satellite facilities up and running in their new spaces,” says Matt Nelson, Manager of Satellite Operations. “Both of these moves are very exciting and have been in the works for a long time.”
So far, it’s been a busy year for the Duncan Aviation Satellite Shops and workaway stations. The proximity of the experienced avionics installation technicians has been a benefit for many of our customers who share hangars, ramps, or airports with the Satellite Shops, especially as the final months tick away before the FAA’s mandated deadline (January 1, 2020) to get aircraft outfitted for Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ASD-B).
