Duncan Aviation creates dedicated Gulfstream team in Lincoln, Nebraska
Duncan Aviation has recently put together an airframe-specific team dedicated to Gulfstream work at the company’s Lincoln, Nebraska facility.
The company’s Battle Creek, Michigan, location has been running with a dedicated Gulfstream airframe team since1993. Because of increased demand and newly available hangar space at the company’s Lincoln location, adding the additional team was a natural progression.
Newly appointed Gulfstream team leader Brad Kluthe has combined his more than two decades of Gulfstream experience with Battle Creek’s established team’s advice and knowledge.
The Gulfstream-dedicated airframe team will have 15 members with 30 support mechanics who work on other team but whose “secondary” aircraft is Gulfstream.
“This shift to a dedicated team has led to more extensive training and a wider array of tools to support the new maintenance and prebuy activity requests,” says Chad Doehring, airframe services manager at Duncan Aviation’s Lincoln, Nebraska, location.
“We have new and existing customers filling our Lincoln schedule, which goes to show the investment in more space and team members was needed,” said Doehring.
