LINCOLN, NEB — The Duncan Aviation engine Rapid Response Team (RRT) network has experts strategically stationed around the country offering services to assist operators in getting their aircraft in flight-ready condition for when their flying activity resumes.
Airplanes are designed to fly, not sit. The longer these complex machines sit idle, the more likely issues will develop, and more will be required to return them to service. Duncan Aviation advises flight crews plan to preflight and conduct engine runs a couple of days before the first scheduled flight to give enough time to address each squawk.
According to Andrew Arcuri, Assistant Manager-RRT, the demand for assistance to get aircraft in flight-ready condition is increasing by the week. “The calls keep coming in. We are busy talking with customers and providing services where they need us.” The RRT remains very mobile and unhindered with travel restrictions. While on the road, they are committed to following all communicated safety and social distancing policies while in customer facilities.
Through the coordinated efforts of all Duncan Aviation MRO facilities in Battle Creek, MI, Lincoln, NE, and Provo, UT, as well as the 30 Satellite Avionics locations, and RRT launch sites, customers can experience some of Duncan Aviation’s airframe, avionics, and engine services at their base hangar.
“We see more and more requests for in-house coop maintenance,” says Arcuri. “Whether airframe, avionics, or engine, we are working together to become an extension of our customers’ flight department maintenance teams.”
