Duncan Aviation (www.DuncanAviation.aero) recently announced plans to build additional hangar space at its existing MRO (maintenance, repair, and operations) locations in Lincoln, in addition to Battle Creek, MI. On June 14, Duncan executives were joined by Lincoln Mayor Leirion Gaylor Baird and key members of designer/ builder Tectonic Management Group to break ground and celebrate the expansion. The project will apply the latest in green construction technologies to build at both locations a 46,000-square-foot hangar with 32-foot-high hangar doors and an additional 62,000-squarefoot, two-floor wing for storage and backshops. The total expected investment for both LNK and BTL is approximately $66 million. Site preparation for the Lincoln hangar will start in the fall of 2023. When construction is complete, Duncan Aviation will have 769,000 square feet of hangar space and shop, office, and storage areas in Lincoln.
The increased footprint for aircraft projects will require the addition of 65 to 75 team members at each location over a five-year period. Those jobs will include airframe technicians, as well as positions in interior, installations, engine, paint, and the support shops.
“The demand for the safety and flexibility that business aviation travel provides has continued to increase, as has the average size of business aircraft,” says Jeff Lake, president of Duncan Aviation.
