The Duncan Aviation Calibrations Lab is in the process of becoming A2LA accredited to ISO/IEC 17025. 

Over the last 18 months, Duncan Aviation’s calibrations lab touched more than 15,000 tools while performing tool calibrations and repairs.


Customers can expect their tools returned to them within just a few days. Once a tool arrives in the lab, it is calibrated and on its way in less than 2 days, 1.6 days to be exact. This includes tools shipped in by customers or brought in with a scheduled aircraft maintenance event.


We have the capability to calibrate and repair more than 8,000 different equipment model numbers, including micrometers, calipers, scales, torque wrenches, thermometers, pressure gauges, pressure transducers, air data test sets, multi-meters, milli-ohm meters, megomhmeters, crimpers, dial indicators, tensiometers, frequency generators, frequency counters, aircraft ramp test sets, and more.


The lab is in the process of becoming A2LA accredited to ISO/IEC 17025. Once completed, they will be the only ISO certified and accredited calibration lab in Nebraska for general electronics and many hand tools.

It is a long, detailed and difficult process to achieve this designation. We anticipate the certification in 2015. Stay tuned!
