I recently helped open the newest Duncan Aviation Avionics Satellite shop at the Portland International Airport (PDX) in Portland, OR, to meet the huge demand from the business jet and turbo prop market in the Pacific Northwest. It’s only been a few weeks, but business is booming. The demand for Duncan Aviation avionics work in this area is HUGE! The Portland Shop, located within the Flightcraft facility, fills the large avionics maintenance gap between Seattle, WA, and Sacramento. CA.
We are able to provide unmatched avionics services to this region due to the network and support we get by Duncan Aviation’s two full-service business aviation maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) facilities in Lincoln, NE, and Battle Creek, MI. In many situations with our available inventory, we are able to provide our customers same-day avionics support without the need to wait for parts.
Being located within the Flightcraft facility at PDX has been beneficial for both companies. They consistently send avionics work in our direction and we support their customer base while building our own. We’ve had a great business relationship with them for many years. It just made sense to partner with them now.
The Portland Avionics Satellite shop is located on the international airport at 7777 NE Airport Way, and is the newest in Duncan Aviation's growing list of facilities located throughout the United States. Please stop by or give me a call anytime.
