The first issues of the Duncan Debrief were produced in a tabloid format with a distribution of 10,000.
In April of 1993, the premiere issue of the Duncan Debrief was published. Inside J. Robert Duncan, Duncan Aviation’s CEO at the time, described the quarterly tabloid magazine as “one of those rare newsletters that is to the point, packed full of useful information and always worth reading."
The Debrief’s mission was to deliver advice and guidance on the operation and care of a business aircraft through short articles written by the aviation experts at Duncan Aviation. It featured articles about our growing capabilities, team members and Core Values.
This year the Duncan Debrief turns 21. It doesn’t look anything like the early editions, but one thing has never changed...its mission. The Debrief continues to deliver relevant information with feature stories about cutting-edge innovation, customer relationships and testimonies.
It remains our flagship publication and one of the most-trusted and best-read business aviation publications available. We've been told by many Directors of Maintenance that it is required reading in their flight departments.
And it is still written and designed in-house by Duncan Aviation’s aviation experts.
