Duncan Aviation Significantly Increases Engine Rental Pool Size
Lincoln, Nebraska — To meet increased demand from engine customers, Duncan Aviation increased its available pool of rental turbine engines by 33% in 2017. This pool now includes several rental engines for the following engine models: HTF7000, HTF7350 and TFE731 (-2C, -3, -5B, -20, -40, and -60).
James Prater, Manager of Turbine Engine Services, says Duncan Aviation’s recent growth in engine capabilities and authorizations have increased customer demand for engine services, requiring the purchase of additional engines to use as customer rentals. “Customers want to be able to continue to fly while their engines are with us for CZIs (Core Zone Inspections),” says Prater. “Through our extended engine pool and other rental engines that we have access to, we are prepared to help them locate a rental and continue their missions.”
Over the last two years, Duncan Aviation’s Turbine Engine Services have experienced major change. In October of 2015, the company worked with Honeywell Aerospace to receive an extension to its engine service authorizations designating its Lincoln, Nebraska, location as a Honeywell AS907 (HTF 7000) Series Minor Maintenance facility. One year later, in October 2016, the Lincoln location’s authorization was further expanded when it was named a Honeywell TFE731 Heavy service facility. Duncan Aviation has been performing Major Periodic Inspections on TFE731 engines for decades. The new authorization allows the company to perform engine Core Zone Inspections and Repairs at its facility.
“The new overhaul authorization has been met with much industry excitement,” Prater says. “And the first few engines have performed well above maintenance manual requirements after their Core Zone Inspections were completed in the Duncan Aviation facility.”
