Duncan Aviation’s relocated Teterboro, New Jersey facility within the Meridian FBO now includes the addition of airframe services, the Lincoln, Nebraska-based MRO provider announced this week. Previously, Duncan had provided avionics repair and installation at its Teterboro location. However, with the sale of its aircraft charter/management division, Meridian also disbanded its Part 145 repair station that primarily supported its charter aircraft.
As a result, Duncan added equipment and staff at the satellite operation, as well as FAA certification to provide airframe services at its new Meridian location. “I believe adding airframe services, such as small inspections, Chapter 12 services—oxygen, tire, strut, and fluid services—brakes, and squawk work, among others, is a great convenience for our customers,” said Duncan Teterboro satellite manager Jeff Glanville. “Combined with the FBO services Meridian offers, we’re now a one-stop shop.”
One of Duncan’s key hires for Teterboro airframe services was former Meridian airframe technician Michael Kotosky, who is leading the company’s airframe team there. “We feel fortunate to have him,” Glanville said. “With his expertise, we’re building this from scratch.”
Meridian president Steve Chandoha said Duncan’s presence at Meridian is a “great benefit.” He added, “Duncan Aviation’s commitment to excellence mirrors Meridian’s, so we’re very pleased at the additional capabilities we will be able to offer customers.”
