LINCOLN, NEB — Duncan Aviation recently launched a program that makes its highly regarded Engineering & Certification Services available for projects throughout the aerospace industry. Although the company’s engineering and certification professionals have always been available to assist other companies, Duncan Aviation is expanding its engineering and certification services to include a team dedicated solely to supporting external requests.
“As time and personnel have allowed, we’ve helped other companies work through certification projects and develop Supplemental Type Certificates (STCs),” says Shawn Carraher, Manager of Certification Programs in Lincoln, Nebraska. “Now, though, greater demand throughout the aerospace industry has shown a significant need for qualified engineering and certification professionals. As a result, this new team will work exclusively on projects for customers throughout the aviation industry, while our current team continues to serve Duncan Aviation’s core customers.”
For more than 20 years, Duncan Aviation Engineering & Certification team members have worked on aircraft systems and structures and approved design changes for interiors/airframe modifications and system installations and upgrades with an exemplary history of safety and compliance. Collectively, this new team has more than 80 years of engineering and aviation experience, which allows the team to recognize, manage, and mitigate risk for our customers for timely and efficient project completions.
This team has more than 50 years of experience in aviation engineering and certification. In the last four years, the Engineering & Certification team at Duncan Aviation has completed 11 new and amended STCs for external customers, with two additional in progress, and there are more than a dozen new proposals for STCs in the initial stages.
“There’s a great need in the industry for engineering and certification services, and we are in a position to help fill that gap,” says Michael Hill, Enterprise Manager of Engineering Services for Duncan Aviation. “Call it altrusim if you will, but we see a need in the industry, and we know Duncan Aviation’s Engineering & Certification Team has the ability, experience and knowledge to help. We feel that by helping the industry, we’re also helping our customers.”
