LINCOLN, NEB. — Duncan Aviation is pleased to announce that Alan Huggett has accepted the position of Northwest Regional Manager. In this position, Huggett will help operators in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Utah, northern California and northern Nevada become more familiar with the capabilities and services offered by Duncan Aviation, including airframe and engine maintenance, paint, interior, avionics installations, avionics/instrument/accessory repair and overhaul, and parts support.
Currently a Service Sales Representative with Duncan Aviation’s Battle Creek, Michigan, location, Huggett will transition to the Regional Manager position this summer. He will relocate to Provo, Utah, with an office at Duncan Aviation’s new Provo location, which will open in August.
Doug Alleman, Regional Manager Supervisor, says, “Alan has an excellent technical and customer service background, understanding both the aircraft and the business environment in which they must be operated. Just as he has done in the service sales area in Battle Creek, I am confident he will put these skills to use for his customers in the Northwest United States, helping them to get the most value possible out of their aircraft maintenance, service and upgrade expenditures.”
A native of Battle Creek, Huggett left Michigan after high school to join the Air Force as an F-15 Mechanic. That is where he, as a dock chief, began developing his program management skills. After the Air Force, Huggett worked at Flight International as an A&P Lear team member mainly working 12-Year and 12,000-hour inspections. His professional aeronautics training helped him expand his management skills and he worked for a time as a maintenance sales rep. He came to Duncan Aviation in 1998 and worked as a Tech III on a Learjet team and a project manager. After six years, he moved to service sales to help expand the Bombardier business for Duncan Aviation-Battle Creek.
