Duncan Aviation Cutting 300-plus Jobs

LINCOLN, Neb. - Duncan Aviation says 170 jobs in Lincoln are among the more than 300 jobs Duncan is cutting nationwide.

Duncan said Tuesday that 122 of the cuts are at its facility in Battle Creek, Mich., and a dozen cuts are being made in other company avionics facilities.

Duncan provides aircraft maintenance in more than a dozen states at more than 20 service locations.

Chairman Todd Duncan says sharp declines in corporate flights and global business closings have force his Lincoln-based company to downsize.

The company had already cut hours and wages to forestall layoffs. Before the cuts, Duncan had 1,400 employees in Lincoln.

In January, the company said it was delaying plans to build a $58 million maintenance center in Provo, Utah.
