BATTLE CREEK, MICH — Duncan Aviation announces the upcoming open house and tour of Pratt & Whitney Canada’s (P&WC) newest engine HSI repair facility, which is located within Duncan Aviation’s Battle Creek facility. This 3,700-square-foot engine shop and office space is the first of its kind in a major business aviation Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) facility.
For more than 30 years, Duncan Aviation has provided engine overhaul management and Hot Section Inspection (HSI) services for P&WC through their relationship with P&WC and a network of authorized service providers. Both Pratt & Whitney Canada and Duncan Aviation share common values when it comes to customer support and quality, and are committed to providing excellent customer service and superior products.
“Having Pratt & Whitney Canada on-site with support for engine maintenance manual-level work creates a huge advantage for the customers from both companies,” says Dan Arrick, Turbine Engine Service Sales Rep for Duncan Aviation. “Not only will P&WC be able to respond quicker to customers’ needs, it allows us to minimize customers’ (aircraft) downtime while scheduled in for maintenance at Battle Creek.”
Duncan Aviation’s John Biever, Duncan Aviation’s Vice President of Airframe Services, agrees. “Our customers stand to benefit the most,” he says. “Shortening downtime and controlling expenses are on the forefront of every operator’s mind. Having a P&WC HSI Repair facility located in Battle Creek and staffed by the OEM cuts the time and expense necessary to send out parts for factory inspection.”
The engine shop open house will be held at Duncan Aviation’s Battle Creek, Michigan, location on May 23 and will feature a guided tour through the adjoining Duncan Aviation facility. This event will coincide with an eight-hour Duncan Intelligence LIVE IA Renewal Seminar.
