Duncan Aviation Celebrates 15 Years of its Engine Exchange Program

June 15, 2020

LINCOLN, NEB — In 2005, Duncan Aviation launched the Turbine Engine Exchange Program for the Honeywell TFE731 engine giving operators of aging aircraft more options when it comes to their engine maintenance.

It goes without saying that as aircraft age, the cost of overhauling the engine increases, and the notion of exchanging the engine instead of overhauling becomes more appealing.

Why would a customer consider engine exchange? “It is simple economics,” says Leo Sawatzski, Manager of Engine Acquisition & Sales. “Aircraft engines have only so much life before they are no longer economically viable. Choosing to exchange the engines gives operators of older aircraft the ability to fly longer with increased safety and a reduced cost. Opting for exchange will also minimize your downtime while keeping you on schedule.”

In addition to the Honeywell TFE731-2, -3, and -5 engines, the Duncan Aviation exchange program will source many makes and models of business aircraft engines, including Pratt & Whitney.

Duncan Aviation is a Honeywell TFE731 Heavy Maintenance facility with more than 40 years of experience. All engines receive a comprehensive pre-purchase evaluation and a thorough technical review. We handle all of the transaction agreements and legal requirements, such as title and lien searches. All engines purchased from Duncan Aviation are ready for immediate installation.
