Duncan Aviation has appointed Logan McCabe to lead the team at the company's newest satellite repair station in the Washington, DC, area. McCabe will join the new shop in Chantilly Air's newly completed Jet Center in Virginia in mid July.
“I'll be working directly with customers and building relationships in addition to completing avionics system installations and service work,” says McCabe. “I'll do whatever it takes to keep the new shop growing and humming along. It's a gorgeous new facility, and I'm excited to have the opportunity to grow with a new Duncan Aviation satellite shop.”
After graduating, McCabe began working as an installations specialist at Duncan Aviation's satellite shop in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. From there, he joined the team at the Duncan Aviation satellite shop in Austin, Texas, as the crew leader.
Duncan Aviation and Chantilly Air have been meeting the needs of business aviation customers for decades, and this latest endeavour will offer complementary services to maintenance and avionics customers in and around the Manassas Regional airport in northern Virginia.
Located roughly 30 miles from downtown Washington, DC, Chantilly Air's new FBO adds 60,000 sq ft of hangar space along with a state-of-the-art FBO that includes: conference rooms; pilot lounge with private snooze rooms; crew fitness centre and private shower facilities; VIP waiting and screening area; rentable office space; and Go Rentals onsite.
Manager of satellite operations Matt Nelson says Duncan Aviation started serving customers in the mid Atlantic region at the new satellite shop in Manassas in April of this year: “We are tremendously excited to have a presence in this region and honoured to be housed in this new facility. Our relationship with Chantilly Air allows both companies to build our brands and create a strong, local presence. With Logan and all of the other team members pitching in to get things done, the new shop will thrive.”
The original concept of placing Duncan Aviation's technicians closer to customers hasn't changed and neither has the desire to place Duncan Aviation's satellites in facilities owned and operated by reliable and esteemed aviation companies like Chantilly Air, which has been providing maintenance, fuelling and charter-management services for nearly 30 years.
Satellite shops are supported by the full-service Duncan Aviation avionics and instrument shop at its headquarters in Lincoln, Nebraska. The satellites, including this newest station in the Chantilly Air hangar, will inspect, install, troubleshoot, service and repair virtually every type of equipment business aircraft have aboard.
