Duncan Aviation recently modified a cabin management system (CMS) for a Gulfstream G550, resolving an issue with obsolete parts without the need to replace all the switch panels or provide major alterations to all of the drink rails. Using a new distribution system for the entertainment portion of the CMS allowed the customer to upgrade to newer, more advanced high definition monitors, high definition multimedia interface panels and touchscreen controllers.
“This modification gives the customer custom entertainment options such as streaming video, HDMI ports and touchscreens, as well as control of the cabin through iPad's remote application,” says senior avionics sales rep Dennis Kruse. “It's an ideal solution for customers who aren't ready to replace veneer/woodwork and drink rails but want access to high definition entertainment content with the look and feel of a new CMS. Not only do customers get a customisable in-flight entertainment system, but they'll also get new equipment that is fully supported and has a warranty.”
Duncan Aviation is also pleased to announce that Brian Foersch has accepted the position of Bombardier service sales representative at its full-service MRO in Lincoln, Nebraska. In his new position, Foersch joins the Bombardier sales team, coordinating maintenance transactions for the Global and Challenger series product line.
“I'm excited to broaden my role here at Duncan, as well as serving our customers on a different level,” he says. “Coming from the engine side of Duncan Aviation, I believe my knowledge of multiple engine platforms will benefit our customers by either fielding questions or providing them with the information they need to create an accurate proposal.”
Duncan Aviation airframe services sales manager Troy Nail says that Foersch is in a great position for success, as he brings a vast amount of experience on the Bombardier model: “Foersch's experience and customer services will play a vital role with clientele interactions and negotiations during his sales role. I am confident he will be a great asset to the sales team and current Bombardier customers.”
Foersch served five years in the United States Marine Corps before joining Duncan Aviation. He started as an engine technician and over the past seven years has held positions of engine lead tech and engine line team leader for Rolls Royce, Pratt & Whitney and Williams engines.
