Duncan Aviation has appointed Tracy Bohaboj as sales representative for government programmes at the company's full-service facility in Lincoln, Nebraska. In this new role, Bohaboj will focus on assisting the company's government programmes team in pursuing additional opportunities with US and international government agencies.
“My role in engineering has afforded me the opportunity to develop relationships with customers in Egypt, China, Japan, Norway, France, Mexico and Canada. I'm looking forward continuing to serve these valued Duncan Aviation customers in my new role,” she says.
In her nearly 16 years at Duncan Aviation, Bohaboj has worked with the structural and interior engineering teams and most recently has served as team leader and certification coordinator for engineering, leading her team in the design, analysis, FAA certification and international validation efforts on a range of engineering projects.
After earning her BSc degree in aerospace engineering from Iowa State University in 2003, she worked as a mechanical engineer for New Mexico State University, located at the NASA Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia. There, she supported NASA's Balloon Program Office and was a member of the Deployment Experiments for Ballooning on Mars team where she conducted subscale prototype tests, developing roles for balloon technology in planetary exploration.
Bohaboj went on to accept an aerospace engineering position at Raven Aerostar in Sulphur Springs, Texas before joining the engineering team at Duncan Aviation as a structural engineer in 2007. Over the years her careful analysis of numerous designs and schematics have ensured the success of complex avionics installations, special mission installations and countless interior alterations on customers' aircraft.
“We are excited to have Tracy join our team. Her knowledge and experience will help us grow and pursue more opportunities with government agencies around the world,” says modifications sales manager Nate Klenke.
